A New Found Super Power

I've recently discovered that I possess a super power. I am the Invisible Girl. My children don't hear my voice, either. Apparently, it's just above or below their register to hear. My husband also has a hard time hearing my voice, so not only am I invisible, I'm almost a ghost.

No one "sees" me doing tasks around the house, no one notices when chores have been completed, but buddy, let me tell you, I am called on the carpet when things are not done.

I'm like a pesky gnat zipping and zooming among the chaos, picking up baby toys and loading the dishwasher.

So small, so insignificant.

Of the seven items on my "To Do" list this evening, I've accomplished precisely 2 of them. Buddy's backpack is packed and ready for tomorrow morning and I cleaned out my purse (major disaster area!).

This one is going to be short because I still have laundry, dishes, and a few other smaller tasks that really need attention this evening.

I am hoping that with school starting, I will have more time during the day to devote to my regularly scheduled activities and more time to get organized. Fingers crossed!

  1. Hum, I seem to be afflicted with the same problem...putting milk away, clearing off crumbs when someone who shall remain nameless doesn't use a paper towel, flushing, making the bed, dusting....etc. But if I miss the "Let's have ice cream." call which is code for scoop it up rosemary, yup, I am on the carpet right next to you.
