A Confession

I have not been grocery shopping in three weeks. Yes, three weeks.

Which is kind of expensive if you only buy enough groceries for one week at a time. We have been eating out way too much. I had every intention to use the menu I made. But it just seemed to fall through the cracks, so to speak.

Coupons have not been clipped in weeks. With the exception of clipping this past Monday night. I have a six inch stack of inserts just begging for some attention.

My house resembles this. Laundry has been kept up enough to wear clean clothes every day. At least that's a plus!

The last three weeks have been an emotional roller coaster. But it is time to start putting my house back in order. You see, I clean my house if I think the UPS guy might walk in. I hate having a dirty house and I get embarrassed easily.

"What will they they of me?"

I am way too worried about what people think of me.

But... tonight is the night. I need to at least make a dent in this ever growing list of things to do.

In fact, I must clean tonight. We re-listed our house, with a lower price, and about ten realtors are going to come take a peek at it tomorrow.

This weekend I will go grocery shopping. With my clipped coupons.

Hopefully, a sense of normalcy will start to take affect. One can only hope.

Any confessions you would like to share?

I can't blame you at all for feeling this way....I haven't been much for cleaning either. I hate to clean but love the satisfaction of it being cleaned. I mean I dread it..I have to talk myself into cleaning the house, but afterwards a huge load is lifted

I understand exactly where you are coming from. I feel like I'm emotionally unattatched from the rest of the world...and it's really taking it's toll on me. Things can only get better :)
