Why is it that life doesn't come with a hand book, where is "Are you there god, its me Margaret" for grown ups. Why hasn't someone realized that some of us have a slower learning curve and its harder for us. Is it that some people are just natural at life, while the rest of us are flailing our way through it.
I find having a three story house overwhelming, like it is a never ending cycle of cleaning and picking up. I found it so overwhelming that it was just easier to not do anything. If I just stayed on the couch and ignored everything it would all go away. Now I know there are no fairies or elves that are going to come and do all the work for me. I know that ignoring everything is not the answer, but sometimes it just feels so right. I know its not fair to those around me when I get in one of these funks, but its hard to jump over those mental hurdles.
I have decided to clean just one thing a day, I can handle one thing a day that's not too much. Not the everyday stuff, but the extra stuff like bathrooms and dusting. And to my surprise I ended up doing two things today, both the tub and the shower. I feel like that a good start...
I still wish that there was a book telling me what to do, so when I feel overwhelmed I can use it as a reference guide. Maybe this book will have pop out Xanax for those really bad days, would I be rich if I wrote such a book?
Well at least my shower is milldew free... for now
