Needing something

7:17 PM

I know you're supposed to get to the point in life where you want for nothing. When what you have in that moment is enough. I often thought of that to be material or financial. I never had a reason to think otherwise. I've never been one to need a lot of "stuff."  I don't care about designer labels. And as long as my clothes are clean (I'm supposed to do laundry? Oh) I'm in a good place. Financial stability is a huge trigger for me, if I don't feel secure financially I STRESS THE HELL OUT.  I'm ok there.

But as with most things when you change one part of a system it affects others. 

Time. I'm low on time. There are 24 hours in a day. I could use about 33. I think 33 could do it. 

I feel like I'm always rushing. Always. I'm grabbing dinner on the way home more often than I'd like. I feel like I haven't been spending enough time with my vacuum. (I enjoy vacuuming and we have a dog and I like it clean). 

After cleaning the kitchen with a fury on Friday night, eating almost no dinner, and apparently looking about twelve shades of crazy Jethro gave me a sit down. We're going to handle household duties differently so I don't have to "sprint" all weekend. And I'm supposed to look like a normal person or something. I'm working on that. Lol. 

Here's the part where old me would chide myself for not asking for help. But nope. I don't have time for that.

  1. It's great that Jethro sat you down for an intervention! It's so easy for women to work themselves into the ground...our default is to take care of everyone else first. I'm staring at my grungy cat-hair coated carpet right now...I love a clean house but on my own terms...if that makes any sense. I wanna clean when I want to clean; i can't seem to follow a set schedule. Hope you were safely out of the path of that Tornado!!
