Mobile Is everyone like this? (Busy life)

I feel rushed off my feet constantly, the house is a mess, the washing piles up and I never seem to have time to do anything. Then the weekend comes and I try to catch up but don't always want to as want to do fun things.
Im busy working for myself all week out and about, kids , pets, everything just gets too much sometimes and I'm constantly rushing or my heart racing.

Hate leaving the house in a tip every morning but it's so manic getting us all out on time ,we are often running late dropping the teens at school.

I have had no.time to go food shopping and have nothing for dinner.

Help.!

Yep! Welcome to our world. Had a rare evening off Monday so sorted the house out 6pm-11.30pm and then crashed out in bed. Still up to our eyes in washing.

But having 2 jobs each, and within those jobs, 2 sets of normal work clothes, 1 suit that has to be worn multiple times, 2 full uniforms, and another 2 sets of work clothes means washing is literally coming out of our ears. Between two of us, 6 sets of clothes will be worn today! At least 4 sets will need washing once we are home.

Weve got friends coming over Friday night. I need a few more hours in the day!

I do know the feeling. I need to get the rest of the family to do their bit but I also know that I like having things done my way !
I do online food shopping. Not always happy with it but it saves going.

As the song goes we need to let it go ! The kids wont remember you lived in a nice tidy house but they will remember the fun stuff at weekend.
If I say anything to husband though he would say to me dont waste your time on the Dibb then if you have no time 😂

This sounds familiar! I am constantly running late.
The house isnt usually a mess because we only have DS who is 15 but when he was little there was always a trail of toys and stuff everywhere!
Teenage boys tend not to have stuff, just lots of clothes so its not so bad.
Keeping on top of sports kit is a mammoth task and making sure the right things are clean for the right days. Why cant they have universal kit?
School stuff is so tough. I love being involved with it all but the timings are tricky with work.
I had a rare night off the night before last and DS broke a bone in his foot so we ended up in A&E. So much for a relaxing evening in my pjs...
Now Im having to drop off and pick up from school each day because he cant manage the walk home.
Luckily hes at school until 5-5:30 most days at the moment so I dont have to leave the office massively early and Im working from home today which helps.

I always have a massive list of stuff I havent got round to doing. Always 🙄
Like most people, I feel as if Im trying to keep 5000 plates spinning!

I regularly feel like Im just trying to make it through the week!
I work about 80 hours a week and just need a few more hours in a day!

This sounds all too familiar. Every now and then we'll get all caught up with the housework and then within a day or two it's a total mess again!

It really doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things tho does it? As long as the house is hygienic ( and as you haven't mentioned poisoning anyone I assume it is) there's more to life than housework.
Honestly Snowball you need to chill out and be kinder to yourself.

You need a timetable!

I get up at 6:30 with the teenager for school. DH does different shifts so gets up between 5 and 8 depending on his day.

First job - Take a load of washing downstairs and put it on and put the kettle on. Make breakfast for the smalls and do packed lunches. Then go up to the shower. Smalls wash themselves / teeth and get ready.
7:30 - teenager leaves after emptying the dishwasher. Smaller child reloads with all the breakfast stuff and I wipe down the sides.
Hang the washing up on clothes airers. Leave at 8:30 to go to school.

I have mon / tues off work and Monday is my cleaning day. Whole house gets hoovered. Both bathrooms deep cleaned. Beds changed.

I find I have to do one load of washing a day to keep on top of it all.

My kids have to do alot life isn't free! They put their own clothes away, keep their own rooms tidy, do the dishwasher, set the table etc
