Tackle it Trouble?

Okay Ladies! I do not know if this happens to anyone else, but it seems I continue tackling the same thing every week... I am always behind, and am tired of it! Will this feeling ever go away? Will I ever be the Suburban Superwoman that my heart longs to be?! You know the one in Titus 2... the sensible, pure, worker at home, who is kind, submissive and honorable.



I did three sink loads of dishes, and folded another couch full of laundry today... then I rammed my toes into the wall while climbing over the safety gate in our kitchen. And was out of commission because my toes were painfully swollen.

Will there ever be hope for me? The answer is YES! My husband is currently having me go through Psalm 121 and I have been very encouraged so far, because God tells me He will be my help, He will not allow my foot to slip, and He will not slumber. But it's a two way street, I have to let him help me... so here I am Lord, willing and ready, send me, even if it is only to do more laundry.

Popping in from the Tackle it Tuesday linky...

I know EXACTLY how you feel! My tackle is the same every week as well, I just find something else to add to the pile every week so as not to put it out there on the internet where I'll be held accountable!

You have reminded me that I'm accountable whether I publish it or not.

Oh dear, I hope your toes feel better. That sounds really painful.

I MUST have a positive attitude also.

I'm am about to start my Tackling since I cannot sleep and the kids aren't awake to mess up the place while I clean.

Sometimes I feel just like you do! It seems like I can never catch up and even if I do manage to finish everything on the list, there are new things added as soon as I wake up the next morning!! But, be encouraged by the things that you do finish and know that every little bit is a step in the right direction.

Whew! It's so good to know I'm not the only one trying to tackle the same problem areas each week. If I just get the laundry caught up today and an empty sink at the same time, I will call that a huge accomplishment.

I can totally relate. It just gets so overwhelming sometimes. I know it is an ongoing process and you can never get "caught up", but it is still frustrating.

Good luck with keeping it together this week! You can do it (and so can I).

I hope your toes feel better. I like your bog and will be back for a visit. I know how you feel about getting caught up.

Awww man...sore toes make things so hard!! I've got a big chair of laundry...and yep, it's laundry almost every week for me!!

Linda said...

OUCH! Sorry about the toe.

Seems I am always tackling the same things also. (off to read some Psalms now!)

It sucks feeling like we do the same things over and over and over! I feel the same way you do! I feel like there is always a pile of dishes to do and an even bigger pile of laundry! Good luck!

I think it is perfectly common to feel like you never feel like you get caught up on the same tasks. I sometimes believe my laundry lives by the motto "go forth and multiply". I am thankful that my DH knew before he married me that I was not a "domestic diva".
