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!
