I'm so completely overwhelmed by the state of my house right now that I can't even begin cleaning it. Every single room is a toe up mess. I get these little bursts of energy and start tackling the hell, but then I realize how much of it there is and I get depressed and I sit down and start watching The Soup. I think I'm almost to the point that I'd like to burn my house down and start over again. I promise I'll save the cats.
We have guests coming on Saturday. Guests that are kinda important to our future. Ace is home today because of an ear infection and my allergies, which manifest in a killer headache and the inability to breathe, ARE KILLING ME. I'm volunteering at Ace's school tomorrow. He has Fridays off. If you've ever had a toddler, you know that it's really quite hard to clean around them. I have no idea what I'm going to do.
I used to have the cleanest house for miles. I used to have a calendar detailing what I was supposed to clean on what days. I could get my house sparkling clean in a matter of 4 hours. Now, I don't think I could get my guest bathroom sparkling clean in 4 hours. I'm so, so overwhelmed.
I'm gonna go have another glass of whiiiiine, take some Benadryl, and try to make my kitchen, living room, and guest bathroom look REALLY good. If those are at least done, I can face guests. If they want to go into any other room in the house, they may or may not an atomic elbow to the back of the head, our future be damned.
