Im so tired. The usual houswork, dc, work and life in general.

I need to get into a better routine with my house. I seem to spend one day a week completly gutting the house and the rest just ignoring it.

Ive had a cold for about 3 weeks. Because i feel like i dont get a minute for myself and not enough sleep. I look like shit and feel like shit ! Constantly.

I feel the same, feel like I've let myself go especially because I'm 33 weeks pregnant.

I find one day I'll get the house up together and everything will just flow then the next day I've run out of energy and it all goes tits up!

I can't seem to get an even keel

Same ! I keep my pots in the sink and just wash them when needed. I have accepted that is where they live now. Hahaha. Can't seem to put washing away either and piles building up. Feel pretty ineffective right now. Just tired and sad every evening so can't face housework. But yeah then I'll have one afternoon whilst DD is at her Granny's where I blitz everything and then feel great. Next morning it's all gone to shit again as soon as breakfast is done. I often feel like "if it's just me looking at the dishes and judging myself then I may as well leave them anyway" areerg.

Yes. Every day for the last seven years. I take vits, don't drink alcohol, eat well and go to the gym. Blood tests are all fine, it's just long term single parenthood.

Work, school and the dc's come first. Housework is done when I have the energy.

nancy I thought my days were numbered last week because I thought I was going to be smothered by the huge clean laundry pile on my bed while I slept grin.

Oh yes! Also having blood tests but suspect it's just busy life. Hurt my back putting the Xmas decs back in the loft. Tests showed and infection somewhere - didn't even register that I wasn't well, that's how shit it is.

Sometimes having to empty the bin again makes me want to weep.

Still better than being married to a twat. wink

I've found a couple of lazy ways to be more organised so im not running round like an idiot. (Could do with a dozen more)

Got dc some new storage boxes. Pink and blue so the know whos whos.

And last night when i finished work we had sausage, veg, mash an yorkies. I had a soak while the sausages were cooking. And the veg and mash was micro smile DC laid the table an promised not to get any toys shit out because i promised to play monopoly after tea.
