Starting Again

It never ceases to amaze just how quickly Monday keeps popping up.  I don't even want to think about how many weeks I have sat down to do my Me & YOU post with Karlee at The Mother Experiment.  I am physically shuddering at the thought of just how many weeks it has been now.  It may possibly even be months by now.

No doubt when I click on over to link up I will find out.  Speaking of passing weeks actually quite a few weeks have passed since I joined Sarah at Accepting and Embracing Autism for her Monday Goals...

(little sigh, deep breath, head shake)

Life has been more than just a little busy of late.  
Actually, there is a part of me that does not feel very comfortable with that statement.  

Sure there has been a bit going on (change of weather sickness, grand final games, school performances) but really compared to some, my life this past week(s) was not really hectic or thrown into any true chaos.   Certainly not enough to justify why I have still struggled to maintain establish anything that even comes close to resembling order.

Yes I do have three kids so obviously to a certain extent that keeps me occupied as well as creates the disorganisation that is my life but I see other people somehow manage to juggle with it all so it is not impossible.  In fact my own mother made it all seem rather simple and she did stuff I would never even come close to be able doing like ironing!

(Exhale grrrrrrrr, inhale peace and tranquility)

Week after week I feel like I am just sitting here saying the same things over and over.  Making the same silly excuses  Week in week out. Really I could make excuses till the cows come home (should they ever actually decide to return home of course) as to why my house is the shambles that it is, but at the end of the day we all know what the problems are.  A delicate balance of laziness and procrastination mixed with an addiction to time wasting and bright screens.

Well no more excuses.

As of right now I am going to try just a little harder to ensure my kitchen doesn't look like this

or this

All week long

Thankfully the ever wonderful Hubs got busy last night while I was putting kidlets to bed (read laying down having a rest while they fell asleep) so I am off to a good start once I jump off here and get to the breakfast dishes that is...

Seriously though, I am constantly thinking about this whole improvement thing.  Without being too critical there are quite a few areas that I should be doing better in and to tell you the truth I am not really sure why that it is.   I have taken to asking if I really am being the best me that I could be as that is what I ask the girls to be and I am not sure I could honestly say that I am even trying to be the best me I could be.  So it is with that in mind that I will try and steer myself through the week with.

Head over to TME to join in and read how others are going on their personal growth journey and don't forget to come back next week to see how I went
