Will Angel Get Her Groove Back?

I have lost my groove. Not like Stella's groove, which I honestly can no longer define for you as it has been way too long since I have seen that movie, but my own personal groove. I am not sure where it went.

I had a routine once upon a time that worked pretty well. It needed tweaked a bit here and there, but for the most part, it helped my household run well. The routine has left the building. I can't quite put a finger on it, but frankly I have lost all ambition. I recently read a friend's blog where she talked about vacuuming before her favorite show came on. I chuckled. I vacuumed last week. One room. Then I was done. The vacuum is still sitting in said room hoping to continue its journey.

The one room that I had perfected and vacuumed has now re-exploded (because I erroneously let my children step foot into it) and despite my chagrin about the way it looked last week verses the way it looks now, I have done nothing to rectify the situation.

How do you get your groove back? Frankly I would love to have a touch of OCD when it comes to the laundry. And vacuuming. And dusting. Stella got her groove back. Will Angel?

LOL! I am so with you, my bff! I was just thinking about that the other day. I used to have a least on Monday. (One day out of 7 ain't bad, right? Right?)

Wanna find our grooves together? Like everyday we do one thing in the morning...and one thing in the afternoon...stopping every 5 minutes for a chocolate or bon-bon? LOLOLOL!

It's a thought. :o)

This is the same Angel who has 5 children. One of whom just turned 1, and we all know one-year-olds are basically cute little Tazmanian devils, right? Right? Really? I am getting better, but my kids are older and I have much less flux in my life than you do. You'll get your groove back. Assign vacuuming to a kid. They will be thrilled with the responsibility... for a week *grin*... but then you just schedule a "chore rotation" and there you are. You'll have clean floors (plus, uncluttered floors and dusted baseboards since you assigned those jobs to your other two very-responsible-children-who-are-ready-for-more-adult-responsibility-in-the-form-of-big-kid-chores) and your sanity back.

And if that doesn't work, you can always look forward to the college years. ;-)

Hmm...I find myself quite addicted to the land of facebook where I idly sit and play all day while dust bunnies float about and juice spills don't get cleaned...although I haven't quite lost the 'groove' as I'm too anal to let it get too bad. Hope you find your routine again soon!

Remember, you went from 3 to 5 kids, that would disrupt anybody's groove!

Maybe in the middle of all those kids are the winter blahhs...they come here too. Try vitamine d drops...rocked my world!
