Don't forget y ou also adopted a baby in the midst of things. That alone takes all sorts of energy.

I see your posts sometimes and I say to myself why is she doing all that? Clothes never have to be folded. Babies can learn very quickly to put their toys into baskets. Very little new stuff needs to be bought and garage sales especially have tempting prices but the more stuff brought in the more to deal with later. I would have a minimal amount of clothing for the baby, which is going to outgrow anyway. Same with toys. They don't need that many and their IQ is not going to suffer with fewer toys. As long as they are clean and fed and get outdoors to run around, they are generally quite happy and develop quite well. Take lots of naps and let others care for your grandmother. Your focus just has to be your health, your baby and your husband. I would not bring any pets or additional animals into the equation for now. Simplify and flourish. mg
