I go to look up the definition and this is what I find:
: not false or imitation : real, actual
: true to one's own personality, spirit, or character
Ok, once again I assure myself that I am totally authentic. Here comes the funny part. I run into my neighbor later that day and we are talking about reading books. I say that I love books as well but I listen to them so that I can clean that house and do laundry while I am listening to my books.
WHAT!!! I had to laugh later because I don't clean while listening to books! Hell no! I listen to my book while I make art! I cut, paint, glue and glitter while the dishes sit in purgatory in the sink! Did I want her to think that I was a good mom and great homemaker with a totally clean house? Does she really care? Totally not authentic!!!
I sometimes wait to do dishes until the next day, I walk over socks for days to see if anybody else will pick them up I once even wore dirty jeans that has underwear stuck in the leg that I didn't realize until I was in the middle of Walmart! I vacuum and dust around objects. I shove toys under my kids beds just so it looks cleaner- and I make art and I am happy! This is authentically me! My whole family is silly and stinkin' happy!
|My husband and I being silly|
|My daughters being silly!|
Until next time-
