Okay, I've been stressing about this six word memoir tag thing for way too long. That's my nature. How do I find six words to define my life right now? It's hard. I think that since both Tracy and Corinne tagged me I should be allowed to use twelve words, but I think that might not go over big in the blog-o-sphere. Anyway, just six words...here goes...
Incessantly tidying, increasingly exhausted, but content.
I kept thinking of all these gerunds like "scrubbing," "teaching," and "juggling" but since I am in the throws of spring cleaning in my house right now, I went with tidying.
Frankly, I feel like I am always doing that even when I am not in spring cleaning mode. I always say that when I die someone will say, "She was always cleaning her house." And someone else will respond, "Oh, was her house very clean, then?" to which the first person will reply, "Oh, no....but she was always cleaning it."
To know me is to know that I am always tired. When my flex account starts over this spring, I just might go in for a sleep study. I swear I have sleep apnea. I have a dream of not feeling tire all the time...
Yet even with all the cleaning and the chronic tiredness, I am very content with my existence. I have a fabulous little family, great extended family on both sides and fun friends. Who needs cleanliness and sleep?
I tag Quita (since she still hasn't done the last thing I tagged her for), Amber, Wendy, Sally and Jenni.
