For some reason, recently I’ve been feeling overwhelmed with life. I don’t have any particular challenges I’m struggling with right now, so I’m not sure why I’ve been feeling this way. I have bad days and good days, but it seems that my bad days (the days when I’m stressed and depressed) are too frequent.
One thing in particular that has gotten me feeling stressed is housework. I am very lazy, and sooo behind on housework. There are just so many other things I’d rather be doing! Which is sad, because I do like it when the house is clean. And I like cleaning, but I don’t like it when the whole house is a wreck. I just get overwhelmed before I even start.
A few years ago I tried FlyLady, but I really didn’t care for her style. I can definitely see how it works for some people – either people who agree with her 100% or people who can take what works for them and ignore the rest. I finally quit FlyLady after it made me just feel more guilty.
Now, I think I need to get some sort of “home management” system to help me get started being a responsible housewife. I’ve been looking for something similar to FlyLady, but less militant and fewer emails! I found two others… HouseHoncho and Habithacker. I signed up for the latter, but it seems you cannot get a daily email reminder, that my best bet is to physically check the website each day. I guess that’s fine; I was just hoping for an email. It’s set up to start on the first of the month. I planned to start last Wednesday, but time got away from me and now it’s the 3rd… I guess I have some catching up to do. (Hmm Day 2 is “Go Shopping”. I like it!)
Sigh. Ultimately I feel even too overwhelmed to start THIS. I just want to… actually I don’t know what I want. What I *should* do is go do some dishes so I can think. And maybe even come up with something for dinner. Or I could go take a nap since Savannah is napping right now. Yeah, that sounds really nice.
