I know this post will strike a chord with many.


A friend recently made this comment on my blog:


Dear Sandy, I really enjoy the theme of your blog – I love to entertain but am working on accepting my NOT-perfectness.


My not-perfectness today is that my house is a mess and I need to whip it into shape before I attend 12 soccer games this weekend, so I don’t come home each time to a messy feeling home. (Yes, my 3 kids are playing in the local Cup this weekend!)


I can be put into a bad mood if my house is in shambles. Especially when I return from being gone.  It doesn’t have to be perfect, it just has to have some kind of order.


What is your non-perfectness?
