FED UP MOM!!!!
I CAN NOT CONCENTRATE!!!
My head is a shed!!
I have so many jobs and chores running around in my head that I can not do any of them with 100% commitment. I always said I wanted to live fast , but I kind of meant having sex on the beach on a tropical island and driving down the road on a Goldwing Motorbike. Not sipping luke warm coffee whilst feeding a baby a bottle and typing on line with the other hand.
Ok , so I have never been a domestic goddess, so yeah, my head tends to be elsewhere whilst cleaning and doing errands. But even when I am doing what I want, which sadly enough is writing on line. I am thinking of all those horrible jobs that I wish were not part of my life. I hate doing the ironing, washing and vacuuming.
Don't get me wrong I am a mum of four children and I love every inch of them. But my God they can make some noise. And mess.
I try and do my work on line whilst the oldest are at school. But that only gives me two hours as I have to sort the baby out. Then the half day nursery child comes home, causing havoc. It is not unknown for her to pour any liquids down the sink. Such as all my milk, soft drinks. She puts the dog biscuits in their water. You have got to have eyes in the back of your head and every where else!
Then it suddenly gets to home time for the other two. That is when the major noise kicks off. They start fighting. Wanting stuff. Shouting.
I am fed up of the screaming and noise level in this house. It really is beyond ridiculous how high pitched my middle daughter can get.
Friends knock. Dinner needs sorting. They go to bed time by 7 pm and then I get some peace. Except then the husband wants some time. I end up going to bed at midnight, exhausted and I do not remember exactly what I did all day. All I know is that I did not stop all day.
I get up at 6 am and start all over again. I will have some break in September when the nursery child goes to full time school. But by then the baby will be 12 months old and causing havoc in her place. Oh well, maybe he will be a superstar on his own. And the mid day run will have gone. That breaks up my day too much!!
So between the house,children, dogs, jewellery making, school runs,gardening, and on line work, I really could do with out sleeping. How about you?
