i wasn't always a terrible housekeeper, but i guess i am now. hubby is a slob, ds is just a messy kid, and i am a tired, nauseated pregnant lady. lol. there's no hope right now. we are looking for a house, and God willing, we'll be able to move before this baby is born.
we are currently living in a tiny one bedroom guest house. there is no dishwasher hookup, and no washer/dryer hookup. that means we always have massive amounts of dirty laundry and dishes everywhere. i haul the laundry off to the laundry mat about once a week, but the dishes just sit around until hubby has the time and inclination to wash them. i can't handle it right now. they make me hurl.
ds has too many toys. like WAY TOO MANY. i'm going to go through them again and get rid of some more, but i'm sort of at a loss about which ones to get rid of, since he actually likes and plays with most of them. he also likes to drag out everything at once...all the legos, all the wooden blocks, all the train set, a couple of puzzles. he won't even attempt to help pick them up, and there isn't anywhere to store some of them out of his reach.
i'm guilty of having too many craft supplies, although i use them, and would use them even more if i had a bit more room. we have yarn in baskets all over the house (the cats periodically dump them out and unravel yarn all over the place). i sell tie dye at craft shows and online, and there are clothing blanks, dyed garments, and dyeing supplies all over the house as well.
we also have probably too many pets, and they're messy, and a lot of extra work. we love them though, so i try not to resent them too much.
i am starting to get panicky. the holidays are coming up. that means more decorations and junk on top of everything else. we are also hopefully going to be moving in the next six months or so, but the prospect of packing and moving while very pregnant and caring for a toddler is not something i'm looking firward to. finally, if we do move, i'll have to unpack everything and get it all set up again, hopefully before the baby is born.ahhhh i could just scream!
