It's been crazy again...several weeks since I've posted. (So much so, that I started this last week & am just finishing this post on Sunday)

I'm trying to get on track, but it just seems like I take one step forward & 2 or 10 back. For example, I was doing great with doing a load of laundry a day (something from Flylady) & now it's just all piled up, again. It was so awesome to have one load done & put away each day. One problem is that Liam's dresser is broken & I need to go to IKEA, buy him a new one, get it put together, pull out the old one, go through the clothes & put the ones that fit into the new one. Sounds easy, right??? LOL!! Argh!

Then, a couple of weeks ago, the 3 month old dishwasher broke. Luckily it's under the 1 year warranty. However, we had someone come out & diagnosed it quickly. He had to order the part & then we waited. It came via UPS & I called to schedule the install of the piece.....only to find that we were supposed to receive TWO parts. Argh! Now we are waiting on the second part with no date as to when it will arrive. Not a happy free Wednesday was spent waiting for the repairman to come. (Side note: i had planned on trying the $27 mani/pedi at the nail place in Wal-mart). Soooooo....I've been having to wash ALL the dishes for meals. I really love having a dishwasher that works.

So, we have Fiesta at church today. I should take the boys up there, I should do laundry, I should wash the dishes in the sink, I should go for a walk, I should get up & shower.....BUT all I want to do is sleep or sit here on the couch & watch the boys play.

And, I forgot to add about the craziness with PTO....guess I need to make a separate post on!!!

Any advice for a mommy who is struggling right now to just keep up?

  1. Paper Plates! ;) We'd be happy to have the boys over if you need a break. I'm free Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday morning this week. You're doing a great job - hang in there! When it gets rough, just play a game of "Hide and Go Sleep". ;)
