To do list that is!
Anyone else have a HUGE to-do list?? I feel like I'm getting no where even after spending past 2 days whenever the kids are sleeping to work on it :/
I'm deep cleaning the house and organizing stuff so there's a ton on there from that alone (getting into every nook and cranny and scrubbing the whole house down in and out top to bottom). I have to fix up my ds's old bed for my sister, Sunday were going to a BBQ and the list keeps getting long of what I need to bring (which means more shopping), I am trying to prepare for court so have to get all of that stuff together and mentally prepare myself, today's payday so I have to sit to pay bills and grocery shopping before Saturday, have a birthday party to prep for, my in laws will be here in barely a month & I'm sure there's plenty I missed

I'm just feeling crazy overwhelmed today. I have lists and a rough schedule of what day stuff is happening and/or needs to be done by but none of its seemed to help any :(

Thatsvhow I am with daily things but most of these are important and HAVE to get done/taken care of so there's no way to talk myself out of it... Which is one reason why for the second night this week I'm pulling an all nighter :/

I have a ton of stuff to do too, and I don't even have a list.  You can take comfort in the fact that you're way ahead of me.  Take it one thing at a time, starting with the most important and time sensitive.  Anyone who can help you complete some of these tasks?

I've been going by my calendar as to what needs to get done first, like deep cleaning has to be done first, prepping for court as far as paperwork has to be done by a certain date, party prep a certain date, etc.
Something's are domino effect type things like I have to complete task a before task b even though task b is technically more important... If that makes sense? Sleep deprived brain + no coffee makes things make sense in my head then when written or said sound stupid as heck haha
Dh is going to help out this weekend and take care of some of the outside things and while he's doing it take the kids and dogs out with him so I can run the carpet cleaner, steam mop, etc without worrying someone will come run across it (hard to use a carpet cleaner while they're asleep since I need to do their rooms lol) but otherwise its basically just me and the kids :/
