Clearing My Conscience

Ha! Based on some recent (and hilarious!) e-mails from readers here, I'd just like to make it clear that in the post below I am in no way condoning abandoning your responsibilities in favor of "seizing the day", except very rarely and when we feel called to do so (by God, not our own impetuousness). I did that my first two years of homeschooling. It was fun, yes. We learned even while we neglected, yes. But I'm working very hard on the virtue of discipline this year. I must say, it felt wonderful soaking up life's goodness the other day knowing the house was clean and schooling was finished (well, all except copywork).

I just don't want those already with tendencies toward indiscipline to be poorly influenced here. I don't know who you are, but you do. :-)

The fact that someone may have sent you an email, scolding you about the below post is really silly.


Lighten up people of the internet! Do you honestly think her post meant she wants everyone to leave the dishes in the sink for a gambling spree in Las Vegas?

I have to agree, it actually made me upset that anyone would have the nerve to say something to you about this!

Marla said...

I agree with Kathleen and Barbie.

Anyway, you said it in the title of your post -- a "little" impulsiveness.

God bless! :)

Well, let me tell you, this overly serious Martha-type mom benefits GREATLY from your wise words and beautiful example! You have inspired balance in my life. And you are always so clearly aware of your accountability before God, so I am not sure what anybody's problem could be!

Hahaha. That is funny. Well, at least you know random people reading out there are genuinely (maybe) concerned about you. Lol. Silly people.

Seriously, though. Would you like to meet me in Reno for drinks and nickle slots?

I'd meet you in Reno, Margaret. :)
