I am exhausted. I am frustrated. I am stretched so thin that I am not even sure where to start organizing myself. My to-do list is ridiculously long and my energy is draining!
Every weekend until my birthday in the beginning of April is scheduled already. Between work, birthdays, weddings, showers, and all that other stuff, we have something planned for the next 6 weekends! How did that happen!? I knew that we were booked for awhile but this morning, I just wanted to find some time in the schedule to schedule something else (how ironic!) and realized that no weekends are available and things will just have to get done in the evenings during the week. (Really, I was just trying to find a weekend to spend cleaning my house.)
I have committed myself to this "day job" as well as the small wedding job for July and also for Taste of Home Entertaining all while still being a wife and a mother. Can I handle all of this? Not sure but SuperMom must figure it out---there are people depending on her! So, first things first, I am scheduling (once again) a room to clean each night after Grace is asleep; that way the house gets clean in portions. There may never be a time that the house is completely clean but at least I can show people one clean room at a time! Then I am scheduling "office hours" at home to work on the weddings and Taste of Home. Maybe I will use some weeknight hours as well as a few hours on Sundays to do this. I will alternate cleaning and working in the evenings during the week.
Sounds like a plan right? Well, what I am worried about is that now my life is completely scheduled and I will miss time with my family. Remember those pesky resolutions I made? Well I need time with my husband alone, time with Grace alone and time as a family. So no working or cleaning until 8 pm each night. At least that will give me time between 6 and 8 to spend some time with my fantastic hubby and beautiful daughter.
If someone out there knows how to squeeze 25 hours out of a day, please tell me how!!!!
