MOST of the time I like living in the country. Some days however I think we should pack up and buy a newer, smaller house with a beautifully tree'd lot. A simpler house with tons of storage and practicality.
I'm 33 weeks pregnant, have 3 kids that constantly play and touch everything, NO storage what so ever, we live in a GIANT old home on a farm that requires a TON of dusting and maintenance inside and out. My husband works 3 days on and 2 days off leaving him little time to complete tiny projects that continue to build (forget about the big ones!)
Some days I just become sooo frustrated that I can't keep up. I barely have enough energy to simply pick up all the toys and take care of the animals let alone get ANYTHING else that needs to be done on the list. I have a friend coming with kids this weekend, and although I know she will be very understanding and loving, I am frustrated that the spare room won't be ready for her!
We rarely get overnight guests here, and I don't want to present my home well. I want to be proud of it. Comfortable in it. NOT feel like I have to explain that this still needs to be done as well as that.
Actually it is the Bugs and dirt NOT the dust that I still need to tackle and that is just NOT acceptable. Finding something growing in my sink the other day was just the last straw!!!!
Sigh...Good thing I know she really won't care and that it is just MY wants and needs that are not being met
Good things for great friends that also won't mind helping me install some blinds !!
