Unfinished Business

Yes, I have some, but not the kind people usually think of.  I am bad about starting a project and not getting it finished.  I certainly don't do this on purpose, but it happens.  Life happens.  I hate that I don't have any time to do the things I WANT to do because my time is filled with the things I HAVE to do.  I work all day, I get the kids, go home and make dinner, make sure stuff is ready for the next day, clean the kitchen after dinner, then there's the endless piles of laundry, then it's time for the kids shower and bed, then an hour or so later, I go to bed. It's like this EVERY.SINGLE.DAY!  I don't get a break to sit back and do things I want to do like work on my crafts THAT ARE FOR THE HOUSE, I would like to scrapbook again someday, get some organizing done.

For the last week or so, I have been trying to get caught up on cutting and organizing my coupon stash.  I had fallen off the bandwagon of my couponing and  I'm trying to get back at it.  I had ALOT of coupons to cut and organize and weed through the ones that were expired.  Then I had to get all of the expired ones out of my binder.  That was a task, let me ya!  I would work on it while cooking dinner or between other things I was doing, but apparently, I was not doing it as fast as some people would have wanted me to do it.

I can't get anything done because I'm constantly being pulled away to do something for someone else and it really pisses me off.  I'm like why can't I finish just one thing?  Just one!  That's all I'm asking for.

So yesterday after "some people" came home from helping a friend with yard work (friend has a blown knee), he went into the dining room and saw this.......

made a face, like well, I guess I'm going to have to do this myself and proceeded to finish it while I finished dinner and sat down with the kids to eat.  It's my stuff and I will finish it.  Just because I don't finish it in the time frame said person thinks I should finish it doesn't mean it' going to get done.  It really hurt my feelings even more than normal because said person had just told me the day before that it really irritates him that it takes me so long to finish a project.  

I do the best I can.  I have so much on my plate and so much that I want to do.  I found myself literally walking in circles the other day in the kitchen because I had so many things on my mind that I needed to do right then I didn't know which way to go so I was walking in circles.  

Again, I do the best I can, I have everyone to take care of and a million other things to do.  I don't know, I need serious help, time management, or something......Any suggestions?  I open for them!

  1. Um, well. I would tell "said person" to bite me. Or I would tell "said person" to do it yourself and from this point forward it is your responsibility and I will be the one to bitch and moan when it is not getting done. I think that "said person" must also live at my house! Love ya!


I love comments! I will read and respond to every one of them!
