Saturday Reality

Blogland has been full of "reality" posts lately. Lots of talk about how the world of crafty bloggers is full of "perfect lives". Everyone shares their pretty pictures, gorgeous home decor, amazing crafts and fabulous lives, but much of the daily reality doesn't get posted. I, on the other hand, run a pretty boring blog. I have nothing amazing or earth shattering to share when it comes to crafting, just stuff I love to make. No perfect house, no perfect children, no incredible ideas...what you get around here is my everyday nonsense and lots of lists. I'm a little self indulgent with the lists, but hey it's my blog. So today, I thought I share a little LIST of my reality for today:

  • the garbage and recycle need to go out.
  • some of last weeks clean laundry is still folded neatly on top of my washer, it never got put away.
  • our Tivo has gone rogue and is not recording several shows it's supposed to, like for example the last 2 episodes of Army Wives, and instead records multiple episodes of shows we don't care too much about. Does anyone need 10 episodes of Gangland? Ugh.
  • I'm starving this morning, but nothing sounds good to eat.
  • I am taking the Miller's Analogy Test for grad school on Monday and haven't studied for it at all. Not sure how to really study for it anyway...
  • my applications with school districts aren't getting processed because I'm not yet certified, even though these districts supposedly participate in the intern teacher program. There are several autism classrooms open, for which I'd love to have the opportunity to interview. Doubting there are tons of certified applicants that have my experience lining up for these positions. Double Ugh.
  • I only have 2 sessions today, due to changes in summer schedule and cancellations, yet I still woke up super early.
  • I'm lacking in motivation, especially when it comes to projects I should finish.
  • I have indulged in too much dairy this week and my stomach is not happy about it.
  • it's super triple digit HOT around here and the a/c has been running non stop all morning. Can't wait to see this month's electric bill...
  • my sister is traipsing around Italy and I'm green with envy.
  • there is a cricket in my house. It's driving me crazy.
  • there is a cord that runs through my living room and connects to one of the bazillion electronic contraptions owned by my husband. It too drives me crazy.
  • the house is a disaster and I should get off the computer and get to vacuuming....
Happy reality!

Sounds much like reality ;) Thanks for sharing. Life is far from perfect and we have a hard time acknowledging that! Oh -and the cord across the room... I think that I would end up cutting out of frustration (and then of course feel guilty about it!)

I love it. Thanks for sharing your reality! I may borrow this idea...

Ahhhh. . . reality.

I think it's funny that people are perturbed about what others blog about. I mean really, who makes you read it? And who says I want to spend all day reading about reality ... I live reality :).

I think you have a lovely balance of real and creative. I hope some of those work out ... like getting a job you are very qualified for!

Reality bites sometimes, but I can see a lot of hope in what you're saying, too. SO many possibilities -- and there's no place to go but up, right? : ) Good luck with the test on Monday!
