I need some input on what to do with the dreadful housework blues. I hate having a dirty and cluttered home. Although I am not a meticulous person, I just like some order to it. I hate it looking like a tornado hit the inside of my house. I get no help, I have a 3 yr old (grandbaby I am raising), I am exhausted 95% of the time. I get depressed looking at it and I have the motivation to get up and just knock it out, but my body doesn't cooperate with my mind. I do just a little and feel like collapsing. I live in a small apt and it seems like it wouldn't be too much to keep up with, but it is. This baby is like a tasmanian devil at taking things out to play with. I am trying to teach her to put things back, but she cries and says she wants to play with it. Any ideas on how to manage household chores better when you feel worn out and depressed? It has to be something I can do myself, not ask of others. I have tried the asking for help route. People say they will, but don't come through.
