A lot of us have complained about being too tired to get much done around the house, so I thought it'd be fun to share what we've let go around the house or put off in our daily life. I'll start it off, and come on, ladies...BE HONEST! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
-Right now I have eight laundry baskets full of laundry in my bedroom waiting to be folded.<br><br>
-I have wood floors in my livingroom and diningroom, and I haven't mopped them since March.<br><br>
-We've had PB & J two dinners in a row because I didn't feel like going to the grocery store.<br><br>
-I quit making my bed when my 1st daughter was born. I do change the sheets, though, but don't ask me how often.

i have a load of dipes in the dryer, a dried but not folded load of towels in my dad's apt (which will drive him nuts when he gets up this morning), two undone loads in a pile (not in the basket which i meant to use to carry up the towels) in the bathroom.<br><br>
i have a dog that smells like the town garbage dump 'cause i haven't washed her in two months.<br><br>
i have dustbunnies bigger than my ds and they are now running the household i think.<br><br>
i have a stack of bills and other paperwork to file that is about 4 inches high<br><br>
i have a bunch of clothes that don't fit ds anymore sitting all over the house.<br><br>
hmm, i know this can't be all...

I have two papers and a major project that should all be done by the middle of August and I haven't work on anything since early May. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:<br><br>
I have a garage full of boxes and clothes from my old apartment that need to be put away; they've been there for about a month.<br><br>
I haven't vacuumed in about 2 months!! Yuck.<br><br>
I have a stack of papers and books on my desk, including bills that need to be paid and old bills stubs to be filed/organized.

We finished moving into our new house two weeks ago - there are still paths to get around the boxes.<br><br>
I haven't gone grocery shopping in almost a month - just quick meal shopping.<br><br>
The dog is underexercised and starving for attention.<br><br>
My work performance sucks because I can't stay awake at my desk.<br><br>
I haven't cleaned the new house thoroughly yet.<br><br>
Laundry has overtaken the laundry room and I caught some of it copulating the other day...I'm expecting offspring soon.<br><br>
I feel so guilty, but I'm just so tired after working 8 hours....and I can't take anymore time off, my boss is mad and I just end up sleeping half the day away.

The family room now looks like a preschool, with toys strewn all over.<br><br>
I haven't cooked a decent dinner in weeks - thank goodness for dh and my ability to make a meal (or seven) out of jarred sauerkraut and organic hot dogs.<br><br>
I have to weed my flower beds BADLY. The mulch we put in this spring must have had little saplings in it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
I just washed the Brita pitcher and changed the filter after more than 6 weeks. And it sits out on our counter, not the fridge. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: I think we all must be immune to all sorts of exotic bacteria by now.<br><br>
I'm behind on 3 wedding presents, 2 birthday presents, 2 fathers-day presents (my dad and stepdad) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"> , and 1 housewarming gift.<br><br>
There's more, lot's more, but I'm tired :yawning: and am going to go try to take a quick snooze before the kids wake up from their nap!

It's my naptime, too, so this is the last post I'm reading :LOL (and I'm glad I did). Right now I need to do dishes, mop, vaccuum, my tub is gross <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pinktongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="raz"> , I have 3 laundry baskets full of clean clothes that need folded, and about 6 loads of laundry to do! I have tried to do good on the eating front, b/c that's what my DH wants the most :LOL FOOD!!!

YAY!! I'm not a complete loser!! I'm NORMAL!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I have been such a bum it's embarrassing.<br><br>
My husband finally broke down and cleaned the bathroom last week because I haven't done it in.......I can't remember when.<br><br>
We have spiderwebs or cobwebs or something funky all over the place. I walk past them in every corner every day and have no desire to get out the vaccuum and suck em up!<br><br>
The sink is full of dishes.<br><br>
I did break down and mop my kitchen floor the other day because it was too disgusting.<br><br>
I have about 4 loads of laundry (that dh washed yesterday) sitting in baskets on our unmade bed. Instead of putting them up this afternoon, I watched Dr. Phil, The Ellen Degeneras Show, and Enough. <b>That's 4 hours of tv!!!!</b> The laundry is still in baskets on the unmade bed.<br><br>
I bought a yoga mat and stretchie bands and a yoga dvd over a month ago and haven't used them once yet.<br><br>
I am actually really anxious for nesting to kick in. I hate living in filth and feeling guilty cause I'm a lazy slob.<br><br>
I WANT MY ENERGY BACK!!!!
