I sometimes come out to create a post and want to make sure it sounds ok to anyone that might possibly stop by my blog or I worry about how I come across. You know what... that is not truthfully showing you my life... aka, 'Leah's Life'. My life is full of complete randomness and disorder right now... has been like this since we started working on The House! I'm overwhelmed one second and laughing/crying (it varies) the next.
While I was out of town last weekend, my husband sent me a picture of our guest room. I could have sworn it was actually a room from that show, Hoarders: Buried Alive. No... it was in MY house! I have been sorting and packing and this room has ended up as our 'catch all'. And by all, I mean I have literally been throwing everything I don't have time to deal with in this room! I am craving an organized and orderly life right now! =)
We got home from working on the house one night (9 PM) this week and I realized I was hungry and had not eaten anything all day. Since my schedule (husband - ha!) does not allow time for grocery shopping lately our supper options were LIMITED. I found some grape juice in the fridge and then made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I had to use hamburger buns 'cause that was the only bread we had. Ah... improvising... it was a delicious supper regardless! =) Most days I am surviving on caffeine and carry-out... I am losing weight and have never felt so unhealthy in all of my life!
My husband went out to check our mailbox the other day and sent me a picture of about 12 inches of mail. Most of that (thankfully) was magazines, but it's even the little things (like checking mail) that I can't even remember to do lately! My mind is completely gone or only remembers useless information.
I've been coming home from working on the house (around 9 PM or so) to get my laptop and putting in a few more hours of work (for my paying job). It's a cycle that is about to put me over the edge!
It's a good thing I have a lot of clothes because laundry gets done once a week, if that. I use to work on it every evening when I came home so that I could keep on top of it. Ha... now I just try to make sure we actually have a towel to dry off with after showers. Although it might be a hand towel!
I could go on forever... I'm laughing as I type this because that's just where I am right now. Know that I'm not complaining... just getting my feelings out =) I have so much to look forward to in the coming months... vacation is a MUST and relaxing evenings will be a priority this winter!!!
So how's that for being real? Welcome to my chaos... now back to regularly scheduled posting where I try to act like I have things together! =)
