Did you ever have that dream.....

Where you are running and running and getting absolutely nowhere?

That's how I feel this last couple of weeks. I feel so overwhelmed and so unequipped to do everything that I want and need to do. Full time job (new and stressful but good), later hours at said job (while I am training), less time with family and especially my son, full time callings at church, the house is a wreck, the car needs some repairs and there are projects on top of my projects that aren't getting done.

This month is getting away from me. I don't have a costume for Blake or even a plan for one. I don't have candy to hand out. I haven't started Christmas shopping. I am coming up short in so many areas. Yes, I know, I am whining. It's just the moment I'm in. It doesn't mean that I don't feel blessed. I do.

To top things off, I'm sick. My chest feels like it has a house sitting on it and my throat is mega sore. I'm not surprise. My son was sick. My immune system usually gets compromised when I'm burning the candle at both ends. I can't even imagine the germs that my hands have come into contact with on the Max (mass transit train) and tis the season for kids to get new bugs going around. It was bound to happen.

Now I'm going to go take my Nyquil and hope for some good sleep tonight. Hurray for Saturday!!

I hate it when life gets so full and I'm so behind that it feels like I'll never catch up. I feel for ya!

Being sick must not be helping much, either. That stinks! Get some rst, get better, and then everything will be so much better.

So sorry. Hope you feel better soon.

I know just how you feel. I've had many times when I feel just like what you've described. It will pass.

I'm so sorry! It's really hard having lots of things pressing on you, even when you're NOT sick! :(

I hope you get lots of rest and feel better (and happier) Soon! :)

So sorry that you are sick! :( I hope your weekend was nice and quiet! And don't worry about your housework... when you get the time, play with your son. The housework will still be there when you're done :)

Weird. Our lives are very different, but we feel very much the same right now. Sick and overwhelmed. I'm stressing about Christmas already too. I think I'm going to grab the Sears catalogue and do it all from there. Simplify. That's what we need to do...prioritize and simplify. ~hugs~

I hope you have gotten some rest and you're feeling better.

You have a lot on your plate, but things will get better--just take it one day at a time.
