14 Mar PROPER PATRICIA
Have you ever met her? Proper Pat I mean. She has everything under control, everything is in place. If you haven’t met her, I have, I actually used to be her; I believe. But I am walking away from her.

My husband thought it strange too, that I would get all cranky and irritable at the slightest drop of stuff. He often tells me that life is too short here on earth to lose my joy over small stuff. He tells me to learn to learn to enjoy my life, and sincerely, I thought him very strange. How could he be so insensitive.
Then came Joshua, Joseph and Josiah (our sons) and things got even “better”. I would shoo them off most times when they wanted play. Being uptight, impulsive spanks and yelling became a pattern for me as I raised my boys.
This is not what I wanted for life; I wanted to make good memories of me for my boys. I started relaxing a bit, taking things easy; I started living unimportant things undone so I could save energy for the important things. Let the socks lay there till morning, won’t hurt anyone would it? Allow the tie rest on the chair and do not nag about it. Let the clothes hang on there, it does not make me a bad mother or wife. I can do it later, I’ll focus on taking care of my husband and children, spending time with them and making good memories of me for them.
