What I have realized is that my world will not fall apart if my house is really messy and I am behind (really behind) on laundry. This past weekend was the messiest my house has probably ever been and you know, it was also one of the funnest weekends I have had in a long time. I didn't do anything extravagant. It was the simple pleasures I enjoyed. We went to two pumpkin patches, did a corn maze, had a hay ride and went to a petting zoo. We also slept late, went to breakfast and picked out a new family pet. I had so much fun just being in the moment and seeing my kids enjoy things for the first time. I still am behind on laundry and housework and for those that know me, that is a big deal. I used to be really anal about thing being picked up, but I have been learning to let go and just go with it a little more.
