Why does it take so long...

Why does it take so long to cut a piece of watermelon?

Last night a washed off a nice large watermelon and was about to cut it when I noticed the counter was a little dirty. I went to grab the wash cloth I had layed out the day before and realized it was pretty dirty. I walked the wash cloth to the washing machine and realized I had to move the dry clothes out, the clothes from the washer into the dryer and then start a new load. After doing that I walked into my off to check my e-mail and was reminded of a vinyl order I needed to print out. I started printing it out and one of the boys asked where their piece of watermelon was. I walked back into the kitchen and noticed Brigham had gotten into the trash can and there was papers all over the floor. I leaned over and picked up each of those papers and a half eaten apple and decided to just take the trash out so it wouldn't happen again. As I finished emptying the trash into the large container outside I looked over to my garden and wanted to have a better look. I was checking it all out and thought it needed to be water a little. After finishing the watering I was walking back to the house with the trash can in hand when I smelled something gross. Brigham needed a diaper change, bad. After changing his diaper I walked to the kitchen sink to wash my hands and realize the watermelon is still sitting there. So I cut a piece out for everyone.
That is the story of my life. There is always something to pick-up, to wipe off, to put away, to clean up, to reorganize, to fix, to change.......It's a never ending cycle until they all leave, get married and start having their own children! :)

Then you get to start it all over again - with the grandchildren. The blessings outweigh the work. Keep up the good job. LOL
