My house keeping duties are lacking I get so depressed and in crisis mode I can not move usually. Today has been one of those days. It does get better though and things have a way of working out. Just go with the flow ans the house work will always be there waiting patiently Lots of hugs

Being untidy, and I am, can really get me down. I find it so hard to feel motivated.

But really. Does it matter?

Look after yourself and if you don't look at the mess it will look after itself. xx

Fighting the dirt in the house and yard is a never-ending battle, which ultimately feels pointless...you just can't win. I try to do a little every day, no matter how bad I am feeling, just to keep ahead of it all.

My house is a total mess.
There isn’t one decent room.

I try to do things if I get the motivation, but it always
ends up looking worse.
I don’t know why, but it’s always been the same with me.

This makes me feel more depressed and worthless.
That makes it harder to try again.

I know people say just do a small part each day.
I know this is right but I can’t.
It’s all or nothing.

I flutter from one area to another every time.
Then I get so tired and push it all back.
Thus making it worse.

I have so much clutter and I’m a hoarder.
Obviously both make things worse.

Sorry this has turned out such a long post but the thread
really rang a bell for me.
