One of those days......(or weeks?)

I've been wanting to blog for days now, but I can't decide what to share -- my life has been consumed by one gigantic stress that I might not want to write about and remember. Maybe I'll come back to it if I decide to share. But, anyway, this is the state of my house:

*dishes piled high in my sink and on my counter (I hate washing dishes by hand!)
*laundry on the floor by my washer/dryer, in the dryer, in the laundry baskets
*me - in my pajamas STILL!
*boxes of photos piled on my stove because I moved them from my dining table (it's not like I'll be using the stove a whole lot, right?)
*separate piles of projects stacked on my desk, some of which need to be done NOW!
*piles of clean bedding, blankets, etc. in my guest room
*stain spilled all over my front porch from last week's "stain the front porch railings" project
(We were supposed to power-wash it and paint afterwards, but that hasn't happened yet due to previously mentioned stress and Brad's newly sprained ankle.)
*clover-filled grass in my yard which indicates it needs mowed, but now it's raining
*box of family reunion stuff next to desk which constantly reminds me I'm supposed to be sending out reminders, buying prizes, and putting together the family pedigree wall charts to display at this year's reunion
*Need I go on?

This is how I'm feeling today - blah! Too much to do, no energy to do it, and disgusted with the mess around me. Now, I've vented, so maybe I can get on with my day.

I've totally been there (a lot of times). I usually start feeling better when I make myself get up and get to work. I'm like you, the more work I have to do, the less I feel like doing it. Good luck. I know you can do it!

I'm totally feeling you with the dishes piling up and piles and piles of dirty laundry. I keep trying to bribe my children to load and unload the dishwasher. I just don't have the stomach or energy to do it!!! Why are you so stressed? Planning for a family reunion is way more stress than I'd ever want to deal with. Let me know if there is anything I can do from here to help ease your burden. Seriously.

If I were there you know I would wash those dishes and clean those clothes. I get in those ruts some days. I love havingthree little dish washers around here. It makes life so much easier. Please take a deep breath and relax just for an hour or two. If you need to talk please call me and maybe I can help.910-366-3149!!Love You!!

I'm with Deana. While that may not get you dishes done, hopefully it helps to know we love you! When I get bogged down I usually find some way to make it a competition even if it is only against the clock, and of course, the right music doesn't hurt either! Sometimes it is uplifting and sometimes it's way crazy. My favorite crazy is 'Put me in Coach, I'm ready to play'

Thanks for letting me know that everyone has some of those days. I hope it's much better by now.
