I NEED to organise...

Do you ever feel like if you could just get the house sorted, and a plan for your future sorted, life would run on rails???

Whenevr I feel overwhelmed, I have this feverish urge to just "clear a path" through the chaos that is my life. I feel like that at the moment, though I'm seriously suffering from lethargy too...

I'm going to REALLY put this out there and say, "Look at the state my house has gotten into" over the past week... This is partly due to being in and out a lot. Partly due to starting a cleaning process one day, but not finishing it, and so things end up looking twice as bad as before (the pile of dirty clothes that was just by the loungeroom door has since been strewn all over the loungeroom), and partly because I cannot be fagged dealing with it until Dave is home to support me in facing it (good to have an ally in the war against household chaos)...

I'm vowing right now, to report back here during or after the weekend with photos of a pristine house!!!

I'm feeling "chaotic" because I'm waiting for Dave to finish up at Swinburne, and for us to start on the new era in our life. I want to study, but I don't know how that will fit in. I'm feeling very unfocused, and I think Dave is feeling the same way, and our house is reflecting it...

oh your house doesn't look so bad... well ok it is a bit messy but mine is worse! I just walked out and left it today which means when we get home tomorrow arvo I will have to face it all then... arrgghh. But I am having a 'why bother' week when I clean up one bit and while I am doing in the twinados destory something else! arrrghhh!

Anyway sounds like you are all in a holding pattern waiting for your big changes to take place... I bet when that all happens you'll get your spark back, even if cleaning house isn't where your spark takes! ;)

Looks like my house most of the time LOL I wish I could find a cleaning fairy to come clean up my house!!

Yep me too, would love a cleaning fairy, as my house looks like this all the time too! I have closed Imogen's bedroom door so I don't have to be confronted with the mess LOL! You are not alone!

And I hear you re: waiting for Dave to finish up before your "new life" begins! I do this sort of thing all the time, but I try to remember that John Lennon song that goes "Life is what happens to you while your busy making other plans". And that other quote *sieze the day!*. Easier said than done though, particlarly if you are feeling lethargic. What time of your cycle are you? Second half?

I don't know, Jen, I'm not *obviously* cycling yet... I.e. I haven't had a period as yet...

Carpe Dium! (sp?) Yeah, you know, I tend to be like that, but not at the moment (actually not really since I had Bryn, tbh, LOL)...

Juniper said...

Duh! Of course you aren't cycling yet, you just had a baby! That is why you are lethargic sometimes - you *had a baby* and have 2 other small children! Hey, you have all the reasons in the world to be disorganised - unlike me....
