Busy weekend ahead...

It's amazing to me that my house has not been condemned. Well, maybe it's not that bad, but it is pretty bad. I don't see how people keep a clean house constantly! I can't do it. There is laundry to be put away on the couch... laundry to be done on the kitchen floor (no laundry room, the kitchen floor is the closest place to separate before it heads down the hall)... both bathrooms need to be cleaned... let's not even talk about the last time the place was dusted... and once again I cannot see the actual counter in kitchen! Ugh! I have this overwhelming urge to put my fingers in my ears and starts singing (you know, like when someone's trying to tell you something you don't want to hear!). I know exactly what has caused this disaster to happen in my house... it is called life. I get up between 6:30 & 7... leave the house by 7:30 in order to get the kids to school by 8 (have I told you how much I love country living?)... go to work until I pick the kids up at 3... MW is reading camp... Tues is speech... Wed is church... Thurs is soccer.... then the weekend hits! Thursday nights is the only night that I get home by 3:30... then it's right out the door to soccer. I guess I could be like a couple of my friends and give up sleep so that I could maintain my house, but that doesn't sound appealing by any means... not to mention if I don't go to sleep by 10:15ish on a consistent basis I get complaints from those around me that I'm not a nice person... SOOOOOO... does anyone have some ideas for how I can manage my house, my job, my kids, the bills, the pets, church, etc. Oh and I do like to have friends... so occasionally I like to do things with them! Ugh! I SERIOUSLY NEED A WIFE~

I still haven't heard anything about my dad's job. I know he is sooo frustrated. Keep praying something comes up. He'll stay at the prison til it kills him... which is liable to happen since it is the jail we are talking about! Gah, that sounds bad... but since he started at the jail the stress really has done things to his normally healthy body.

Oh, and does anyone need a bunk bed? We have a set that we got when RT and I were separated... it is a futon on bottom and twin on top. It is from Sam's and we bought it from the woman who bought it from Sam's. It is just sitting in my entryway right now and needs a place to go! :)

Have a blessed weekend.... and if you know a solution to my housing dilemma, let me know!

Take it from someone whose child is grown - don't fret the house. All that house work will be there when the children are gone. Enjoy them while they are young and still want Mom around.
