my house is a mess

It should not come as a surprise to me that my house is a mess but it does. How does it get this way? is what I think to myself but I should know that the answer is: because I don't clean it!! Or at least I don't clean the house often enough to enjoy it in it's clean state. Also with all the sleep deprivation I forget what I have cleaned and what still needs to be done.

For example I went to use our 2nd floor bathroom and was baffled by it's condition. Once I took the time to think about it I honestly couldn't remember when I had last cleaned it. This is disconcerting for me because it means my brain cells have yet again decreased with this last pregnancy. I think it would actually be dangerous for my mental health to have another baby. I have heard that for people who feel their mental activity is slowing down it is recommended to learn a new language. I'm already doing that and it's not showing any good results or maybe it has helped save brain cells that would otherwise have been decimated by pregnancy. It's a toss-up. I'm going to have to resort to making a chart or using index cards to keep my chores on track until I come out of this postpartem fog.

I have two words for those of you who think that this will never happen to you and you'll be way more together after you have your kids: Wishful Thinking!

Good thing we stopped at two kids or I'd probably be forgetting my name right about now...wait, what is my name?!? If it makes you feel any better, my house is a disaster and I only have two children, none of them brand-new. I actually used valuable cleaning time yesterday and threw it away by sitting and watching "Desperate Housewives" and "Studio 60". Mom must be so proud.
