A Pancake Sort of Day

Yesterday I emptied my dresser drawers and disposed of half my clothes. I was in one of those moods where I was just tired of what I wear. I put the clothes in a garbage bag and took them to the Goodwill before I had time to change my mind. Today I opened my drawers and wondered where all my clothes were. Sometimes I go through these stages when I decide that TODAY, I am going to change my life. I will exercise, eat better, meditate, clean, play with the kids, figure out my life's plan and have dinner on the table by six. These typically are the days that I find myself standing in my kitchen in my pajamas (because I gave away all my clothes) at dinnertime staring into an empty fridge thinking it might be pancakes again for dinner.

I think as mothers, and as women, we place too many demands on ourselves. And the irony of it all is that we are our own worst critic. No one places more pressure on us, than us. So my plans to change my life in a day are futile I know. However, freeing myself of clothes I have not worn in the last six  months or when wearing them I feel unattractive, is a step in the right direction toward changing my life for the better. And as for the pancakes, when served with milk and a few blueberries, it kind of sounds healthy. I wonder if the same can be said for Oreos?

Love & Light,


Here is a video that makes me smile.

  1. I have been working on the GREAT PURGE of 2009 for 3 years....I just keep changing the year. In an effort to organize my house/my life! My kids love pancake for dinner nights....mostly because I put chocolate chips in. Oreos are a dairy product....I think...

  2. That video of Nolan brought happy tears to my eyes. He's so precious!!!!
