What have I done the past couple of days? Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Oh wait, that’s right…nuuuuuuuhhhh thing.
I had high hopes for this week too. Really high hopes. Over the moon high hopes. Rock my world high hopes. And yet, nothing.
Jake is working swings this week for training. “If I tell you I’d have to kill you” training. I love the swing shift. Doesn’t leave until 2:30 in the afternoon and gets home around 9ish. LOVE. IT. Well, before this week I loved it. Now I kinda hate it. It has disrupted MY swing of things. While I thought it would give us good time together as a family during the day, it hasn’t. It’s been the opposite actually. Jake and I sleep in. Get up mid morning, groggy, annoyed, the boys demanding to be fed….the nerve. 🙄 Then Owen wakes up, my good little late sleeper he is. ♥ I go upstairs to feed him and lay back down b/c I am THAT tired. I swear, the mornings I sleep in, I am MORE tired througout the day. Doesn’t make sense. Anyway, I end up getting caught by someone, usually a high pitched someone who screams “MOMMY IS SWEEPIN AGAIN!!” Rat. The day goes on like this…boring, annoying, feeding kids, wiping noses and butts, watching Jake walk around in a daze b/c he HATES being awake. Unless of course it’s after midnight, then he hates being asleep. Naturally.
The evenings are especially frustrating b/c that is when the kids start getting bratty and hard to manage. The time of day that Jake usually is home by, to give me some relief. The time of day I have no patience for. Also, I’ve been napping when they nap, which means I don’t prepare dinner. Which means we’ve been eating like frat boys this week. 😯
What were my high hopes for this week??
- Laundry. All the laundry done. What do I have instead? More laundry. *sigh*
- organizing every.single.room. Yeah, that’s not done either.
- painting the rest of the kitchen, living room, and boys’ rooms. You guessed it. Not done.
- not being on the computer this week. What do I do when I’m overwhelmed and stressed? Yep. This.
- prepare lots of yummy dinners with all the food in the kitchen. Problem is, I need to plan them. And I didn’t do that. I always fall behind when I don’t plan dinners ahead. 😕
Soooo, that has been my week. What am I doing about it? Making a HUGE to-do list for the weekend since Monday is a down day for the base. Family Appreciation or some such nonsense. 😆
So you don’t think I’m completely worthless, I did manage to do a few things. The boys all have nicely organized and cleaned up rooms with their quilts on the walls. Specially made quilts that I don’t want them using until they are older. I cleaned out our big storage room upstairs b/c I plan on converting it into an office for me. I cannot think clearly enough to do the bills or anything else with the boys around. Just can’t. Which is why I’m totally behind on all that jazz as well. I’m sinkin’ here people. I’m tellin’ ya!
I’ll keep ya posted on the rest of must do’s. Pray for me people. Pray hard. 😆
