Fight The Frump Friday

No Fight The Frump advice from me this week.....I'm not doing a good job of fighting it right now. The weather is hot, the house is a mess (and I have friends coming over Monday AM), and the kids are driving me nuts!

Anjie: Right now

What do you do to make sure you aren't the Frumpy, overworked, underpaid (ha, ha), housewife when you are in this situation? Shopping? OR even better Shoe Shopping? Or do you hire a maid to help clean the house? OR are you all better at getting it together than I am, and you wouldn't be in this situation right now? If so, let me know HOW you get it tried and true method aren't working right now. As of this posting....Mrs. Fussypants didn't have her own Fight the Frump post up....but I may link to her later!

*Edited: Mrs. Fussypants has a great post...check out the other great advice too!

I don't have any advice because I often feel like I'm in your situation. Just know that you're not alone!

I nap. It doesn't go away, but I feel more cheerful after, usually.

We all go through that. This week was hard for me too, so I did a little 'different' type post.

I almost did a post like yours asking for advice cuz I feel like I'm in a rut.

Hang in there. (hugs)

You should splurge on yourself with a manicure or massage.

Thanks for all the advice! I like knowing I am not the only one out there that feels frumpy even when I try hard not to!

I think the massage thing is a great idea.... I may be making an appointment soon!

Hey! We heard you had a blog, so we did a little googling and found ya! Maybe we can stay in better touch this way.
In reference to the post: So, are you saying that even with two kids who are old enough to get round by themselves and entertain themselves, the feeling of being all frumpy and under-appreciated still doesn't go away?? I wish someone told me about that before I signed up for this mom thing. I probably would have still had kids, but I might have felt a little more p[repared, or at least not blown over by this new sensation.

Ooh I know how you feel. It's getting to the point I have more "cleaning the house" clothes than "going out" clothes. That's when I start to feel a bit frumpy and tired. You should have a read zen habits, it's listed in my blogroll. It's helped me a lot in trying to get things in order around the house. It's a far cry from perfect, but at least I can get a shower now without anything catching fire.
