Free To Be Imperfect

Raise your hand if you have way too much on your plate.

I know I’m not alone here. Just when you start making some progress on your to-do list, you look up and realize that the sun is setting on yet another day. Where does the time go? Even the dog has to remind me that it’s dinner time once in a while.

Even though I’m always going in a dozen different directions, I like to think I still cut out quality time to take care of the Mr. and the pooch. Any little thing I can do to show my dudes I’m looking out for them, I’m there, right down to choosing a laundry detergent that will work for the various sensitivities in our family. My husband is chemically sensitive to artificial fragrances and my sweet Gryffin dog has sensitive skin. Usually, these two are the definition of manliness, but they’re a little high maintenance when it comes to what they lay their heads down at night.

That’s why I like all Free and Clear. No need to worry about dyes and artificial scents. It’s also hypoallergenic so I can wash Gryffin dog’s dingy bed and it won’t give him the itches. That’s one less thing I have to worry about!

I’ve had to learn to give myself some slack when a couple things go undone now and again. Maybe I can’t always have a perfectly organized home and maybe sometimes those last 20 emails will have to wait another day, but hey, tomorrow is another day.

For now it’s nice to know everyone will sleep easy tonight and that I’m Free to be imperfect!
