2-minute post, mas o menos

I'm at a place, currently, where I feel I can say this objectively:

I am overwhelmed.

Not even in a feel-sorry-for-myself way. (That was a couple-a days ago.)

More of an I-have-so-much-stuff-on-my-agenda-the-only-thing-I-can-do-is-sleep-and-avoid-everything.

You ever get that way?

Is this part of my depression?

I think it might be. It's alright, though. Really. I'm okay with it today. Baby steps to the laundry room. Baby steps to the dishes. Baby steps to getting dressed. Baby steps to finishing the projects I've started.

Maybe a baby step would be getting off the computer. That's a start.

ps, I went to the beehive bazaar last night, and it was awesome, and i'll maybe post about that one tomorrow, mmmkay?

For me it would be the double whammy of depression/PMS. Thankfully, the PMS part lets up.

Baby steps.

That's how I've been feeling. Getting away from the computer has helped me a lot. (She says, from THE COMPUTER.) (Still.)

Hang in there my friend, this too shall pass. (That's what my husband keeps telling ME anyway. Sometimes it makes me want to punch him.)

Most definitely. The only way out of it for me is to cut, cut, cut. Go back to the basics until it passes. Say no. Do less. Breath more.

And go to dinner with friends. :)

I think it is part of depression. Also part of having thirty-sixteen children. And not enough cupcakes.

It is so hard to feel overwhelmed...and even harder to get things done with you feel like this. It can be paralyzing.

And yes, it is part of the depression. I am so sorry that you have to deal with that...I really do understand...it is so hard.

Hang in there. I love you!

Let's drown your sorrows and overwhelmingness in fine foods. As soon as I move. And also, I love you.

Ditto to everything that has already been said. Especially the dinner part. And the I love you.

Really.

DR! LEO! MARVIN!

I think writing it down helps, and I agree with the rest of the gals, back up, say no, do less, get out of the house and breathe (even if it's just to sit on the front step for a few minutes) and I think a good cry does a lot. Crying WITH cupcakes maybe. LOVE you ~j.!

Just this morning I was thinking that my days are filled with a helluva lot of laundry, dishes, cooking and driving kids to-and-fro. And everything else in unfinished.

So I guess I'm not the only one. Whew.

Do I ever get that way? Hhmm...just about everyday. Kids are hard...staying at home is hard. Enough baby steps will eventually lead to things getting done. It helps a lot to accept the slacker mom title. I don't have to worry about disappointing the neighbors...they know what to expect;)
