The Problem with Sitting Down...

Is that I can't manage to get myself motivated again.

Once I sit, I'm done.

But I can't stop myself from doing it.

I'm not sure if it's because I just finished a week of solo parenting, topped off by a very fun, but very busy weekend, but the past few days, once I get the girls in bed, I am spent. I sit down to catch my breath, get a drink, watch something I've DVRd, and suddenly, I'm dozing off and the night is gone.

So I make plans to get up early which ends one of two ways:

a) I don't.
b) The girls get up early too.

Then I spend naptime the next day (if I'm lucky enough to get a simultaneous nap) catching up, not quite getting there, and I'm falling further and further behind.

Clean? Dirty? I'm starting to lose track of the piles.

The laundry is piling up.

I have three half finished posts (that I started writing during naptime and was interrupted by non nappers). I have not posted anything in days.

I have hundreds of pictures on the camera that need to come off.

The upstairs in our house is definitely "family eyes only".

I'm getting in that cycle of being so overwhelmed, that I can't pick what needs top priority, so I just do nothing instead. Which leads to having more to do, so I'm more overwhelmed...and repeat.

Anyway, as our social life (or Madison's social life) starts revving up and our weekends get busy, and as Adam gets into a cycle where his travel picks up again, I need to find a way where I can both allow myself time to sit down and relax once the girls are in bed, and still keep up with everything that needs time. So I can do what I want to do (write, mess with my pictures) and what I need to do (laundry, dishes) and still get to sit down and just catch my breath.

Gee, I just want it all, don't I?

Or I can work on developing a time machine.
