It's MY life...

So, Happy New Year's Eve Eve... 


I have now been married to the man of my DREAMS for a little over a year.  However, I am not happy with MY PART of my life.  What?  What in the world does that mean?


First, I love my husband DEARLY and I love being married to him.  I wouldn't change the gift I was given the day he walked into my life ever - EVER.  


What is wrong?  This once extremely organized woman has turned into a mess!  I used to have each task of my household scheduled on a certain day.  Now?  I'm lucky if I do laundry once a week!  I quit working six months ago so that I could become a Domestic Goddess!  I am now feeling like the Evil Stepsister!  


How to break this cycle of domestic chaos?  How to break the cycle of feeling completely unhealthy physically?  How to get the umph back in my life?  I do not yet know the answers.  I'm frustrated.  I sleep way to late in the morning.  I don't plan meals like I feel like I should.  I don't clean my home like I feel like I should... There isn't an area in my life right now where I don't feel like "I should"... 


I'm reaching out to the wide world of the internet... writing to my ONE blog follower!  Thank you, Kristen!  


What are you frustrated with in your life?  What would you change in the "I should" category? 


Life is a gift..

Now, to your blog post...I think we should start 2011 with a clean slate. So what if we slept too late 400 times in 2010? It's over now...and we only get the opportunity to "start over again" once a year (unless we give ourselves second chances, too!).

So, I'm going to nix the shoulda-coulda-wouldas and start 2011 thinking, "I will..." and see where we get from there. It's just one day at a time in my life, Miss Kelly. Try having 6 kids and then tell me how much you get done in a day! LOL

Here's one for you...you "should" get a button. :) Go here: http://oikology101.blogspot.com/2008/09/make-your-own-button-for-your-blogger.html

When you have one, let me know!

Oh goodness... I cannot even IMAGINE what it is like to have 6 children!! Though I always wanted to be a Mom, it never happened for me....

Part of my "funk" relates to the death of my much loved Mom... Read my very first post...

I'm going to get my button now! ;-)

Thank you so much, Bethany!!!

I WILL make positive changes this year!!!!!

Let's take this journey together. When you read my blog post of 1/6/11 you will see I'm in a similar boat. My first resolution to accomplish is to unload dishwasher (while the Lex Lex is chowing down, she always wakes me up), plan dinner, make bed and start a load of laundry before I am willing to touch the computer. Try that one with me. It's a start! xoxoxoxo

The FlyLady has been nagging in the back of my head again! LOL ... I completely gave up trying during the holidays. However, it would be awesome to have someone make me accountable! Deal - I'll start tomorrow! Shiny sink, bed made, dressed to shoes, and dinner planned!
