Life seems so convoluted right now, with the nights starting earlier and not enough time in each day to get basic things done. There must be other mothers like me feeling like an intricate puzzle piece without knowing where her puzzle is. Or even why she is so puzzled.
There must be, and that is comforting.
I've been reading the Anne of Green Gables books ~ do you know Anne ends up having 6 children and has a live-in housekeeper/cook? Imagine having a housekeeper/cook. The beds are made, hot meals appear on the table thrice a day, the floors are cleaned, laundry is washed and put away. Everything tidied.
It would be nice to have more of that these days.
