Friday freak out

I like to think I'm usually a pretty happy, positive blogger.  Except for the occasional Charter rant of course.  But I'm here to tell you that I have bad days.  I get cranky.  I get annoyed.  I have pms (yes, I said pms, get over it).  And I freak out.

Today's freak out started when Kyla and I were hanging out this morning and I looked around and thought to myself "What the heck happened to my house?"

As you all know, we're finishing our basement so that's a huge mess right now.  I will be so happy when I no longer have dry wall dust making it's way upstairs.  The whole basement project stresses me out.  But to go along with that, I cannot for the life of me keep this house clean.  We only have one kid and she can't even walk yet so I can't blame her.  I swear it's clean one day and a complete disaster the next day.

And remember when I said we were getting rid of our spare bed so we could make that room into a toy room?  Well, we took the bed apart.

We are taking it to my parents house because we don't really have room in our basement.  They have to reorganize some stuff in their house before they take it.  So here it sits.

And the rest of the toy room?

My unorganized Thirty-One stuff!  Oh, this stresses me out too.  We need a desk so bad!

Let me add it to my "things we need/want" list.  And I'll add that list to all my other lists.  My obsession for making lists is getting a little out of control.  The problem?  The lists are getting longer instead of shorter.  And the number of lists keeps increasing.  And I start doing one thing on one list and while doing that, I start doing something else on another list.  I'll be in the middle of doing dishes and remember that I need to send an email about Thirty-One so I'll go get the laptop and on my way I see some coupons that I forgot to clip so I go grab the scissors and then remember that I didn't finish the dishes.  This is not an exaggeration.  And I wonder why my lists aren't getting done.

To clean list, Thirty-One to do list, Basement list, Christmas gift list, Stores I need to go to list, Things I need to buy at each of those stores list, Grocery list.  And the things we need/want list.

So what am I going to do about all of this unorganized mess?  Escape it!  At least for a day.  Tomorrow we're going to get dressed up, have a good time and enjoy some great family at my cousin's wedding.  And since I know I'm not pregnant, this Momma is going to down have a glass of wine.  Or two.

Maybe I'll worry about it on Sunday.

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Girl get down with a few glasses of wine sounds like you deserve some. Just think when the basement is done you can chuck all the toys downstairs. My little one has a toy room and it has been a saving grace. And girl PMS must be going around cuz this house has it to...lol

  2. Amy, you sound so much like me, especially since we have similar things going on...basement work, Thirty-One, kids,...

    I will give you some great advice that I wish I would have started much sooner, make office hours for your Thirty-One work & STICK TO THEM! :) (I have sample schedules if you want to ever see them.)

  3. If it makes you feel better my entire house currently looks waaaay worse than your toy room LOL. Moving sucks! ;-) I can't wait to see your toy room when it's finished...and the basement....it's going to be so nice I'm sure--and worth all the headache!
