Things are just
a tad bit crazy around here.
No matter how hard I try to get it all done, it just doesn't happen. I have considered becoming an octopus. Surely I could get accomplish everything if I had 8 arms. I have also considered adding 4 hours to each weekday (2 hours to clean/work/organize and 2 hours of extra sleep). Since neither of these two things are possible, I am taking suggestions. You see, my only option right now is to get up even earlier...or stay up later. I already start my day before 6 am. It is cruel to wake up and see a 5 staring back at me. I just don't think I could handle seeing a 4. And staying up later? I've tried. It just doesn't happen.
Earlier today I spoke with a good friend for some advice on my current situation. She quickly pointed out that my children and I have only 7 weeks left of school. That is a HUGE plus. Then she told me to "let it go." Ummmm. Let what go? "Let it all go." Well, that is just impossible. BUT, I am going to try and stop stressing over the little stuff. I can assure you that my husband will be happier if I do this...he might be a little bit irritated by my complaining and OCD.
*It is (now) ok to leave a cup or two in the sink over night.
*It is (now) ok to let M, A, and C stay up a few extra minutes so that we can spend more time outside.
*It is (now) ok to get behind on the laundry (well, this has always been the case).
*It is ok that my laundry room is a disaster. In fact, it is going to stay this way for at least 7 more weeks.
*It is (now) ok to say "NO" when we don't need or want to do something.
these are the most important of all!
