I'm exhausted and could use some help in trying to figure out what order to tackle these various things:
In no particular order - because, if I HAD an order, I wouldn't be here asking for help!
First of all, I'm married, two kids ages 6 and 8. Been away for the entire summer at my Mom's house, helping her - she's been ill. While I was gone, we had a water pipe burst. DH took care of that and the repair work was done while we were gone. But I've returned to our entire storage area empty and everything in it sitting out in the carport. Lots of stuff that needs to be gone through. We are planning a yard sale, maybe next weekend.
Second, I'm sick right now. I think my body was on adrenaline overload this summer, helping Mom, taking care of my two kids full-time, cleaning out her 100 year old basement, etc. I think I got home and my body just said, "Enough!" And now I'm feeling under the weather, some sort of flu/cold, achy, etc. So I don't have a lot of energy right now.
Third, there is still construction mess around here - dust, etc. Need to get that cleaned up. Could possibly hire help and have the insurance company pay for that.
Then, I work. I've put off my clients until the end of the week, hoping I'll feel better by then to see them.
I managed to get to the grocery store yesterday - don't know how I did it, other than sheer willpower. But I get get groceries and I got the kitchen cleaned up. Believe me, I did not look as cute and perky as this nice little avatar does when I was doing the dishes. It was more like this:
Kids stuff is everywhere. Need to de-clutter and get ready for the yard sale.
A positive note - kids will help me. They are good kids and will run the stairs and be useful.
Then I have volunteer stuff I do for a couple organizations. I know, I know. You are probably saying, forget about that! And take care of yourself and your family first. However, I do take my volunteering seriously and it needs to be done. Need to figure out how to fit that in.
Anyway, any advice on getting this stuff organized into some sort of order? I would so appreciate it. My sinuses are so full right now and I cannot think clearly!
