I know exactly, exactly how you feel. There are always memes or conversations about husbands who “can’t see things right in front of them in the refrigerator” or children who lose everything the minute they stop using it. But in my house, that’s me. I’m supposed to be the one who holds it all together, but my mind and my house are cluttered and scattered. I have always been like this but it has really taken a toll on me since becoming a SAHM two years ago. I’m in a messy house all day just trying to get my head above water. And then I carry the guilt and embarrassment of being home most of the day and still not having the executive function or attention/focus to really be productive. Sigh…
