Easy Peasy

24 Jan

So here I was this morning completely overwhelmed, off schedule, and not feeling so hot. E was on the fussy side – probably teething or not feeling well either, not eating, not really playing either. It took me until nap time to get my head on straight. I made a little list to do and got in the shower. Completed half the list and realized I was feeling so overwhelmed that I literally laid down and did nothing. Then “BAM” it hit me. All day today I have been saying in my head, I need to do this, I need to do that, It’s been way too long since I vacuumed, I haven’t really cooked anything today, I’ve got nothing to blog about, I don’t feel like sewing, I haven’t cleaned out the storage and I said I would dedicate an hour to it, oh that’s right.. I haven’t done anything I’m supposed to do today..

Step 2 to my chaos. Did the few things on my list to make the house (besides my bedroom) look acceptable and decided that I am spreading my huge long list of things to do throughout the week instead of one entire day of list list list! Laundry does not have to be done in one day (although I can try), vacuuming can wait until tomorrow, cleaning up the bedroom can wait two days, cleaning the bathroom can wait three, but i’ll still do a little bit of the storage each day, and that will give me to craft.

B said something yesterday and I almost threw a pillow at his face. He said he thinks he could get everything done that needed to be done and still play his video games most of the day if he was a stay at home dad. Yes he does an amazing job of doing dishes, cooking, helping with E, and still playing video games but it’s TWO days TWO days!! I’d like to see him try a weeks worth of chores and take care of E. I don’t think he’d get half the things done he thinks he would 😉

Although half the time I wish he was. I miss him when he’s gone and I think he would be a great stay at home dad. It would be nice to have an extra hand all day but we would both have to have jobs from home, which means we would still really be working half the day. At least we could trade hours 😉

Well today I am crocheting (what’s new right!?), E should be up any minute, and B is home with a headache.. looks like today was a rough one for him too! I’m thinking leftovers for dinner or taco salads.. Easy peasy.

Love Always,

J

      Haha I don’t know why but it drives me crazy when he gets away with getting more done 😉 and yes leftovers are AMAZING!
