I Started Out As Superwoman And Turned Into An Old Hag

Do you ever wake up some mornings and feel like you could take on the world? You immediately feel determined and energized, like you can do anything? 

That was my Saturday.

I spent all week telling myself how great it was going to be to have the weekend off. No plans or places to travel and cleaning was out of the question. For once we were home with no agenda.

Naturally I woke up on Saturday earlier than I ever do because who would sleep in on their day off? #craycray. It didn't really bother me though, just more time to lay around.


It's a little hazy, but I think it all started out with seeing a dish from the night before in the sink as I went to get my coffee. I thought, "Ah what the heck - I'll clean that one dish and then plant my booty on the couch."

The rest is really a blur. Before I knew it I was vacuuming out my freezer and deep conditioning carpets. Well, Jon was deep conditioning carpets while I had my hands deep in old ice cream and Clorox.

We seriously wore ourselves out and had a spotless house all before 12pm.

I'm not complaining in the least because it was totally needed, just not anticipated. And since we still had the whole day ahead of us (and it was B-E-A-utiful) we decided it was a perfect day for a hike.


Did I mention that Saturday after we returned home from our hike and went to bed, Oskar woke us up at 5am puking all over the carpet Jon had just deep cleaned? My superwoman high deflated and I turned into a half-asleep, tired old hag who had to clean up puke.

Life of a dog owner, y'all. There is no such thing as a spotless home.

  1. I had one of those superly-energetic Saturday mornings a few weeks ago. Actually, they're kind of awesome. Too bad about the mess in the middle of the night, though. I would have had the husband cleaning that up, though, nice wife that I am (I always tell him that it's literally his job to clean up disgusting things since he's a nurse and all...)

  2. Hahaha that's happened to me on more than one occasion so you aren't alone! I'll say I'm just going to clean one thing then the next thing I know I'm cleaning the entire house! Love the pictures from the hike... just not the dog puke at 5 am. Never fun to wake up to! Happy Monday!

  4. HAHAH this is awesome!! The hike looks beautiful! Was that Roan Mountain?!

  5. This is awesome and yes I love it when I have these cleaning moments!!!

  6. There IS no such thing...
    Hope your fur baby is doing better.

  7. AMEN. it has occurred to me that SOME part of my house will always have dog hair no matter how much I vaccuum or sweep.

  8. i LOVE the pics of your dogs! what kind of dogs are they? great danes?

  9. Ha, I have those days too! I always feel so accomplished after. Your hike & hair look amazing :) BOO to the dog puke though... thumbs down.

  10. I wish I could have had a superwoman day this weekend - instead I could barely manage to half-sweep, half-vacuum the house and not clean a single dish. Ooops. So much for the productive weekend I had planned!

  11. Sounds like a pretty great day off to me. :-)

  12. Where do you get this weekend morning motivation!? I would love to get some for myself :-)

  13. I swear our dogs could be siblings!!! Those productive days are awesome, but sorry to hear about the mess the very next morning. What a pain!

  14. These are such beautiful photos, your hair is looking fabulous! I could use a random bought of organizational energy coming my way, life's been so busy the clutter has just been piling up! It must have felt good to have the rest of the day at least to enjoy your cleanliness.

  15. HAHA I love this... I'm hoping to wake up with the Superwoman feeling tomorrow! Probably should be in bed right now if I want that...
