There is nothing like starting out the day with a little ranting. I guess that would be type ranting if there is such a thing.
What is with my house?
I can't for the life of me keep it clean and it is driving me crazy. I have heard somewhere that your house is a reflection of yourself and boy is that ringing true for me. I look around and I see piles of "stuff" everywhere. This is what my brain feels like; Piles of stuff blocking the way of progress.Why doesn't everything have a home? Why is the stuff that does have a home out where I can see it not in its designated spot? And why do I have all of this other stuff? Who keeps messing things up? One thing that I CANNOT keep up on is the mail. I officially want the mail to stop. Nothing ever comes in the mail that is good anyway. Its always bills and bills and junk mail. I hate junk mail. Save a tree already by not printing some lame junk mail! Freak! Another issue is all the papers that my kids bring home from school. Enough already! We are not going to sign up for craft karate and lacrosse cooking. I don't care what the stupid PTA is doing and who the students of the month are. Again - save a tree. I grew up in a clutter free house. A clean one for that matter and I ought to know since I spent most of my saturdays as a kid cleaning it. What is wrong with me? It is so overwhelming that I sort of "shut-down" and have to leave the room. Is this ADD? I can't accomplish anything and see something through to the end except maybe my dishes. I really am starting to question my sanity. I used to be such an organized person. Of course I guess it is pretty easy to be organized when its just you and no kids or anything that needs to be taken care of. I might be losing my mind. Who knows. All that I know is this morning I have accomplished nothing except getting my kids to school and feeding my baby. I am dressed and my teeth are brushed but come on! Lurking in the kitchen are canned goods that need to be put away, cheerios that need to be swept, a sink of dirty dishes to do, a HUGE pile of mail to sort through, a stack of grocery sacks to put away, a vacuum, red potatoes from my Mom, a full garbage can and thats just off the top of my head! I can't even talk about how bad the basement is right now. My kids are mess makers. I seriously am going to pick everything up that they won't pick up and put it away or give it away. I wonder who is boss here sometimes. I don't know that I feel any better but it doesn't matter if I do or not. I have to keep moving and at least then I will feel like I am getting something done.
