It's weird. I go through spurts where I'm really on a roll. Where I get a ton of things done. The house is
I'm not one of those people who think that everything has to be perfect all the time. I mean, surely I would've liked it if my little "routine" from when the condo was for sale had stuck and I always had a beautiful, sparkly clean home but, let's face it, with two kiddos that just isn't going to happen. I just want some semblance of cleanliness. I take it as a bad sign when Beanie cleans up her playroom and thinks cleaning up her dishes means throwing them in her kitchen sink. LOL.
I keep telling myself if only I get into a routine. If only the house was totally spotless and then I could just maintain. If only there were about six more hours in each day. (But who am I kidding, those six hours would be full of things to do too.)
We've had some curve balls thrown our way lately. The thrush - again. Bubby has been going through a growth spurt. He was upset, fussy and having yucky diapers again late last week and over the weekend.
Glenn has mentioned a couple times that maybe it would be a good idea to see if we could get a housekeeper to come once a week or every other week or something. I know he's not saying, "Boy, you sure do a shitty job around the house so we'd better get some help." He's trying to come up with something to help, but I can't help but hear the former. And with trying to save money right now, I just can't see ponying up the dough for a housekeeper just because I can't seem to get my junk together. Must be part of my super mom I-must-do-it-all complex.
But, today we have absolutely no plans. It's unseasonably cool out right now, almost feels like an Autumn morning. I'm motivated. A little. I do know that I feel better with a tidy, uncluttered house. It clears my head. You would think the end result would be enough to catapult me to getting there, but no such luck. Going to try and make a little dent in it today.
So, I'm signing off before I find a million other things to check on the computer....
Wish me luck!
