Losing It

I pride myself on being an organized person. Other words to describe me? Neat, orderly. And some other things, but lets stick to the subject at hand.

So anyway, organization.

I am organized. Everything has a place, and it more or less stays there. When there is clutter around, it makes me all twitchy (is that even a word?) and anxious.

Which is why I have NO explanation what-so-ever for the current state of things. On the table there is: carpet cleaner, four days worth of mail, two glasses, my purse, the coupon file, three diapers, a handheld game, and my gym bag. Ack! Just thinking about it is starting to make me nuts. But not nuts enough to deal with it...yet...I'm a little tired, and not yet motivated to put things away.

In the last few days I feel like I must be losing my mind. Not only is the sight of clutter making me twitch, but I can't seem to remember anything either. Luckily I am attached to my calendar like glue, because if I weren't I would never get anywhere I was supposed to be! I have also, in the last 48 hours, managed to dump both a cup of marinara sauce and an entire glass of red wine onto my cream color carpet. And then I got the pleasure of cleaning the carpets. Good times.

So, dear internets, tell me that it isn't just me....and that everyone begins to lose their mind every once and a while. Right?

I lost it awhile ago and I'm still waiting to find it again. I used to be anal and my house used to be very clean. Then I had kids. ;)

Oh dear heavens Brittany, that is NOT the issue. I am just an idiot.

But you should have seen the look on my face when I read that - because I'm sure it was priceless...

my bedroom was starting to make me twitchy too, and you know i'm always messier than you. i tried to tackle it over the weekend and got part of it put away. we'll just have to keep hanging on to our calendars until we can manage to pull it together. :) i'm sure you'll manage before i do!

Um...my first thought was - pregnant, too! But then I remembered that although I WAS like that when I became pregnant - I never fully recovered. And I still have moments, days, weeks like that! And there is definitely no stork visiting here either. Phew...almost makes you wish for it though - at least it is a valid excuse!

You should see one of my closets right now! Everything else is sooo organized and it's my one area that is completely the opposite! It's normal!

If that small pile of things makes you twitchy, you'd probably break out into an all out seizure if you could see the bar in my kitchen. LOL!

Christina said...

It most definitely is NOT just you! I am in the exact same boat. Can't remember anything. Mommy brain is more real than I ever believed. I have lost all motivation to keep order, too.

Was it Gwyneth Paltrow who said "My brain cells are leaking out with my breast milk."?

Are you failing to take into account all the study and school work you have ALSO been doing????
