life is weighing me down, yo.

hold on, i have to get the toddler down from standing on the tv stand...be right back.
when we got closer to close of our house i had this vision of how we would move in and all of the painting would be already done and every other dream i had (or at least could afford at the moment) decorating wise would be done in the first week. hold on while i point and laugh at my plans - are you kidding me? so the downstairs is in good shape as long as you don't peek into my garage and your willing to over look the fact that i purchased paint for this level but am no where near ready to start that caliber of a project.
upstairs the girls have a half paint job finished room, the one coat expensive paint i bought didn't come close to the coverage promised and i got major side eyed when i talked about rushing out to get more paint to finish. so it sits with frog tape up still and no outlet covers begging for one last coat.
so  many  boxes, still need to be unpacked and we just finally got a working dryer yesterday (blah blah, we bought a new set, was told it was electric - it was gas, bought a temp dryer for $50 on cl it didn't work, got in a fight with the hubs and told him it was me or the dryer and he ran to best buy and got us a new one).
school started the week we moved - so naturally i totally ignored it trying to to make eye contact with my calculator or text books till the next monday when i found myself totally behind, ugh!
i have a 97% full dvr because i don't have time to watch anything between driving back and forth to preschool, hunting down emergency blankets for a comfort kit, and dealing with a toddler who has found her assertiveness and daredevil side at the exact same time.
oh my lordy, do i sound whiny or what? basically i love my life but hold me.
this mama is buried and feeling burnt out big time. how do i find the balance? how do i fight the urge to lock my whiny kids in the closet? i know it will come, i just need it to hurry up.
love, me.

I feel the same way! We have been in our house for over 2 years and it still isn't totally decorated! Ah! And I only have ONE kid. Feeling for you and wishing you a good babysitter to give you a day by yourself!

I have no good words of wisdom other than to tell you that one day...box by box...it will feel a little better and everything will find it's "place" and you won't feel so all over the place! We've lived in our house for almost 6 years and some walls are still bare because I can't decide what to do...painting was a whole nother story....I'm still burnt out from it. I think next time i'll hire someone to do it, I don't care what it costs! I agree with Chelsea - if you could have a day at home alone to your self to get oranized....that always make s huge difference for me!
