{wiws} Uninspired and Out of Time

Linking it up for another fine week of What I Wore Sunday with FLAP

OK, so, not as if anyone noticed, but I took a vacation from blogging this past week. Really, it was less of a vacation and more of a personal challenge: spend less time online in order to spend more REAL LIFE time. I honestly thought my house and soul would sparkle!


I made it to daily Mass twice this week and I AM proud of that. Plus, I just feel more focused and peaceful.

The house? Well, by Thursday night I considered rendering my resignation as wife, mother, chef, and chief bottlescrubber.

The fact is that I live with 8 other people.

Two of them actively try to destroy my laundry piles, mopped floors, and clean sinks.

The 3 year old and 1 year old are only slightly less problematic.

So, I'm going to try to ease back into a bit of social media during one portion of the day, and devote the rest of the time to REAL LIFE stuff.

Whew! That was long and boring!

We attended Mass on Saturday evening because Joe was a scheduled altar server. The day was spent clearing out the garage, so by the time I looked at the clock, I realized that I barely had time to change and put on makeup.

It shows.

Cardi: Target
Tank: No idea. Scratchy tag is ripped out.
Skirt: Macy's
Leggings: Target
Shoes: Dansko from
Earrings: Old Navy
Necklace: Christmas 2010 gift from Kyle

Also, Will wanted in on the fashion action.

The parts of Father's homily that I was permitted to hear were focused on Love. True, unselfish, sacrificial love: "If you love your children, you will be a good parent. If you love your spouse, you will be a good spouse. If you love God, you WILL be a good son or daughter."
