In an effort to keep myself blogging at each of my blogs I went searching for blogging challenges and found a few. This one is The Lady Bloggers Society‘s writing challenge. Today’s writing assignment is T-G-I-F – Why this week has been a challenge…so here goes.
As I mentioned earlier, I have a few blogs. Pui Pui Photography (for my Photography business), Yippy Momma, and a Blogger one where I write poetry or anything else that comes to mind. Why so many blogs? I’m starting to wondering myself.
I initially thought it would be best to keep things separate. Especially Yippy Momma and my Photography Blog because my Photography blog is for professional commercial use. I used to write my mom posts on the Blogger site and basically transported those blogs here at Yippy Momma. And I’m actually glad I did because it’s opened me up to a whole new world of possibilities. Being a SAHM it’s tough to remember who I am all the time. I do work thru my photography and met many great people especially the fabulous Stacey Ilyse of Stacey Ilyse Photography.
This week though has been insane. I started feeling discombobulated over the weekend. Feeling very unfocused and completely unorganized. The house is mess. I can’t seem to find time to clean or reorganize. Every time I read a new magazine I see how “beautiful” everyone’s homes are and it makes me feel more disorganized even though I know everything is staged for the shoots. I stumbled over a magazine this week about people’s at-home offices and I have to say I’m drooling. It made me want to get my office reorganized because it’s simply a mess.
I noticed more things over the weekend in the house that are just crazy … everything looks dusty and dirty. The carpet needs vacuuming. I even told my hubby it’s just dirty and the Lil Man is crawling on it all. My hubby jokingly said “No, everything is fine. Just take off your contacts and you’ll see that they are”. I must admit he did make me smile, but it also confirmed that I’m not crazy.. that the house really is a mess and in desperate need of cleaning.
And to top it all off, I haven’t gotten much sleep all week. Basically, my brain and body are utterly exhausted, so it just all makes things worse.
What am I going to do about it? Do what I do best. Get organized. I have all these lists for each of my blogs of things I need to get done that seem to keep growing because I keep adding. Before I can get to those lists, I need to clear my mind. And the only way I can do that is by cleaning the house and reorganizing things. So, this weekend, I’m going to clean and redo my office. Move some furniture around, go to the Container Store to get new bins. Once that’s done, then next week … down to the nitty gritty and crank out my to-do lists for every blog, but alternating days. One day – one blog. I know I can do it.
