It is amazing to me how fast I fall into being overwhelmed by the tasks at hand with this bunch of kids. I begin the day a rational being and then an hour or so goes by and just being conscious and looking around the house brings out the ADD in me and "how in the world to prioritize THIS day?" syndrome. The hubby fashioned a crude bookshelf for the basement over the weekend and I can not wait to tackle getting books and such off of surfaces and filling that puppy up. Many thanks for the shelves!!!! I attempt the FlyLady principles but still can't quite get taking one thing at a time. I am not sure how other people get a handle on their large families and I don't suppose their plights are much brighter. Turning my head to prayer helps and staying on top of food in their bellies also helps. Taking one hour at a time is a nice goal. Not starting new projects before the present projects are done also helps but of course is not as fun. Self discipline. Ugh. Breathe. Focus on what is going right. Hugging and squeezing the baby helps too. Onward.
