Yesterday I took a personal day off. Just for me. I wasn't sick, I wasn't feeling bad, I wasn't anything really except for overloaded in my brain and our house was out of control. In order to get a little bit of normalcy back, I took the day off.
As it was the first time I've ever done anything like that, I was pretty proud of myself. I even got some things done! Sure, not as much as I'd hoped, but it's definitely better in our living room and bathroom. It's still going to take an army to get us organized, but baby steps for now will keep us sane.
