mlktwins Posted January 19, 2012 Share Posted January 19, 2012 I am just so frustrated with myself and I know some of you wonderful ladies will understand. I want to get stuff organized around my house -- the school room especially. Can't motivate to get organized. I need to lose weight -- am on WW. Can't motivate to stay on track (at least I'm not gaining anything back) or exercise. I actually have DH's go ahead to shop for furniture, pictures, lamps, etc. We moved to our dream home back in May. Can't seem to find time or energy to do that either. I feel like our house is not a home quite yet -- not many pictures on the wall, need to get some area rugs, etc. Then there are things I want to do that would make me happy -- work on my scrapbooks, organize my pictures, realy learn my away around my camera and take awesome pictures. Those are my passions (aside from DH and my boys). I always tell myself when I get such and such done, I will take time to work on the things that will make me happy. But...I can't seem to motivate to get the yucky stuff done. I'm a procrastinator so that doesn't help much. I am also a planner and sometimes that doesn't work to my advantage. I often spend too much time planning what and how I will do things and not enough time accomplishing. I make a list every night of things I want to accomplish the next day. For example, I list that I will spend 1 or 2 hours working on organizing the school room. Then I spend several hours in there with the boys, get frustrated that it isn't organized yet, and then don't want to go back in there until school the next day :tongue_smilie:. So...nothing is getting done. I am staying up with the cleaning, laundry, cooking, dishes, bill paying, grocery shopping, etc. Just can't find the motivation to finish getting organized and I can't seem to allow myself to do the things that I would enjoy until the organization is done. I just feel like it's a never ending cycle. Yet I know if I would catch up and have a place for everything, life would be so much smoother. I don't even know why I'm writing this. I've only mentioned it to DH and he said "just do it!" :D He is a very hard worker and will just plug away at something until it is done. The organization is my area though -- he loves that about me because when I get it done, it will be really nice. Anyway, thanks for reading if you read this far. I don't talk to my friends IRL about this. Their houses are all put together, they send their kids to school, and several of them have cleaning people for their house. I don't think they would really understand. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
