Might be Crazy, but not a Cleaver.

I stood in my kitchen last night and I told myself – You Are Not June Cleaver!!! I repeated it over and over again.

Can someone please tell me how five days in I can be to this state already? Last night I had an internal mini melt down. Dinner was ok, but not wonderful. My new dishes don’t fit into the cabinet as I would like. I have not figured out how to wash dishes without getting water all over the counter and floor. I felt like I had to be the one in the kitchen, I had to cook, do laundry, deal with dogs and Shelby all at once. What is wrong with me?

I have to remember that just because I have a wedding band on my finger it doesn’t mean that June Cleaver has taken over my body. I will not be a perfecto wife and mother that easy.  

There are so many things that I want to do and do differently this upcoming year and I think that has caused me to throw things in fast forward even when I don’t need to.

Am I alone – or did others fly into crazy gotta be June Cleaver mode the first week after marriage?

If you haven’t been able to tell – the picture has nothing to do with this post. Thank you to my new Aunt Debbie for taking this picture! This was our first dance – we did the Evolution of Dance – look it up on YouTube.

FYI: JAG was so trying to help me, but I kept kicking him out of the kitchen.

  1. I am not sure if this helps any or not, but my mom messed up her first meal that she cooked for my Dad and other members of the family. So not only did she have to cook for my Dad, but his family as well. The chicken was not done and she forgot to put things on the table. My dad laughed, she cried and thought the world had come to an end because she wanted everything to be perfect. Trust me, it was not her only mistake in the kitchen because I have some fond memories of the bunt cake that was lopsided and the dressing that was spoiled one year for the holiday's because it was left on top of the counter above the diswasher uncooked and the heat got to it. That is an awesome picture of your first dance so keep on making memories that you will laugh at 20 years from now.
