Topple Over

Pre-inked sponge painters. This is the forth time we've used these three and they are still going strong. Awesome deal.
Don't you wish you could sleep like this? Sleep through a cottage cheese covered, naked two year old with a sock in her mouth, chasing a screaming dog around with an empty diaper box?

I'm feeling unmotivated lately like the giant mound of things I should be getting done, has gotten so tall it is bound to topple over and crush me. I'm too lazy to buckle down and really figure out how to get it under control and too tired to run away so I pick at it. I handle a few things every day but the mound is growing faster than I pick. When I get like this there is too much tv watching and too much whining in my house. I need more inspiration and more organization. We are a happier family that way. Anybody out there have any brilliant organization plans? Not the fly lady. Her emails don't work for me. They just irritate me and don't motivate me to do anything. Maybe it's because she starts by having a shiny sink. A shiny sink just doesn't even come close to being on my priority list. I make a terrible fly baby.

It's a good thing I have a wild banshee two year old with the cutest chubby legs and a sweet little baby with that great baby smell. If I get crushed beneath the laundry I will still be grateful for chubby legs and the smell of clean babies.

It's okay to have times of laziness. Although, I've always thought you were anything BUT lazy. You are like mother of the year with all your great craft ideas and such! Hang in there.....you're doing awesome!!! Oh, and as for organization, you've been to my house and know that it is nothing but chaos all the time. So, I've got nothin' for ya on that. Sorry.

Oh my gosh I had never seen that site! And the socks are so cute! I'll have to add it to my post. Thanks!

PS Aren't 2 year olds fun? haha! The baby is so sweet-and I've always been amazed they can sleep through anything!

I don't think you're lazy! Having a new baby is a huge adjustment, it's usually at least 3 months before I start feeling even semi in control of things, and a good six months before I start to come out of the new-mom fog. Sorry I don't have any good organization tips. I think most of it is just reality of life with a newborn and a toddler, and accepting the reality that it's going to take away.

Who cares about organization? Enjoy your kids, they won't think about how messy your house is, just the time their cute mom spent with them. I am sorry you are feeling that way. I hate feeling like I am not in control of my lifeand house. Just keep picking and think in about 20 years, this to shall pass. Hang in there.

I don't have any great organization tips--I think you could teach me. But when I feel like you do, like I have for the last several months, I just try to keep moving all day. I tell myself that the little things I do accomplish really do make a difference and I make sure to give myself time to relax and unwind every day.

I was feeling just like this about a month ago. Good news, it passes, and the pile will shrink, really. My favorite organization tip is a daily routine with all the really important chores assigned to their own day. That way, you've got a "do-able" goal every morning that you can work towards.
