Adulting is hard, folks. There is no way to sugar coat it. But, you know what would make it easier? Awards. Yes, I mean if we are going to give our kids participation awards for sports and certificates for completing levels in school work than it isn’t out of the realm to want a little recognition for the stuff that adults do to little fanfare. But, lets change that! Save, pin and share your faves and lets make adulting a little more tolerable!
If you are like me laundry isn’t just a chore it’s a nemesis. If you are someone who excels in this, great. If you are like me and actually get laundry folded and put away the same day it is washed, this is an excuse to shout it off the roof tops! Seriously, I salute you.
There is no shame in the drive through game because some of us should be getting a salary as an uber driver for our kids. But, if the stars align and you are home at night and have all of the ingredients to make a homemade meal, then bravo!
Lets face it. Although none of had a smart phone 10 years ago we can’t imagine a life without it now. Our urgency to check our email and social media is strong. If you can put your phone away for an hour and just exist then you are in a minority worth celebrating.
When I heard the term falling into a showhole I didn’t think it was really possible until it happened. Three days and 7 seasons of New Girl later, I get it. Not binging a show on Netflix or Hulu dererves all the praise hands in recognition for your extreme patience!
Dry shampoo was a gift from God straight to women. Whether you are trying to keep your color fresh or you really just have no time, no judgement here. But, we all know that moment when we get up and realize that dry shampoo isn’t going to cut it and pony tail isn’t practical. You know what you have to do and you need a whole extra hour to wash, dry and style. Your time management and hygiene skills should be commended.
When I got married my husband was appalled at my snooze button usage. But, I championed on and turned him to snoozer. But, now that we both use the snooze button when we have both have to get up the dueling snooze alarms are a no go. Only using that button once deserves a high five.
I saw a meme recently that said why is it that every time I ask my kids to clean they ask who is coming over. Yeah. I am pretty guilty of that. So, when I went to town cleaning last week and my teen came home and dropped her jaw. Recognition might have gone over a little easier than her utter shock.
Ok my Lula Roe lovers, we have determined that leggings are indeed pants but let’s face it beyond their buttery softness we really like them for the fact that they are essentially yoga pants that are acceptable to wear outside the gym. They are tight and soft and we don’t have to button them. I am with you. I feel like they “get” me. But, if I am forced to wear pants that you to have a full blown cardio session to actually fasten then you better believe that I want an award!
Know of an adulting task that needs to be awarded? Let me know and it may make the next edition of Excellence in Adulting!
