I really don't expect too much from my life. A reasonably clean house, a home that doesn't smell like a sewage treatment plant, a reasonable amount of sleep every night, the luxury of using the toilet alone and behind a closed door, a solid hour where NO ONE IS TOUCHING ME. That's about it.
So why is that NONE of these things ever happen??? Every time I make progress on getting one room clean, another is destroyed by a toddler or a husband with muddy boots. If it's not one of the boys' diapers stinking up the house, it's the husband's (ungodly awful) gas. Sleep? What's that? I always seem to have a "helper" when it comes time to go potty. And they all touch me. ALL.THE.TIME.
I'm over it. All of it. I want out. Now. I want to be single and childless. I want my adorable little cottage-like house that I couldn't buy because it wasn't big enough for a growing family. I want my house to smell like baked goods or flowers or pretty much anything except fecal matter. I want to sleep in on Saturday mornings. For the love of all things holy, I JUST WANT TO PEE IN PEACE!
Anyone want to swap lives for a week or two? Or have any suggestions on how I can rewind life and seriously reconsider my choices?
