Do you ever feel like you're drowning in...everything. In your to-do list. In your shopping list. In the to-do list in your head that you don't even have time to write down. In the things that you've been dying to do and are just waiting for things to 'calm down' so you can just think about doing them. Am I the only one that is constantly feeling this way? I'm always catching myself wishing for a day, just one day that I can have free all to myself so I can play catch-up. But let's be honest, a day? That would be a marvelous start but I don't think it would get me to where I want to be.
There are so many hours in one day, how can I feel this way? Am I really wasting away so much time that I'm not even noticing where all of my time is going? I know all about time management. I know that you should schedule time for things and have everything planned out, all the little boxes filled in. I get it. It's a marvelous idea, I've done it a number of times. And it always looks good on paper but paper can't compensate for cranky, teething babies, or my 3-year old begging me to just do nothing but play cars and focus all of my attention on him. And I do those things. I put everything down for Myra and Cason. I really enjoy playing with them. I don't want to constantly be cleaning and running errands when I can be home or out and about with them making memories. Know what I mean? I try to spend time in all areas of my life. But I almost feel like I'm spread so thin that there's not a lot of left of me by the end of the day.
But then how do I stay on top of it all? How do I do everything I want to do and still be the mother I want to be? Maybe that's just it...maybe you can't have both. Maybe that's just one of the amazing things that make mothers so amazing? I know mothers are constantly making sacrifices for their children, maybe this is one of those things? She sacrifices all of her time and being able to do everything she needs and wants to do.
Eh. I dunno. I'm probably just rambling at this point but I hate this feeling of being constantly behind on everything. House work. Work work. Things I really want to do. Being the type of friend I want to be...everything! The list is so long. Do you feel this way? What do you do to help stay on top of things? Maybe there's a tip out there that I'm missing, that I need to be doing? I'd love some help on this one! Maybe there's a magical drink that could slow down time and give me an extra 5 hours a day? Or maybe a pill that can freeze frame every 7 days just to give me one. Wow! Wouldn't that be amazing?! Do you ever find yourself wishing that you didn't need to sleep for 7 hours every night? I so wish I could operate off of 4 hours of rest. Just think that would be give me an extra 3 hours a night! 21 hours a week! Almost an extra full day! Man, when I say that my mind races of all of the things I could get done in 21 hours all to myself!! Whoa, doesn't that just make your mind go crazy?! Does anybody else every wish or hope for crazy things like this? Haha, maybe I should just get back to cleaning the bathroom while the kidlets are still passed out.
Thanks for listening :)
