Top 5 Signs I Don't Have My Life Together

Ive gotten comments on here, IG, even in emails that ask how I manage to 'do it all'. Those comments seriously make me laugh. If you saw the state of my house 75% of the time you sure as hell wouldn't be asking that. Seriously. My shit isn't together. And here's just a few signs of that if you needed 'proof'.

1. My Laundry room. At Any given time i Have at least 5 loads of clean laundry to fold and put away and another 5 loads to wash. And I mean at ANY given time. I remember once for like an hour a year ago when all the laundry was done. It was glorious. It hasn't happened since. And probably won't happen till my kids are all off to college. And then they will probably pull a college Darlene and come home with 8 loads of laundry to do over the weekend but will be too busy to Actually do it and mom will. Because moms are awesome like that. 

2. My bedroom/closet. EVEN if by some miracle (or the day after the cleaning lady is here) the rest o the house is super clean, those two are almost always a disaster. We currently share a room with Soren, and the only time I can clean is when he's sleeping, and when he's sleeping he's in our room...see the problem? Haven't quite figured out a solution to that one yet so, basically always a disaster. 

3.We still have our Christmas tree up..it's January 18th.

4. Jasper informed me this morning that he has no clean socks. Thanks for the heads up dude. Luckily his feet are almost my size so he borrowed a pair of mine. So yeah, my shit is clearly not together. 

5. We had take out Friday, Saturday AND Sunday night.  This is partly Drew's fault. I cook (mostly) healthy all week so when the weekend rolls around, I'm over cooking. And I need to meal plan and grocery shop again, and when Drew's all "hey lets order Pizza" I can easily be convinced.


This list could go on and on. And I could show you my hair, which hasn't been washed in 3 or 4 days (can't even remember at this point) but all to say, my life isn't all together. And that's OKAY. I read a quote once that went something like "Don't compare how you feel inside to someone else's outside" and I feel like that applies here. Don't for a second think that because I happened to instagram 3 healthy meals in a row, or posted a picture of my clean child playing happily in a clean room that my shit is together. Because the day after those healthy home cooked meals we probably had pizza delivered and just because my living room looks nice and tidy doesn't meant my toilets have been scrubbed in 2016.

  4. This almost sums up my household! Except instead of socks, my oldest doesn't tells me she's out of clean undies until it's bedtime and I'm exhausted. Oh and my tree is already down, thanks to my oldest. She said "Mom it isn't Christmas so why is the tree up and the gingerbread house sitting out?" She also complained about the snow, but I can't control that! Love your honesty and by the way your hair looks good :)
