Balance

 As I talked about in my 7 things yesterday, I am having a very hard time finding balance in my life right now.
I have always been the person who has to have a spotless house, have all the dishes done and nothing left in the sink, all the laundry washed, folder and put away, complete things that are on my never ending to do list, etc.
I can never just sit down to watch TV or relax without either cleaning, organizing or doing something.
There is always something to be done in our house or on my to do list.
I think this is my big downfall.
I need to let something go and relax.
But what on earth is it?
Yes, I am a very neurotic and controlling person and if everything is not just so it drives me crazy!

This all is putting a strain on me and I feel like I'm going to bust soon.
I hate the way I have been feeling lately but I just don't know what to do about it.
What do I need to give up?
I have not felt 100% healthy in months (probably because I eat crap) and I am sick of feeling stressed out.

What do you all do to keep your balance in your daily lives?
I need some help ladies!!

Oh hun, I am so with you on this. It's crazy how these "little" things can make us seem out of whack. The best thing that has happened around here in a while was last Saturday JD took Trey to meet his dad for lunch and to run to the pet store. They were only gone 90 minutes maybe, but in that amount of time I managed to clean our room, run dishes, vacuum, etc. All of the things I have been having a hard time doing with the two of them home.
I'm also starting to try and eat better and work out each evening - I need to update my other blog but it's really already helping!
I hope you find some balance soon - just remember you have a wonderful baby boy and that is all that matters!! :)
Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!

I wish I could help, but I feel the same way a lot of the time! Good luck, if you find the answer please let me know.

Oh girl - you poor thing! Sounds like you need some helping hands - I got to this point about 2 years ago (before Addie eve arrived) and we re-arranged our budget so we could manage to have someone come clean our home every other week - it really helps!!

Help my first reaction was you could come to my house and clean bc I have the opposite problem. BUT that is not good bloggy type advice. Then my next advice was a big glass of wine, but that doesn't sound like good advice either so...maybe you need a good exercise class or something. Something that will tire you out so you can relax and it releases those endorphins (sp)...and makes you feel a little better. Cheer up though I am confident you will find that balance. Mostly because you recognized that something has got to give. Good luck sweets.
