How do they do it?

Do you know there are people out there who actually manage to work full time, bring up kids and keep their houses (relatively) tidy. I’m not sure whether I should admire them are track them down and shoot them in a jealous rage. I can barely cope with dragging myself out of bed early enough to have a shower before work never mind anything else (and I certainly don’t have time to shave the forest that’s where my legs should be). And I’m possibly the world’s worst housewife – which may actually be part of the reason I have neither a house nor a husband. Hmm, I think I shall have to ask the boyfriend. “If I improve my housekeeping skills do you think you might consider moving in with me one day?”. Have a feeling that one may go down like a lead balloon.

So it seems like I’m even more ridiculously useless than usual lately.Ā  Although I did actually manage to remember to go to the post office, which is good. Another 2 days and they would have taken my package back to where it came from. And I’ve washed most of the dishes now (notice how I have to qualify that one with a most – I’m not that good). On the other hand, I never did get round to taking my clothes out of the wardrobe for a moth inspection. And I totally forgot to post a letter to a friend again. It’s been sitting there for over a week just waiting to be stamped and put in the post box. It’s not even like I have to go and buy stamps – I have stamps in my purse. It’s just the taking one out and sticking it on the envelope part that appears to be beyond me. Also I desperately need to do some washing before I completely run out of stuff to wear for work ( how I long for the day when I have a washing machine!). Oh, and I completely forgot that my tram ticket run out today so I have no idea what I’m going to do about getting to work tomorrow. Take the old one and pray nobody checks or hope I have enough money on me for two one way tickets? Decisions, decisions…

How many days is it til the weekend?

  1. i agree with you! there’s just me and the husband, and i’m home all day, and i don’t feel i’m being tidy enough. my cooking is even worse. i’m just glad kj doesn’t seem to notice anything wrong. ^-^

  2. Hi Bev! Nice blog!

    Let me tell you, if you work full time then the kids don’t get chance to mess up the house during the day as they are being looked after by someone else and making a mess somewhere else! SO I wouldn’t feel too bad! Alternatively I have my 2 kids at home all day and that is MY full time job. The kids then mess up the house as soon as you have tidied it! My friend worked full time with 2 kids but stayed home since she had her 3rd she says the staying at home is the much harder option!!

  3. Anna – if that was me I would probably not tidy up at all then claim I did do it but the kids messed it up again. I suppose that method would stop working once they learned to talk though.
