My alarm goes off at 5am each morning so I can supposedly “write a blog post” but that, more often than not, turns into me just reading my favourite blogs from Baby Mac and Kirsten and Co.
I was all cranky yesterday and beating myself up about the mess I am in at the moment. I think to myself all of the time “no one else ends up in a mess like this”. I live all the way up here in BFN (Bum F*#k Nowhere) in my own little world and think every other person on this planet has their shit together. Because I don’t visit other friends houses all that often I have this image in my mind that everybody else lives in a house that resembles an image from the Country Style Magazine! I know it is ridiculous but I keep beating myself up. This mess makes me so cranky and I think I can get it all sorted in one day. It just doesn’t happen like that.
I have just returned from a couple of weeks away….. of course things are in a mess. On Monday I couldn’t see the floor of my laundry, I thought that would be cleared by Monday afternoon and I would be on top of things. Fast forward to Wednesday and I still can’t see the floor, despite doing a million loads of washing each day.
And don’t even get me started on the boys rooms, I can’t even bare to go in there, I just get in an get the hell out as fast as possible. I think I am on a roll and then the 3 year old tells me “I am hunnnnnnnnngary”…. hello hungry, I am Mummy I reply. He doesn’t find this funny, but seriously – that kid is always so hungry at the most annoying times! Sometimes I just want to throw him the iPad just for an hours peace. I have been strong this week though, no iProducts for that boy, as he spent most of last week being babysat by the iPhone while we were at Mini School. Now he has to go cold turkey and the come down is not pretty!
So after reading Baby Macs blog post about her mess I do feel a little better and hope that by the end of this week I will be back on top of things again.
Today I think I will pretend that the Queen is visiting tomorrow and just go flat out like a crazy lady and pull it all together…. HA – as if that is going to happen. I need to stop wasting time and get my act together. I really do wish I was a naturally organised and tidy housekeeper, but I am not, and I need to stop kidding myself. I also need to stop comparing myself to others because seriously – NO ONE LIVES IN THAT COUNTRY STYLE HOUSE…. well not all of the time anyway! Actually maybe they do but HOW DO THEY DO IT?
I feel like I have two million and one things that need doing them. So I need to stop bitching about it and just start DOING. Wish me luck. Do you have any tips for me? Anyone who is having a birthday at the moment – feel free to chime in – because I know you can help me…..you are a Virgo after all.
I am off to get my inner Virgo on and get this party started……lets go people.
