Post from Glamorous Insanity
Every mom knows its easier to keep things organized. From cleaning days, to dinner, to date nights…it all has to be planned to make things run smoothly, right? On days I don’t organize, I feel completely out of whack. I function slower, and get lazy quicker. Planning to me is like attention is to Tila Tequila… Essential.
The problem I have with planning is planning EVERYTHING! I mean this whole mom thing is great, and planning makes me feel good but at times I wonder what is too far?
Let me give you some examples, and you feel free to tell me what is OK, and what is complete craziness.
Little Miss Sugar : “Mama, can we go to the park?”
Me: “No, honey, we are making dinner early today so we don’t have time.”
Little Miss Spice : “Mama, can you make Spaghetti tomorrow?”
Me: “What’s on the Menu for tomorrow? Let’s go see. No, looks like I’m making Turkey Burgers and pasta salad. Spaghetti is next Tuesday.”
Example 3 :
Mr. Right: “Why don’t we put the kids to bed early tonight and…..”
Me : “Sex is scheduled for Friday, You know that.”
OK, OK, I don’t plan sex…..Well, at least I don’t tell my husband when I do.I don’t really plan days ahead, but I do think hmm, “I guess we can have some romance tonight.” or “Man, I’m going to put on The Bachelor, so Mr. Right will go in the bedroom early.”…
Oh, C’mon, you know you do that too!
As a teen, I remember planning NOTHING and that felt great. Being spontaneous is an awesome feeling and I miss it! But my senses tell me to plan so much that I almost planned a “Spontaneous Saturday” for each day of the week to do something spontaneous.
Do you plan too much in your life, or am I the only one?
