I am still sleeping way too much, I know it is an avoidance tactic. Could it be more obvious? haha
What am I avoiding? hmmm, that's not as obvious. Let's see, housework, talking animals for the 50th time,
exercise, cooking. I was just not cut out for the life of a housekeeper. Stay at home mom, yes, I can do that
when it involves playing with the kids, doing arts and crafts, reading books to them.

But I'm just lousy at housework, I can't keep up, I get annoyed and oh so bored and the husband is
really getting oh so frustrated with me. I am home all day, why can't I get some laundry done? Why is the
house a constant mess? It isn't fair, I feel guilty, fall into spiral of self-loathing and then do nothing.

I am so predictable.

At least I'm still creating, the only positive thing I am doing, apparently. Can you guess the theme?

The obvious solution? MOVE HERE! Seriously today I woke up with a migraine which I still have bits of. I still managed to fold and put away 4 loads of laundry, clean off a surface that has been consumed since we moved in, go through noah's entire play kitchen, reorganize it and clean it out (HUGE job, sadly, thank you Haba) and have time for a dip in the pool. Even with a headache. Seriously life here is just so much more functional. Please come!

Sorry, Nicki, but Jane is NOT moving to Texas. If I have any say, she's not moving to that other place either. ;)

I am a terrible housekeeper as well. I blame my schedule but that is only part of it. Truthfully, I didn't feel like I could pull my life together until I started school because it was something just for me. I find that structure helps. Being home every morning now with the children at school (glorious school!) has been a real motivator. I can clean without interruption and it will stay clean the rest of the day.

Hope to see you guys Friday!
