I’ve got a lot on my mind.
I can’t seem to stay focused these days.
There’s a lot going on and my to do list seems never ending.
I worry that I’m failing a lot of people.
I suppose it’s stress.
The next week and a half is big for my job. I’ve been on the phone for two weeks trying to get our kiddos placed. Some things are looking good. Other things are a little more dicey. It’s hard. The newest U.S. budget is devastating for poor kids (among others). Sometimes I look at what’s going on and I feel like they are trying to erase the poor, the elderly, and the sick. That terrifies me.
We’re supposed to drive to Oklahoma today to see my brother-in-law’s change of command tomorrow. My husband has given me an out, but I feel like I need to go. I’m supposed to go to Ohio Sunday – Wednesday for work. I want to go. I need to go. But, I’m so stressed about everything I need to get done. I haven’t booked hotels for our trip. I haven’t booked anything for the wedding I’m in next month. It’s like I’m stuck and paralyzed with things I need to do. I think I realized that I’m going to be on the road for 25 days in the next 30 days… and that seems insane right now.
Did I mention my favorite kid is applying to graduate school? Merp.
Good things, good things, I should tell you good things.
I got nothing.
I’ll be back later in the week. In the mean time, tell me your best ways to handle your paralyzing to do list.
