Do you have those days, all too often for me, more like everyday, when you're running around all morning going, what am I doing?
You start by picking up the mess in the living room and so you carry the wads of tissues to the trash, there you decide you want to eat, so you open the dishwasher, so you put the dishes away. While putting some away, you run to check on the little one, that draws your attention to the clothes on the couch, you start to pick up things from there, hair clips, pieces of fabric, fix the cushions, pick up the dirty socks,etc. You go to put those away in the kids room which then you realize is a mess. Start picking up the books, and organizing them, you run to the computer to renew the late books, you get stuck on Facebook. You realize you need to start planting the beans and corn seeds, tomato seedlings need water. Let me make a note of it. Oh, I'm so hungry, go back to the kitchen and bang your shin on the open dishwasher. Damn it, I should find the time to go to yoga, it's been months.
Start putting dishes away, since you were already in the middle of it. Turn around, all food and breakfast stuff is left out, you decide to clean it up and make a cup of coffee. Water is boiling and you get stuff out. Continue to put the dishes away. Coffee is brewing. You walk over to put kids dishes in their shelf, food on floor, start sweeping. More hair clips. Go back to kids room. Oh those clothes are still out. Put those away, make bed. Put away more clothes. Those clothes are too small now in that drawer, let me take some out and put in a pile. Start going through kids clothes to organize. OH CRAP my coffee! Go back to make the coffee, it's cold. You make it, and re-heat it. Start putting away dishes, see kids mess in their kitchen set, start cleaning it up. Take things to other parts of house where they belong. Organize the kids shelves since legos, and finger puppets are all over floor. Now the books need to be put away and organized. Glance at clock- are you kidding me, it's 9 and I still haven't eaten in the 3 hours I've been up? Go back to kitchen, Oh that damn coffee is sitting in the microwave! Re-heat it. Dishes..... (oh and don't forget the laundry that's piling up and the load that you forgot in the washer from 2 days ago).
And so it goes on.
Anyone else feeling like this?
I feel like the Mad Hatter at time, then I feel normal, then I laugh, then I think this is just life!
Ok, well maybe it's just my life.
