falling off the wagon....

it is funny
how easily
one can fall
the organized wagon.

last week
we had menu plans,
grocery lists made and added to
as items were used,
homework schedule up and running...
laundry loads under control.

this week?
a bad day yesterday
and a resulting headache last night...
overflowing hampers,
take out for supper last night,
dishes in the sink
and rushing to get last night's homework done
in between a trip to convenience store
for gatorade
because we ran out of juice boxes for lunches.

how did this happen?
i guess i'm either on the ball...
or totally under it...
there is no in-between.

and today...
i'm under.

I do the same thing. I'm either on top of everything or madly chasing organization. It seems to be part of life.

me too! i think i am completely disorganized and so i have to be utterly on top of everything or it all falls like a house of cards :) i am in awe of people who manage to keep it together all the time!
