Well, it’s time for my meltdown, right on schedule. I’m feeling overwhelmed right now.
My house is dirty. And cluttered. But we are so busy, so overworked, so exhausted, that it isn’t top priority. But I think we all know that coming home to a dirty/messy house makes you feel not great. Molly from My Happy House posted her bedroom (post-baby, showing how Cam fits in there!) and that set me off. It was SO NEAT AND CLEAN. It wasn’t cluttered with a billion things. I want that. I want NO CLUTTER. I need to throw things out. It’s just finding the time/energy.
I got two days off in April. Big Daddy too. I feel like kicking people when they ask how my weekend was. (“I WORKED.”) Which, clearly, is not the appropriate response. Every once in a while I get to that point, where everything just pisses me off and I feel just infuriated by anyone who has it the tiniest bit easier than me. B goes to school all day Monday through Thursday, and works just about full time on top of that. I work full time and then Old Navy on the weekend. We both are on our feet and tired a lot of the time.
But that doesn’t make it ok for our house to smell like a pug’s anus.
Plus, with this circle of tired-ness and busy-ness, I neglect reading YOUR blogs.
Yes, I have many folders. Most are self explanatory. List C are blogs I basically stalk and just read, not comment. Lists A and B are my blogs I follow and love, with List A being more my “ohmygoshiwannameetyou” blog BFF’s. List A & B are the blogs I predominately comment on. Clearly, they’ve been neglected, because my time is in small segments where I go on and just read what I’m going to read and not comment on. Sometimes I’ll jump on a post from twitter, etc, but mostly that’s it.
I feel like I’m neglecting my blog friends and followers, and that feels NOT GOOD.
For the next week or two I’m going to probably spend more time reading/commenting (blogs) and cleaning/organizing (house). So hang in there with me. And thanks for sticking around even though I basically suck.
If anyone wants to come clean my house you are more than welcome to it. Thanks for witnessing my regularly scheduled meltdown.
