So, I have been feeling lately that I just cannot get anything accomplished....I tend to start a task only to get sidetracked with something else...I know it sounds like motherhood!
But why can't I have it all together? Why can't my days go like this:
Wake up and have quiet time with God, Shower and get ready, Wake the kids cheerfully, Get them breakfast all while I move the laundry, swish clean all 3 toilets, manage the clutter, do the dishes, drink my coffee, work out, make the beds, check the backpacks..and all the while I am cheerful, full of undivided attention to each of my children and husband and the house is in perfect order.
Instead my days go like this:
Wake up groggy, lucky to get the shower..let alone brush my teeth, kids have breakfast all over the kitchen, tv is too loud "don't you kids remember no tv in the morning", flushing toilets the kids forgot, scrambling to get the kids out the door while tripping over everything on the kitchen floor, which I do not think has been scrubbed in nearly 5 weeks (it has been spot cleaned so do not call the Centers for Disease Control) and piling the dishes into an already overflowing sink.
Yikes, I keep saying I want clutter free living and order to our days and it is almost getting worse.
When I am not busy I get lazy and can't get everything done and when I am busy I am too busy to get everything done!
I need some serious motivation and a way to teach my family how to pitch in! Side note: my husband does a lot around the house and is by no means contributing to the chaos.
That is really all I have to say today! I guess that was just really on my mind. I would love to hear your comments on how you all keep it together!
