My house is a serious mess. And here I sit, glued to a chair, unable to move. I need to do something.
I’ve had a serious lack of motivation this week. Surprisingly, I’ve also had a serious lack of sleep this week. I wonder if there is a correlation. I wonder…I wonder…Hmmmm…
If I had guts, I’d post pictures. Pictures of the mess. Bug Boy’s room (OMG HALP!), our bedroom (piles and piles of clothing. At least they are clean, right?). Dirty floors. The basement playroom (I just close the door and ignore it). I’m so overwhelmed I don’t know what to do first.
What I need is some sleep. A nap. A decent lunch. A walk outside. But here I sit.
I don’t feel so domesticky or goddessy. I feel blah.
The good news? First massage in over six weeks not cancelled by crappy weather or kids who feel crappy.
The bad news? My house looks the same way it did before I left to get the massage.
Here’s my action plan: Lunch, nap, shower, fold clothes, room rescues. I can do this. I can get it done. And when the kids get home from school, I can vacuum (because I can do that and watch them at the same time). I can make a quick, tasty dinner. The basement can wait until tomorrow. I can at least get the main rooms looking better.
Here we go…
