Do you ever feel completely incompetent?

As I look around my house tonight, I feel like I am completely incompetent to handle my job. I cannot take care of the kids, the house, my husband, the animals, and myself. I just cant handle it. The house is always a mess. The dog poop needs scooped, the fish tank and bird cages need cleaned... I am in way over my head. Tonight I am sick and exhausted, and I know that is a big part of why I feel overwhelmed, but I just keep thinking when I had a "real" job, atleast I knew I was good at it. It may been relatively meaningless, but I was good at it. I didn't always have this doubt that I was doing everything wrong. I keep expecting things to get easier, but I just keep getting buried under more piles of laundry, and now instead of a sweet peaceful baby I have a 3 year old whos new favorite saying is "OH FU**" and a 2 year old who lives to dump red juice on my white carpet. Guess I just needed to vent a little - I'm ready to tackle the scattered toys before bed, so I can vaccuum first thing in the morning...
