Why can’t I get it all done?

Why isn’t my house clean, why aren’t my kids sitting down to have a home type class every day?  Why can’t I be one of those moms that gets up at 5 AM and works so that when the kids get up they can have a nice breakfast and we can spend the day at the park or learning or something and I can feel more accomplished?  I hate that I always feel like I’m failing someone.  As I hand my kids pop tarts in the morning I tend to think I shouldn’t be giving them this they need a healthier breakfast.  As I rush to get dinner done I wonder where my day went and why I feel so frazzled and feel like I’ve been running crazy ALL DAY and have NOTHING to show for it.
In the middle of our home renovation I feel like I’m going to lose it.  My kitchen has been a complete mess..and I don’t mean a few things on the counter I mean my spices are on the floor in the dining room and one of my kitchen cabinets is still sitting on the floor in the living room waiting to be hung back up.  I want so desperately to be the mom who has a cleaning schedule a meal plan and fits in a few minutes each day for a little work out for me…but I just can’t seem to get there.  Some days I really wonder why I try so hard because I can’t ever seem to accomplish my daily goals.
With everything my blog has definitely seen the brunt of my failings.  I want to sit and post deals and I see other bloggers that just seem to do it so well and it really drives me a bit batty that I can’t get that way.
Here is my dream plan lol:
Spend a few days cleaning my entire house top to bottom and it staying clean for more then 5 minutes
After those days setting a cleaning schedule and EVERYONE in my house helping out
Getting EVERYONE to sit down with me to help me meal plan for a week or two or well not quite everyone the 3 and 4 year old would want peanut butter every meal haha
I want to be able to sit down with my kids and just hang out more often..and without electronics.
And why is it the table always seems to collect everything so its a hassle to dig it out to sit down to eat?!?
Sometimes I’d really like to just relax and enjoy the day without feeling guilty!
