Is it seriously already Tuesday? The weekend is really already over? I feel like I had a to do list a mile long this weekend, but only got some of it done. Thus is life with a 6 month old, I suppose! I sat down Friday and made out a list what unwanted to get accomplished.
Vacuum Shampoo carpet spots (thank you Dave for tracking mud in )
- Shampoo sofa
- Sweep & Mop entry/pantry/kitchen/master bath
- clean master shower/tub
- put away clean laundry
- wash bath mats
- change litter box (husband’s job)
deep clean refrigerator PT clothes/regular clothes laundry Grocery shop Put away groceries Shop for new gym bag
- clean stove top
- Baby clothes/linen laundry
I did get some of it done at least. The weekends are the easiest to get things done because I can work on something and have my husband on baby duty. In the week I do my best, but it usually takes at least twice as long to finish things. When she was still napping without resisting, it was so much easier. I could set up the monitor where ever she was napping and get a few things done without interruption.
I think the problem is that i need to reprogram my brain a little bit, so to speak. I need to be less hard on myself and cut myself a little slack. Just because I cannot get everything done at once doesn’t mean I will not be able to accomplish it. I need to not let it drive me crazy. I got a few things done yesterday- I decided since I only have small spurts of time to get things done I would split up putting the laundry away. I sort the laundry as it comes out of the dryer to save time when putting it away, so I put away the basket with my husband’s clothes and the baby’s clothes away yesterday. I also did some more carpet shampooing, dishes and laundry.
I feel better about the whole thing today. I got things done yesterday, cooked a yummy dinner and spent a few hours after baby was in bed playing Call of Duty with my husband. Today I hope to do the same and just enjoy my day with my baby.
