I am at my wits end and so is my husband. We have many arguments about how chaotic and non-organized our home is and how hard it is to get started. We have always struggled with organization.
I don't know what to do. I feel like I need some direction. I want an organized home that is clean and simple and is easy to keep it that way. It stresses us both so much and on top of that we have a seventeen month old son that has special needs so he takes a lot of our time. I hear that professional organizers are very expensive and we don't have a lot of money to pay for them.
At the moment I am ill and have strict doctors orders to rest. My husband has been extra grouchy because the home isn't impecable and things are not getting done around the home that I usually get done, but lately haven't been because I am sick. I have been sick for a month and husband is frustrated because he gets stressed out and is complaining that he is tired of me being ill. (I have an enlarged spleen and glands and found out I have mono) By the way, husband has no sympathy for sick people and usually gets upset when he hears about it. His mother has been sick all of his life and he is tired of hearing about sickness. So this isn't something I can change about him.
He is upset because the unorganized home is stressful and now he is having to take care of our son in the evening. He complains about it every night. I feel like I need to nix the doctors orders and just do the things that need to be done just to keep from arguing with him. It is so exhausting to argue with him.
I don't know what to do and need some advice how to manage this situation.
