Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
Philippians 1:6

i was unable to keep up with the cleaning and washing before i had a child.

it was a problem then.

i think we've moved beyond "problem" now.

so far beyond, in fact, that i cannot even see "problem" anymore.

now all i see is "tragedy."

You're so cute!
A little 'uplifting' advice?
You will never ever finish anything you start for the rest of your child-rearing life.
That's my take on it: You can take it or leave it...
The piles of laundry will always stare up at you menacingly, they are the enemy.
Your pile of sweet love will get too squirmy to hold before too long, that is the best reason I can think of to let the laundry pile up and up and up...

If your house is tragedy then I don't know what mine will be... in fact I might just want to hire a maid now for the future...I am horribly messy and I try to be better all the just doesn't work...I don't know what's wrong with me. I'm lazy...I don't know how to fix it. Poor Alex when we get married! Ahhhhh!

Oh and by the way... Ellie looked fabulous in the "Diva" outfit we got her! She is just a doll... can't wait to see her and you guys again. Love you cuz.
