self portrait tuesday - enclosed spaces

spt - enclosed spaces
there are days when the duties of keeping house are just too much. you know those days? when you walk in the door from work, and immediately it fees like the house itself is has interlaced its fingers and is slowly closing them, shutting you in. laundry here, dishes there, shoes all over the place. i hate this feeling, it suffocates me. it makes me want to fling my arms out, scoop up piles of junk and dump them into the trash. forget cleaning, lets just get rid of stuff, any stuff, just get rid of it. who needs it? i hope i do not. i like to think i do not, but still it creeps around, filling the house, closing in on me.

Oh wow! I feel you so much on this. My 3 little ones make it virtually impossible to keep anything clean for longr than an hour. It sucks, I clean it and then it is dirty again. I usually feel like What is the point??? But its one of those things that I have to get done anywyas... ERG! Love the shot BTW, the colors are beautiful.

My oh my how I can relate to this. My little one is 11 weeks....add in the daddy and a crazy cat and it's almost like having three children. I can only imagine what it's like for you. Really nice shot though! ^_^

Oh god, yes, the stuff. How I hate the stuff. I mean, I love the stuff (some of it) and mostly don't want to throw it away (especially the stuff that isn't precisely mine), I just wish it was GONE.

lovely picture. (see you don't need a d50 to take lovely pix, but you still want one, i can tell!)

maybe clean one room and then bunker down in there? or just chuck it all, that usually works too.

you know,I really don't struggle with clutter and mess around here. each of my children have a list of chores that they gladly accomplish each morning upon waking at dawn-- while i gather fresh vegetables and cut flowers from our garden.
hannah. i feel you. to my core, i feel you. if you called me on the phone right now to talk about this topic, i'd probably break down sobbing. i feel you.

by the way,are you sitting in your kitchen sink? b/c that's what i'm seeing in this picture.

I love this photo! I have that feeling all too frequently (we actually have a name for it around here- mama's "burn the house down" feeling!), and I usually blame it on putting three people (one of them pregnant) in 330 sq ft, but I think we really just have too much stuff. Thanks for a look at real life. :)

Oh I love this photo! I immediately know how you are feeling from what you say but also can't shake the idea of how fun it must have been to sit on the kitchen counter and stick your feet in the water :)
