I'm a princess in a dungeon...

That's what i texted my husband yesterday after my nephews left the entire house so messy. I was dressed up (called by my beautiful mood) for my husband that's why i looked like a princess but oh the house! Anyway, today is much worse. I am still in my pajamas, have only brushed my teeth and washed my face, and the house is a total mess and i just couldn't care less. I feel sluggish today and i could not believe myself being able to type here with my sons running around, the floor has couscous sprinkled all over, laundry waiting to be hanged, bedroom looks like it's been ransacked by thieves, kitchen has pile of dirty dishes and the floor is a mosaic of cornflakes, cookie crumbs, and the like. The boys' nap time will be an hour from now (it's 1:30 pm)and i could not seem to get off my butt and do the chores. Do you have days like this too?

almost everyday our house is like that and just now, my dirty laundry is piling up so high and still I have not yet felt the urge to do the laundry, maybe tomorrow or maybe not. And the kitchen is so messed up coming from yesterday's menu and the floor is sticky with milk spills and I have not taken a bath since yesterday and yet I feel as if my fingers are so eager to type in here in mylot. No energy to tidy up and yet I am here at mylot

It's like getting stuck in a rut and for a change re-create the rut. And we're still in a rut. Funny but at least there's a little change. Maybe my system is calling for some change and thus this dungeon.

It is soooo nice to hear that you have days like that too. Sometimes I can use the computer to just zone out! Usually after a day (or sometimes even two - shame on me!) I will regain my energy and interest level again and just take off doing all sorts of work again. I think it just comes with the territory. Kids, the husband, housework, and all the sameness of being home can get to a person. I think that is to be expected and normal. Enjoy your "Jammie Day"! The housework will be there again tomorrow (and the day after that, and the day after that, and the..............). Re-energize yourself and cut yourself some slack for awhile. It's not like you can just finish your work as a mom either. There is always something to be done (24 hours a day). So we get our mini-vacations thru our "jammie Days", right?

Yes, i realize it is nice to have days like this after all. And i thought i would not be able to sleep thinking of things undone. Now it's back to normal but i surely will forgive myself for wanting another Jammie Day. Thanks!

You are doing the most important job there is. Being a mommy! Even mommies need to "veg-out" once in awhile so that we will be better mommies!

Yes, be "bad" for a while so we can be better. This is a quite reasonable mood. Mommies rock!
