I can’t lie. I’m feeling overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, and just generally farklemt. There is so much that needs to be done in our current house before we can put it on the market, the number one project being the master bathroom renovation. If anyone knows our track record for projects then it should come as no surprise that we’ve been working on this since February. Also, it should come as no surprise to anyone that the “our” in that previous sentence means “Marcus.”
There isn’t much I can do at this point with the bathroom. I’m only mildly handy with a paint brush (at least that’s how I like to play it) and I know the difference between a Phillips and a slotted screwdriver although, full disclosure, I had to look up what the actual name is for a slotted screwdriver. With that being said I definitely cannot install a toilet or hook-up the sinks. I could maybe install a light. Maybe.
This is all to say that I have just completely lost my mojo. Even the most basic of stay-at-home mom duties have fallen by the wayside. The laundry is piled a mile high, the floors are disgusting (though the dog is very diligent in keeping them crumb free), the dishes regularly sit in the sink for a day or two before I even bother, beds are left in a state of being slept in…the list goes on. The overwhelming stress of this current house and the move back to Fredericksburg has brought me to my knees and all I can do is sit on the couch and stare into space. So, I’m sorry. Posting and keeping everyone informed is definitely important to me…I just have to get through the next few weeks.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used Ann Lamott’s quote when looking at an overwhelming task: “just take it bird by bird”
I’m sorry dude, I would’ve come over to help you get caught up! Are you guys using movers at least? Don’t guilt trip yourself about getting behind, anyone in your situation would be just as overwhelmed!
This matches up with “How to eat an elephant” – one step at a time. Somehow, you will get through this.
