i am an ocd, cleanfreak. you heard it here folks - i.am.a.freak. i tend to be over the top about cleaning etc. i am all about purging and you wouldn't find a place in my house that would be hoarder-esq. srsly.

i've realized over the last little while that my priorities that seem to hold life or death consequences if they dont get completed really hold no value what.so.ever, and i've started enjoying the smaller things. it's like my "ta-da" moment hit when at the end of the day, the nuggets crash in unexpected spots from pure exhaustion because they had such a tremendous day i used up their energy capacity. it's great to constantly hear from each of them how exciting this adventure was & how much they loved to do _____ this. hate to pat myself on the back, but boo-yah, i am. i have hit the nugget lotto and appreciate every minute i have the privilege to grow with both of them.
so i say it here & now. the next time i'm
