This Place is Getting Too Small Already (And I Might Be Fat)

This house is a mess. Not just a little messy. It needs a top to bottom cleaning. I call this kind of cleaning a furniture moving experience. And this house is in desperate need of a furniture moving experience. The problem is I don't have the will to begin. Nor the time to finish. Mess and clutter give me anxiety. I (metaphorically) stand in the middle of the family room and just wring my hands. It doesn't help that the family room is the only bit of living space in this little house. I might lose it. Or just sit in the middle of this mess and eat leftover quiche and watch some TV.

Also, I weighed less six months after giving birth than I do now. To make matters even worse, I weighed less six weeks after giving birth than I do now. This is not a good situation and I really need to do something about it. But again, I am lacking motivation.

I could have written this post myself. My house is a DISASTER. I still have yet to finish dealing with the Christmas aftermath, and by that I'm not even referring to the decorations, but just the general MESS of the kids new gifts etc.

Clutter gives me MAJOR anxiety, and I've been meaning to do the kind of deep-cleaning where you clean out cabinets etc. and call Big Brothers and Big sisters and ask them to bring the largest truck available for pick-up.

Much like my body, my house needs a huge overhaul. I have definitely packed on the pounds over the holidays. Stay tuned for my post about how my body is longer 65% water. It's now 65% processed cheese substance.

Try Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. It's only 30 min and works your ass right off. Really you can see it laying on the floor!

Following you now!

Hey Martinis! Thanks for the follow. I love your blog. I thought about doing the shred but 30 days is a BIG commitment, in my opinion. Why can't there be a 48 hour shred? Now, that would be WICKED!

I know what you mean about losing some pounds, but it's a new year! That's good motivation, right?

And thanks so much for stopping by Theta Mom!!!

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

Geez, annonymous, thanks for the back-handed compliment. Now I feel like a total loser. Nothing like getting your self-esteem kicked in the teeth first thing in the morning.

Amie said...

oh and I spelled anonymous wrong. Wow, I suck.

Amie said...

Also, I think this is one of my more boring posts which is why I have less readers than I used to. But then, at least I have you to crush me.

Existential Waitress said...

I still think you're awesome and never boring. Loves you. ;)

I am 99.9999999% sure that anonymous is not a real person. I occasionally get comments like that and they are always spammers or otherwise robotic.

Amie said...

Annika, that seems about right and would make this day even more absurd, fitting.

Okay, I just read the comment that sent you over the edge and I now understand why. Anonymous is super rude. I'm sure they were in their less than tactful kind of way trying to say that you are AWESOME, but they are stupid. Don't feel bad. And by the way, I am FAT. Fatter than ever. Motherhood makes people fat. It's not our fault.

PS One more thing. I think Anonymous might have some kind of weird grade school style crush on you. You know the kind where they pull your pigtails and tell you that they hate you but what they really mean is "I love you and want you to be my future wife." Get a life, Anonymous. And grow up.
