Late night rambles

Standard

So, I’ve been trying to learn (and let me tell you, teaching yourself something when you know nothing, poses some challenges) how to let go of certain pet peeves. 

Jay and I still minimize what each other does in the course of a “working day”…sure, he works in a warehouse picking boxes for 12 hours a shift…I still think chasing and dealing with a fussy (learning independence while still wanting mommy) baby turning in to a toddler is a full time job.  Yet, I’m still expected to keep the house pristine and have dinner on the table by 6 (even my mother contributed to that)…

I don’t know about any other Momma’s….but even when my kid doesn’t have an ear infection, I still don’t sleep soundly…I still listen to the monitor, USUALLY the one to jump out of bed in the wee hours of the morning to hush up the screaming baby….by the time 6pm rolls around, I don’t even want to look at the kitchen let alone cook…

I don’t want sympathy…empathy maybe….but maybe I’d be less resistant if once in a while someone else cooked, or made sure the garbage was put out every week instead of saying they slept in and didn’t have time.  Maybe if there was a joint effort in cooking or even cleaning up after instead of saying it’s my mess so I have to clean it.  

When I put all of this in to perspective, this really is a dumb issue.  Some women have the gene to just make things happen and are even happy to do so. Hell, women have been programmed for years to do this….I feel like I have some weird mutation (maybe a bit of laziness) where my brain says, I should only do 50% because I’m not the only one who lives here.  

I think the real issue here is maybe I don’t feel appreciated enough and there for lack the motivation to go above and beyond when it comes to anything other than the baby.

Anyways, it’s past my bedtime so I shall go.

Nice chattin’ with ya internet.

The Purge

Standard

Now that we have the new car, we have enough space to make a trip to the dump to discard items that can not be sold/donated/fixed and reused.

I have a bunch of clothes and kitchen items that are going out for donation….we’ve needed this purge for a while – maybe since before our last move.

We’re trying to be proactive for our move next year – we might be moving a half an hour out of town and the less we have to move, the better!

Also, we have to move the big ass desk back in to the back room – just in case I do get a job where I can work from home.  I don’t want to be lugging that big ass thing the day before training….

We haven’t yet sorted out what we’re going to do for child care.  We know we only need 3 days a week (yahoo!)

Anyways, I must get back to my “to do” list…I think I forgot to put nap on there….

Hope everyone has a wonderful week 🙂
