In The Middle of Things

I have been completely overwhelmed lately.  Winter. Organization. Messes. Daily Tasks. Momhood.  Usually when I get stressed, I just shut down.  I don't do anything and procrastinate everything.  I don't know why this is happening now, nothing has really changed.  I am still working part-time, two weekends a month.  I have more time now during the day then I have had in twelve years.  The kids are in school.  I do a little volunteering and a small bit of work daily; but the rest of the time is mine to do what I need to.  And I don't want to do anything.
In the past when I have become this way, I usually make a list.  Today a list was even too much. 
Is it seasonal depression? My thyroid? Or just i-want-to-stay-in-bed-and-read-all-day syndrome?  I don't really know, but I want to shake it! 
One thing I know that usually helps is creating something. Anything.  But that has even been a no-go.  My basement studio {corner} is a mess.  It is making Hoarders look so, so mild.  I just wanted to type it out.  What should I do? Where do I begin? 
One area that overwhelms me on a daily basis is the way I am documenting life, our life, the life of this little family of mine.  I feel so 'behind' or that I am missing so much.  Last year I only printed one set of photos and the rest are on the computer.  I want to embrace the concept of 'project life'.  I wanted to save the menu that Craig brought home from his trip to Texas; and the program from the play we went to see last week that starred a little friend of ours.  But I just didn't want to add it to the drawer of papers, and I didn't want to start a new folder. So I just threw them both away. Ever since my personal printer broke indefinitely, I haven't printed a single picture.  I look back on pictures just from earlier this year and want to print and document.  But I have so many pictures already printed that need a home.  Need to get out of the bags and the boxes and have their stories told first.  I really have never been a fan of chronological scrapbooking, but I feel that I cannot move forward without bringing some closure to the past.  It is late, and I am not sure this post is even making any sense.  I guess I just feel in the middle of something, even though I am not sure what that is.

I have been home for a week now.  Time flies! I have so much to catch up on, I am always running behind.  Here is The Story Matters February Kit: Housewife In Love. 
Sorry about the pictures of the layouts.  I know they are not perfect.  Working out a few bugs with my big camera so I had to use my point and shoot.  I have so much to share about my trip to California.  It was good.  It was warm.  But I missed my family, more that I thought I would.  I realized this when I was in Los Angeles and it was so nice, and all I wanted was to be home where they were 'snowed in' while it was an epic blizzard outside.  I love home.
