I'm losing it. It's lost.

I have a lot going on right now and I'm trying to do too much and I'm losing it. So I made you this chart that describes why I suck at everything and can get nothing done. I wanted to write a whole post about it but I'm too stressed out and I have papers to grade and now my kids are fighting so I have to go.

Also - That purple box? The one down at the end all by itself? Yes. Pretty sure you all already know why it's at the bottom.

OHMYGOD. When was the last time I fed the dog? Wait. Where is the dog?!

I have to go. Sorry. Bye.

  1. THIS. At what point in life are we supposed to "get it"? 'Cause I missed the memo.....

  3. This is totally me. I'm hiding from my 2-year-old in the bathroom right now as I type this.

    1. Ditto. He's in the living room watching Jojo's circus and hopefully not killing the kitten.

  4. Oh friend. We so get it. Especially the paying of the bills. Oh man, if I had a dollar for every late fee I have paid I would be able to afford to pay the late fees! ;)-Ashley

  5. I think between this graphic and the graphic from http://www.home-ec101.com/clean-it/weekly-chore-schedule/ we have the yin and yang of house crap. I want to print it out and frame it and hang it somewhere.

  6. Please get out of my head. I swear I was just thinking this as I woke up (late) exhausted and started the day. I don't know that I'll ever "get it" but I keep trying! The alternative is not pretty. :D Hang in there and know we're all just doing the best we can with what we have.

  7. Change "My actual job that pays me money" to "Full time grad school so I can hopefully one day get a job that will pay me money", and you've pretty much just described my life. And now my two year old wants me to put back together a cracker that he broke in two.

  8. Box #3 doesn't even apply to me and I'm failing. :/

  9. The word "Sisyphean" should be synonymous with "Being a grown up." Poor poor grown ups and all the boulders they push to the tops of mountains over and over and over. I think of Sisyphus every time I enter my kitchen.

  10. I feel like this at least three times a week. But my wise mother-pastor-counselor-friend tells me this: Just cuz you're not great at everything always does not mean you are failing. Repeat this mantra as often as possible: "We're all just doing the best we can RIGHT NOW." If I didn't breathe deeply and repeat these words, like, hourly, I'd go nutso. Carry on, mamas! You're all doing a really good job, period.

  11. Fantastic. I think I do each of these at like 50%, except the part about the clean house which is maybe at 10%. I work full time and take 3 online courses. I am divorced so have to juggle kids back and forth. Some days I just want to find a nice dark cool cave and stay there for a week. (As long as I can also get wifi there.)

  12. Yes, this. Totally. And on top of this I have a disease that makes me feel like crap 24/7. UGH. No wonder I suck. (I never even get to the blue box, last one. So you are up on me. My poor husband)

  13. That's so true it's not even funny.

  14. Why do we feel bad about not being able to keep up with everything listed here? No one can do all that without falling down from exhaustion. At some point we (and I put myself first in line with that "we") need to either cut back somehow, delegate to kids what they can do, or just let the feelings go 'cause they aren't helping.

  15. My husband worked late last night and I forgot to make me dinner so I ate cold annie's mac off their plastic plates. BETTER THAN COOKING TWICE. I can't get anything done ever. If I am putting away laundry, they are dumping garbage cans on the floor. If I am taking out garbage they are emptying a closet. ETC.

  16. Sounds like my life. Exercising? That's funny.

  17. I think that this is EVERY mom's life! I'm lucky if I can even pull ONE box together and be decent at it.

  18. NO! You are not failing!!!! I thought this, over and over and over again for decades (I had 5 kids in 9 years). I had to pay babysitters to watch the kids just so I could clean a bathroom. I struggled and worried from the first I learned I was expecting #1 until #5 was let out into the 'real' world. (Wait, I still worry). I thought I was the biggest failure at this MOMMY thing. I was wrong. I have raised good, law abiding, civic minded and happy people. If you are worrying if you are feeding them well, you probably are. Are you snuggling enough? you are. Don't worry about laundry, It will NEVER be done, same with dishes, vacuuming, dusting.... There will be time for that later. YOU WILL SURVIVE.

  20. the thing I say over and over is...
    I am: Jack of all trades; Ace of none.
    Can't be good at everything all the time, but I can be sorta good at a few things some of the time. pppfftt!

  21. Also, THIS. I saw on fb just today...
    If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result, then what is the point of cleaning the house with children in it?

  22. You should mass market this. Women everywhere will buy them. It is so true.
