It's my day off. Should I have signed up for overtime? I really need to clean the house. It's been ignored a lot lately. Back to school shopping is right around the corner so the extra money would be good. No, I can't work today. My daughter wants me to be there to watch her cheer performance. She made All American. So glad I was there.
There is so much laundry to do. I can't remember the last time that the clothes were folded and put away. How are there so many dirty dishes? There's only been three of us at the house for the past couple of weeks. The grass needs mowed again. Didn't we just mowed the grass? I got the bushes trimmed by the back door. We don't live in a jungle anymore.
My son moves back into the dorm tomorrow. Did we get everything on his list? I hope financial aid will be enough to cover the costs. Maybe I should have tried to pick up the early shift. I could have done that before heading down to Cincinnati.
I was so behind on the laundry. I'm glad I stayed home today to get stuff done. I actually folded all the clean clothes today. Why is the washer leaking? Hopefully it won't quit on me. How long have we had this washer? Maybe I just need to check the drain.
The house smells so fresh and clean. I washed the dogs blankets and vacuumed the hair off the couch. The dog really needs to have her eyes fixed. I just don't know when I'll be able to afford the surgery. I guess it will have to wait until after the wedding. The wedding is just a few months away. I really need to order Madison's dress. I definitely need to pick up some overtime. Maybe next week I can work a little extra. I wonder if I should work on my day off? I would really love to have a day to just sleep and be lazy. Maybe I can do that once school starts.
I'm done cleaning for today. I didn't get everything done that I wanted to. But the house looks a little less cluttered. I'm glad I swapped shifts for Sunday. I hated giving up a couple of extra hours but now I can go to church and have lunch with the kids.
Ok I really need to figure out what's going on with the washer. I think it is the drain. Next week's schedule is really busy. Maybe I can work one of my off days and get the overtime. There are so many bills to pay. There are so many activities for the kids coming up. My brain is tired. My body is tired. My heart is tired.
But I must keep going. I just have to keep finding balance.
