Every once in a blue moon I feel as if my house has just simple exploded. There is an overwhelming sense of chaos and my TODO list is on more like a collection of dusty memories.
Things just feel like they are not getting done. There are a number of reasons why this happens.
- I say yes too many times to too many things.
- I have too much stuff.
- I am not getting enough sleep.
- I am not getting enough exercise.
Sleep is the biggest one. When I don’t sleep everything goes to the dog house. Wait, it is worse than that, I have seen the inside of our dog’s house and it is actually rather neat. My house is a shipwreck when I don’t get enough sleep.
It drives me bonkers. I mean I have such high standards because my mom’s house is alway neat. It has zilch on clutter, is always dusted and is vacuumed more often than most folks brush their teeth.
How on earth did she manage with two babies and a dog with a husband deployed while living 1000 miles away from her family? It baffles me.
What is a tired momma to do?
Today I am just going to do my very best and my dirty dozen and add three simple tasks.
Without further sleepless rambling:
Simple Daily Challenge – Three Simple Tasks
- Dust the Living Room- not obsessively just make it look nice.
- Sweep the Kitchen Floor
- Wipe down the mirrors and bathroom sinks.
Have a super simple day and if you can take a nap. If I even see one tiny opportunity for a nap today I am grabbing it and running.
What are you bare necessities? How do you manage when you do not get enough sleep?
