Can't define the feeling-but this helps

Sunday, August 16, 2009

I woke up this morning, not in a very good mood. My sleep schedule has been off for the last two days. I have gone to bed around 1 am both nights just couldn't sleep.

I have had so many things to do.

Things the last two days:

1. Payday so updated checkbook and paid bills
2. My son decided he wanted my mom's dog to come over so we went and got her
3. Visited with stepdad and mom
4. Inventory food in the house
5. Made a chore list for the men to carry out and divided it up between them
6. Went grocery shopping
7. Bankstatement came in so reupdated checkbook
8. Worked some overtime
9. Helped my stepdad get a new puppy and some items for the puppy and still have a few more items to get
10. the dogs wanted to play as soon as I got up this morning and the boys were in my face and my man called from work all at once
11. Helped youngest learn how to make pancakes
12. Helped oldest with the sausage
13. they ate that and I had my typical breakfast
14. visited with my dad and filled up his medicine-I help him keep track
15. Spent some time with the kiddos

Still have laundry to do and getting more puppy items. Why am I having this feeling? I really think I overwhelm myself.

Just getting this off my chest is helping.

And just a little tidbit... My sons said mom why aren't eating with us. I said I have two meals down pat that is my breakfast and lunch and I don't want to alter them then I will get off this path. Honestly I didn't even have the stomach for pancakes and sausage.

Thanks for letting me vent!

    I wish we could log in when we give our minds a good workout too. Just think of the Sparkpoints you would get. lol
    Teaching the boys to cook and then sitting down with them to eat and STILL eating from your plan. WOW that is sooo wonderful.

    It's easy to get overwhelmed with stuff and at some point in the day you think "WOW". No other words can sometimes explain the things we do. But we just do them! :) You are a pretty amazing mom and you did all that and got it all done and you are great! :) Keep up the good work and vent anytime. Everyone here knows I am always putting my schedules up. I must admit, most of the time it's so I can keep track myself of what I have to do! :)

    Wow, no stomach for pancakes and bacon, sausage? Are u feeling OK? I don't ever buy bacon because I love it. I maybe have it about 4 imes a year. We are going to Eggspectations this Wednesday night for pancake night. We are taking one of my daughter's friend as a goodbye she is off to college. I think I will always have a stomach for pancakes just don't eat them very often at all!

    Giggles, I love that all the things you did revolved around service to others. You didn't have listed there watching hours of TV, or some frivolous thing. Everything on there was about providing a lesson, assisting or just spending time with someone. YOU are a great mom, daughter, employee and wonderfully giving from the heart person! I sure appreciate the kindness you have in your heart! HUGS!

    Hey Giggles! Sounds to me like you are so busy you get overwhelmed. Maybe a to-dp list might help or delegate some responsibilities that the kids can handle. I know, don't let them balance the check book, there may be problems. Well hang in and hopefully things will straighten out. And yes, a walk in the evening may help you sleep better.

    Well, Take Care and Be Blessed and if you can't sleep email me. Maybe that will make you sleepy.

    You have been a busy lady!

    Some days around here are busier than others and I'm always glad to get some jobs over and done with for awhile.

    I think I'd sit down and eat my planned meal with the kiddos too when you can. If they are asking, they probably are missing that.

    Hopefully this week won't be so hectic for you.

    Wishing you the best!

    Life itself can be overwhelming at times. I think it helps us appreciate those slow "nothing to do" days.

    Maybe you can eat what is on your plan at the same time they're eating what they want. You can still sit together and socialize without eating the same thing. The sense of togethernes might help your mood. And adding some walking after dinner might help you fall asleep

    Does it help to have a to-do list that you can check off as you go? For me, the accomplishment of getting things done can be satisfying.
