Overwhelmed

I don't know why I do this to myself. I let things back up and get out of control and then I scramble to "fix" them. I'd feel so much better if I could just keep on top of things. I start to work on something and then get sidetracked. I wish I were more organized. It's frustrating to watch people who can look at something and just organize it. Too much stuff. Rowan's 5th birthday is in 7 days and I still don't know what to do. What's so hard about writing up a few invitations and deciding on a place and time? Beats the hell out of me I don't know why I'm so bloody incompetent. It'll all turn out fine in the end but a semi-clone would be mighty handy. Or Martha Stewart. Or just her brain. Any brain? If you've got a spare let me know. This is the "easy" thing to organize there are a zillion other things clamoring for my attention and here I sit at 1:00 a.m. blogging instead of doing any of them or sleeping. Sleep would be nice. I fell asleep on the couch and Al sent me to bed and I woke right up. I don't feel like I deserve to do anything fun until my "must do" list is taken care of.

With three kids, I'm not surprised you've got so many things on your plate. Try and make sure that one of those items is to give yourself some time to relax.

I'm the same way myself and sometimes I need to remember that the most important thing is to spend time with my children or my wife. Mostly, the other stuff can wait.

Hey! Relaxing and sleeping are important too! Especially for a mom, so "budget" that to-do list and make some time for yourself.

I know, I know.. easier said than done.

I was just thinking about you this morning and hoping that you are feeling a little less overwhelmed today.
