How is one possibly late to every single thing in one day? How is that possible? My second question is how is that possible before noon?
I wake up at 6:00 AM. I have bible time, prayer time, coffee time, mommy duty time which includes getting the kids fed, lunches made and to school. I get home and usually have a few chores to do.
Today, I happened to have had a few extra things on my list. I had an appointment at 9:45 AM, I had to bring a fruit tray to the class party which began at 10:15 AM and early dismissal was at 11:15 AM and my oldest got out of school at 12:40 PM.
David and I had another appointment at 1:30 PM and Grant’s piano recital was at 5:30 PM. I was late to every single thing EXCEPT the recital thank goodness!!!!
But how??? Maybe one thing. I could handle one thing. But everything? I’m burning at both ends rapidly and I don’t like the outcome.
My job is to take care of my children, my husband and my family including my parents. But I can’t do that if I don’t take care of myself. I do realize that. I definitely don’t want to stress myself out so much trying to be super woman that I end up where I can’t take care of anyone again like I have been before.
Time to watch the warning signs. Take a deep breath. Embrace the things that matter. Like people. Prioritize the tasks that can wait. Like chores.
