Every weekend I feel like I chasing my tail. I know I’m not alone in this world with this task!!
Being a working mum, life gets busy. Geez, it was busy enough when I worked part time and when I was at home all day with the kids!! These days it’s hard enough to find 5 minutes for a cuppa. It just seems to be never ending!! I have heaps of jobs to catch up on every weekend and it doesn’t seem as though I have enough hours in the day to get it all done.
Just the general stuff is getting a bit boring – cleaning, baking, ironing, gardening, vacuuming, dusting, washing, car cleaning, fridge cleaning, pantry cleaning, window cleaning and probably so many more. I hate it because it takes a heap of time away from the important stuff. I have however found a modicum of balance lately with my bucket. Yes I have a special bucket. Its called the fuck it bucket.
If it just aint working for me it goes in the bucket until I am ready to deal with it. The thing with all these jobs is that they will still be there tomorrow…..always there tomorrow and often or not there are a few more additions to the list. I just plod along nowadays and work through what I can.
My job is prioritising and I can’t forget about the kids. They love to hang out and chill on the weekends so we do that and they are pretty good at helping me with the ING jobs as long as I have a good treat at the end of it!! My treat is just having it all done.
So now that I have shared my ING’s and OUTS with you (and my bucket) hopefully I have helped you in some weird way to deal with your ING challenges too. So I am going to say bye for now as another ING job is calling me – COOKING!!
Keep safe, and make time for you!! If it isn’t working, then pop it in the bucket!!
