I haven't cleaned my house in a month

I don't know how I've let it go this long. Or why really. I cleaned my bedroom today and Katie was shocked to see that the room actually does have a floor. I just haven't felt up to it. For a long time I was doing really good and following FlyLady and my house looked great. For some reason I just totally started slacking off and yesterday I finally saw how dirty it is. I'm surprised Dh hasn't said anything. I'm looking forward to getting everything back in shape and getting back into my routines. I feel so much better when everything is neat and tidy.

Dh came home Monday from a trip to New Jersey and Atlanta. He says that Atlanta is beautiful and wants us to consider moving there. I would seriously love to get out of California, only because of the gas and house prices. It's just crazy. My parents would probably have heart attacks if I moved their grandkids that far away from them.

I just finished reading You On A Diet. It's an awesome book. It has a ton of information. If you're trying to lose weight you should read this book. It has really helped me. Even if you don't use their program it still has a lot of helpful information. Stay away from the high fructose corn syrup. It's bad, bad, bad. I practically live on fruits and veggies now and I feel so much better. I had no idea how crappy all the fast food I was eating was making me feel. I don't even crave it any more. The only drawback is that I'm spending all the money I was spending on fast food on shoes.

I forgot how to type?

It's been practically forever since I've posted and in all honesty I haven't been all that busy. I just didn't really feel like it. Sometimes I go for months and then post like a woman possessed. There was of course the week my in-laws were visiting. That was an excercise in restraint. My mil is a nice lady, but she does some really weird things. Some people bring you a gift when they stay at your home. Wine or flowers, my mil brought toilet paper. Two rolls aproximately. Toilet paper, the gift that keeps on giving. Until the roll runs out at least. She pruned all the trees in the backyard, cleaned and rearranged the bathroom and folded the pile of clothes that I needed to iron. I appreciated the pruning and cleaning, but folding clothes that need to be ironed? (shrugs) I just couldn't tell ya.

I've been really tired lately. I've started excersizing and eating better. I've lost 6 lbs. I'm taking my vitamins and omega 3's. I just don't understand while I feel like sleeping all the time. I can't keep my eyes open. I can be awake for a couple of hours, but then it's nap time. Maybe I'm reverting to infancy. Next I'll be wanting a bottle and my blankie.

Dh has been out of town for the past week. Seriously, there's not much difference from when he's here. It's not like he helps with the cooking and cleaning and getting the kids ready for bed. I know he feels bad about it, but he never does anything to change it. It's pretty frustrating. I need a break, but I can never get him to take over long enough. The most I can get is a couple of hours on the weekend to take a nap or something. Even then the kids come and wake me up when they want something because they asked dh and he still hasn't gotten up to get it for them. Such is the life of the SAHM. Oh well, things could be worse I suppose.

Thank goodness the sun is back out. I love the rain, but the kids being forced to stay inside drives us all crazy. Hopefully we can get back to the regular routine of baseball and softball. It's nice to get out and the kids get really worn out which is always a good thing.
