Can we all agree that there are people in the world who make life entirely too complicated?

Life is already super hard. I am being serious. Every day there’s like fifty trillion things to do. Laundry. Pack lunches. Buy food. Drive people places. Work. Make dinner. Pay money for things. Give baths. It’s never ending.

Sometimes I think about all the things that I’ll do when I have free time but then I remember that there is no such thing as free time because it will never exist in the history of life.

That basket full of mismatched socks that has been sitting on top of the dryer for five hundred years? They’ll probably fossilize at some point. What do you do, that’s life, man.

But then I go on Facebook and see people making their own bath bombs and building furniture out of wooden pallets and making recipes with nine-hundred and forty-seven ingredients them and I wonder…really?

Is there any way we as a society can just take a vote and maybe veto all of these things? Because I think they might be making me and my basket of fossilized socks look bad.

Not that I don’t love wooden pallets and bath bombs, because I do. Recipes with nine-hundred and forty-seven ingredients…not so much. What do you do, I am a simple girl.

I think it’s just the season of life I’m in now that allows for zero unnecessary complications. The other day I actually caught myself wondering if a business exists where you can hire someone to come over and do the whole hour of bath time, stories, hair brushing, and tucking in.

And then maybe fold a couple of baskets of laundry and put it away before they go home.

But then I realized that I was basically trying to hire someone to be a parent. Whoopsies.

All is not lost. As luck would have it, sometimes the simplest things in life are the best, and these coconut raspberry Italian cream sodas are no exception. The kids and I love making our favorite flavors of soda – these are so pretty and are a fun weekend treat.
