SOCS : This Mess Has Me Depressed


For the first time I am linking up to Fadra’s Stream of Consciousness Sunday. Five minutes of raw, unfiltered, and unspellchecked (eek) writing starts now…

My husband took the kids to the park. They are there right now. And before that he had taken them to the grocery store. And before that he had spend three hours in the yard raking leaves and composting them. I have to admit that he is sounding pretty dreamy right now. I would say I don’t know what came over him but I do know.

I am a raving bitch today.

It started last night. I fell asleep reading Dance of the Dragons at 8:30 and woke up at eleven unable to get back to sleep. A million things were running through my mind about all the stuff I needed to get done… blog posts left unwritten, club events left unplanned, chores left undone. I finally settled myself to sleep around twelve. But when I woke up this morning after a perfectly reasonable seven hours of sleep, my head was still scrambled.

The house matches my head. It’s a mess and I think it’s making me depressed.

So I have been on a decluttering kick. Out go the papers, out go the emails, out go the unplayed with toys. Plastic bags be gone. Hopefully once the house is clean; my mind will be too.

Timer goes off and I am done!


  1. Hi 🙂 Visiting from SOC. I totally understand! I want to throw away my house. I recently cleaned my closet and my computer and that felt so good. Next up is the office/dining/living area. Have a great week!

  2. Ooh! Good luck decluttering! My house is amess and I think it too is driving me bonkers! Feel better.

  3. I hear you. I am feeling a massive need to de-clutter my space too. I’m adjusting to the fact that my kiddo no longer naps and the fact that I now have about 30 minutes a day to get everything (cleaning, blogging, scheduling, etc.) done. I pray that some magic organizing solution comes to me soon.

    Hope you are feeling more yourself tomorrow.

  4. When my house is a mess, my mind is a mess. Which is most of the time. I’ve decluttered this year and then again and then again. And I still have more to do. How did I get so much stuff?????
