Well, I was all set to have another post go today, but, you know, kids. I swear this has been one of those weeks where I do not stop moving until I lay down to go to bed. So, instead of my scheduled post (coming at you next week, so check back!) I figured this is a perfect week to dish out some Confessions with Danielle!

I confess..

I don’t know how to keep the house clean. I seriously come home, feed my children, bathe my children, do laundry, tidy up the kitchen, and it is somehow time for bed. When in the world do people find time for things like cleaning the floors and scrubbing toilets!? I feel like I am just constantly trying to keep my head above water. Keeping it real, we were kind of slobs in our old house. Now that we are in our new house, I want to keep things as clean and in as good of condition as possible, but I swear there aren’t enough hours in the day!

I made a return at Old Navy, and found a dress in my size (Tall, so it was a return), marked an additional 75% off of its sale prize. You guys, I got it for five dollars. So I bought a dress instead of coffee. And felt like I won the lottery.

I am so tired. Like, ridiculously tired. I think about sleeping and get giddy with excitement, and then I quickly get super sad because I know that it won’t happen. I seriously, seriously have debated every single day this week taking some PTO and going home while the kids are at daycare and just sleeping. But instead I just keep trucking along.

Echoing what Lindsay confessed last week, the follow/unfollow game on Instagram is so obnoxious. I would love to build my following, but personally just have no desire to follow a thousand random pages just so those people will follow me back. If you follow me because you expect a follow back, and then unfollow me the next day..just no. I love instagram, but sometimes it seems ridiculous!

I kind of fail at blogging lately. I have the best of intentions, but there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Most days, when I find myself with a magical hour that I could actually punch out a good post, I find myself sitting on the couch, staring at the wall. And enjoying it, because there are no little hands clawing at my hair or demanding to be fed.

I need a vacation. I don’t care where, but I need a vacation.

I realize these confessions basically turned into a declaration that I am overtired and a little burned out this week 😉 But that’s what these are for, right!? Cheers to tomorrow being Friday!

Also linking up with Annie today!

    I refuse to follow a million different pages and I won't let just anyone follow me. I am super picky about who sees my stuff on IG. I also feel ya on the being tired thing!

    I hate the follow/unfollow game, too. I didn't even realize it was a thing until the same person has requested a follow more than once. Sounds like you do need to take the pto day to just relax and refresh yourself!

    Seriously I don't know how Mama's do it. I have fur children and I can barely find the time to keep my house clean, laundry done and cleaning toilets who has time for that? Major KUDOS to you, you are doing an amazing job!Also, agreed on the vacation. I just want to go somewhere and sit with a cocktail in hand and a good book!

    I totally agree with the whole Instagram thing. It bugs the snot outta me! Lol. If you don't wanna follow me, don't follow me; I'm not going to be a brat about it!

    Also, I really appreciated the real-ness of this post; I hope you get some rest soon!

    Girl – house cleaning? Just no. Nope nope and nope. Don't feel bad, because I literally just cleaned our toilets the other day for the first time in ohhhh, probably six or seven weeks. When you work full time and have kiddos and have life to tend to, cleaning just goes by the wayside.

    And Insta? YEP. SO. ANNOYING.

    What? I didn't realize follow/unfollow was a "thing" on instagram. That seems really lame. Also, did I just age myself by saying "lame"? And I feel you on tired. Two kids, grad school, planning birthday parties, and trying to keep up with all the household chores. Shew. Hope you take some time for you! 🙂

    Haha. I am sooo tired as well. I get excited when I think about sleep too, but then one of the girls gets sick and coughs all night which means they wake up a bunch. It's an awful cycle. We need sleep. I am constantly cleaning too and there is always a mess to clean. I don't know how some women do it. Score on the Old Navy dress!!!
