Vent. This is your warning. I'm whiny.

I'm so aggravated tonight. I hate when I feel like this, all jumbled up and I can't get straightened out. I am so stressed out. I have a million thousandy things to do, but I have been up since 4:30 AM since this is my day to open at work, so now at 9:20 pm I am utterly and absolutely exhausted. House, trashed. Blog, neglected. Kids, on my nerves. Baby Daddy, blah.

At least when I'm at work there is eventually an end. Time comes to close, and then you clean up and do your shit and go home. Here there is never an end. Something always needs to be done. And I don't sit down to relax or blog or whatever until "everything is done". Well, everything being done is a figment of my imagination. It's never gonna happen.

I have to come up with something. Some kind of schedule, some kind of organization. I wake up at 6:30, and Tater leaves for school and is gone from 7:30-11:45, so it's just me and the Bean. Tater gets home around noon, and then I go into work @ 5pm, when Baby Daddy gets here. In there I have to fit cleaning, blogging, spending time with the boys, etc.. It doesn't sound like that much, but I know you mommies understand. There is just NEVER enough time. Not to mention the fact that even if I can manage to clean up the house before work, by the time I get home it's trashed again. WHAT do these people do for the 4.5 hours a night that I am gone??? I mean, seriously.

I just need some ideas. Come on ladies, help me get my shit straight. How do you guys manage family/work? Even if you don't work outside the home, any tips you have for managing all the crap at home would be great. I keep telling myself that I stayed home for a year, so yeah, it's going to take me awhile to get it together now that I'm working again, plus now I have two babies instead of one. So I'm trying to cut myself a little slack.

How do you bloggers stay organized? I am so overwhelmed with everything that is changing in my life, and while I am ecstatic that my blog is growing, and that more opportunities are being presented to me, I have to come up with a better way to organize and manage my time. Are there any tips, tricks, secrets you have learned along the way? What about your giveaways? Have any of you found a better way to organize them? I need lots of help tonight, guys :)

I love all of you and I thank you very much for reading my little bloggy blog, and for reading all the way to the end of this very stupid and boring rant. I'm going to bed. I will feel better in the morning. xoxox


  1. I know that all the other moms can relate, but I was JUST having this same conversation with my sister.

    It can be overwhelming to manage family, work, housework, family time, blog time, etc, but you have to work on what's most important first.

    As far as housework, I have OCD so I tend to over-do everything, but the best thing I can tell you to do, is maybe try setting a time for 15-30 minutes for each room, and then when you put the kids to bed, take your "me time".

    Keep your head up, you will get through this slump.

  3. I think being a mom and working is really tough. Housework and all the responsibilities can be tiring and just know you are not alone. Thank you for joining Mama's Little Nestwork! I am your 400th follower! Yippee! Have a great night!

  4. I dont work, my other half does, and he works from like 1 until 9 or 4 till 11, so its just me doing everything, even when he is home, its still ALL me. I have been feeling so overwhelmed as well. i dont know how people with 4 or 5 or 6 kids even find time to cook dinner. I keep saying i need to follow a schedule and keep to it, but that never works longer than a couple days.
    Im sure your doing a great job juggling everything, (we just dont hear that were doing a great job)
    So here im saying it

    and someday ur life will slow down, until then keep ur head held high and be strong!
