Just frustrated - no other way to explain it!

I really don't have a question, more of a need to vent for a minute or two! We recently moved into a new home (love the home) but I am finding it hard to do everything I want to do (the decorating mainly) with my kids! I feel pulled in so many different directions, I should be cleaning, cooking, putting boxes away, spending time with the kids playing, organizing the house. But I just can't seem to get a grip on things.
For example right now all three are down for naps - however the older two are fighting me on taking naps. They take one everyday so this is nothing new. I am sitting at the computer trying to find a few organizational things for the house but I can't sit for more then a few minutes before one of them calls me for something. And then tomorrow is my daughter's first birthday and I feel like I should be doing more for her. We are having a small dinner tomorrow night with some family and the party is next weekend.
I guess it is that I feel there are so many things I should be doing I am just having a hard time doing them. Basically nothing out of the ordinary!

Know how you feel. Today has been a frustrating day for myself as well for various other reasons. I also know how that feels moving into a new home and loving it but trying to make it the home you invision. It took us about a year or 1 1/2 yrs. to just get boxes unpacked (stuff hubby and I have from college and HS are still in boxes just in the storage room). Decorating is still being worked on. Anyway I know that sometimes just talking about your frustration and knowing that someone heard you helps. So I just wanted to let you know I read your post and could relate to your day. Hopefully the rest of our day will go a bit better.

I just finished about a years worth of diy home renos and now we are selling. I kept company down to a minimum and would write a list of 5 things I wanted to accomplish everyweek that way I could do something almost everyday but there is always days where the kids don't want to cooperate so you have 7 days to do 5 things on a list.

(if my 2 1/2 year old son won't have a nap he has to either play quietly in his room or do his number, letter and shape work book at the table)
