Why does life have to be come complicated? It always seems like there are a million things that need to be done, issues at home, clothes to be washed, dished to be cleaned/put away, bottle to wash, diapers to change, a baby to take care of, and not a lot of hands to help.

Being a married woman I like to think things within our house are 50/50. However, I feel that some days it's more like 80/20. I was raised that the house is cleaned every-other week, sheets are changed weekly, your spouse is always there to help with whatever it might be, and I am really needing this person right now. I feel like am sinking & sinking FAST. My house is filthy, stuff everywhere (a lot of it is mine, some Owen's), clothes needing to be put away.

Here is how my day goes:

  • wake up between 5-6, whenever Owen wakes up

  • nurse Owen

  • change Owen's diaper

  • eat breakfast

  • get all of Owen's things together for daycare

  • shower

  • do hair, make-up, get clothes on

  • nurse Owen again

  • drop Owen off at daycare

  • go to work till 4

  • pick Owen up & go home

  • nurse Owen

  • cook dinner

  • nurse Owen

  • clean up kitchen, sometimes Tony cleans up

  • possibly nurse Owen AGAIN

  • put Owen down for the night

  • make bottles

  • wash bottle/pump parts

  • watch some TV or go to bed

  • nurse Owen 2-3 times throughout the night

  • Start it all over again

See, I have SO much to do & I am so freakin' tired. I don't know how much longer I can do this. I am physically worn out. This is the first semester I haven't been in college, but that is going to change come January when I plan on starting to work on my Ed.D.

I just want some help! So, if you are willing to come over to my house & help me, please call. :)

Well, I am off to lay on the couch, go make some bottles, & get ready for bed.

Maybe next time I will be in a better mood...

Here is a pic to brighten your/my day.
