So Many Things, So Little Time

Ever feel like no matter how hard you try, you end up being further behind than ever before? The last few months, I've been trying to get my life in order - financially and otherwise. The financial stuff is going okay. The otherwise is, well, running in place.

I have managed to make more of an effort at housekeeping in general. I have always been good about the laundry and dishes, paying bills, shopping, cooking, etc. It's the day to day stuff that bores me.

I don't mind vacuuming - in fact I do that every evening. And, I don't mind swishing the toilets clean when needed. It's scrubbing the sinks, tubs, and mopping that make me shiver.

Also, the 'Evil Twin and I haven't been getting along - not anything bad - it's just that that doesn't help my attitude any. We've had our fair share (0r more) of peaks and valleys and I'm sure we'll bicker and then - voila! - we'll be okay again.

There's something I've had on my mind, something that is really an exciting prospect in my opinion and he doesn't really want to discuss it. I find more and more that unless the conversation runs in his interests, he doesn't much care to participate. That makes me sad.

I got a lot accomplished today (not that anyone will pat me on the back for it - or even notice), and I'm going to bed fairly early tonight as well. I'm going to try to make it up to watch "Medium", but I'll be watching while lounging in bed, so I may make it an hour, I may not.

It's been one of them days, ya know?


  1. I feel ya sister. I've got that going on lately too. Some sunshine would do us good huh? Hang in there!

  2. I sometimes get "down" when thedaughter (28 yrs old) gets mad at me because I didn't compliment something she has done, i.e., dishes or vacuum or cook a meal or laundry. Note: never a combination of these either. I can't get her to understand that no one ever complimented me for doing the "chores" necessary in raising a family...and the husband.

    Relax...enjoy Medium and await the new perspective tomorrow. Kinda like Scarlett O'Hara!! lol

  3. Yep.

    It also slays me how everything can be going well in a dozen different areas: home life, check; long-term plans, check; house clean, check.. and then something goes wrong in one area (say, just for hypothetical's sake, work) and everything suddenly sucks.


  4. {{HUGS}} Just wait for Spring and all that sunlight and I'm sure you will feel much better.

  5. It has been one of those days all month for me!

    Maybe tomorrow will be better for you.Enjoy watching Medium and get plenty of rest tonight girl.

  6. I'll mop for you if you'll dust for me. God I hate to dust.

    As for the rough patches - they suck. Here's hoping things smooth out soon.

  7. Man, you vacuum every night?? I enjoy it and only do it once a week. Though I AM stepping up and trying for twice this week. *pats self and you on back*

  8. You do all of that EVERY DAY?

    Oh. My. God.

    I was thrilled that I threw a load of clothes in the wash today. Lord knows when I'll dry them.

  9. I've thought really hard about this and there isn't one speck of housecleaning I like to do. Not one speck. Didn't used to be that way, but this round of clinical depression has been pretty much like when Holly Hunter finds out she's barren in "Raising Arizona" (remember the picture of her surrounded by dirty laundry).

    Hope things get to going better for both of us.
