It Isn't Easy Being Me

When I am finally able to rest my head at the end of the day, I often think "Okay,I survived another day". It's not that I have a death defying job, although I do put my makeup on while driving myself to the office. I don't have dangerous hobbies, but I have been known to stumble down stairs after par taking in my favorite hobbie..wine drinking.
What I am getting at is, it isn't easy being me. I am unorganized, messy, a procrastinator and I have no will power. This makes for long days, full of running around from unfinished task to unfinished task, stubbing half polished toes along the way.
I am the mommy who forgets to bring extra clothes for water play. I am the employee that can't get to work ontime to save my life and the pretty much wife that has everything to make her pretty much hubby lasagna except, well lasagna noodles.
I am constantly making extra trips to the store, to daycare and out to my car for forgottens. I look at people that get up early because they like to, put things in the same spot everytime and have clean cars with envy and disbeleif. What happened to me to make me this way? What vitamin was my mother lacking during her pregnancy with me?
At the end of the week I am tired. I cancel plans with people or forget that I even ever made them. Then I am also, the bad friend that stood you up, and I am too unorganised to buy you a nice card to make up for my oops.
Sigh...Life is difficult for the flighty minded.

I have many friends just like 'you' which I look onto with envy as I always think they are having so much fun, living life to the fullest, having no regrets, and just taking it all in. I'm the mom with the hundreds set of clothes and the extra cards for every occasion on hand who is forgetting to live life!! there has to be a happy medium..right?

i was and still am that kind of mommy. I took my son to the first day of school only to find out it was the wrong day, school wasn't starting until the following day.

Wine drinking is one of my favorite hobbies too!

I can never make a swift getaway. I go out to the car and then realize that I forgot something and go back in for it. And then, I go back out except I realize that when I went in I forgot my keys there...and so it goes....

So, I can relate!

I don't have a child but otherwise we are very similar - I am constantly running late, finding myself disorganized, etc - it's difficult but no matter how many organizational strategies I implement it remains that way...

You must be missing your ex p.a. who I hear is on Holiday and who hopefully owns a washing machine that still works.

I do miss my ex PA, as for the washing machine...and it was a really small load. it wouldnt even turn on, i thought maybe you shut it off (like the water or something)
