My Foiled Cleaning Emanciptation

So the other day I posted my Emancipation from cleaning. I made my wonderful points, stated what I would rather be doing, and said that is what I was going to do.

The next morning, my little one decided to tell everyone how mommy (me) said everyone in the house was a slob except him and mommy. (me again)

That set off everyone saying how we are “all” slobs. I said that if I stopped cleaning up after everyone, point made in my last post, the house would turn into a disgusting.

Then my oldest son chimed in how I always start doing things and them leave piles around the house for a couple of days. I was about to Tear him a new one when I realized that he was…..uh……..right!!!!! (sniff)

So, I spent the ENTIRE day cleaning.
And cleaning, and cleaning, well you get the idea.

Now I don’t know what to say.
Except, do what I have to do.

I have some other ideas also but I’ll save them for later.

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website,, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
