I am feeling overwhelmed in every conceivable way.

I found these uncovered in the fridge this morning.  

They were supposed to be for dinner last night.

 I still need to unpack all of this.

I still need to unpack all of this.

 I still need to unpack and clean all of this.

  1. NOthing to do girl but jump in and get to chorin'! I heard that on Lonesome Dove and laughed out laugh. Sometimes chorin' sucks, but things just gotta get done.

  2. I have been there! It's truly awful but the good news is that with each chore you get that huge rush of satisfaction. Hard to come by these days.
