when there just aren't enough hours in the day.
I'm gonna go all Seth Godin on you today by making this post SUPER SHORT because I have no time to waste and I got a kid who's finally sleeping. During the day!
I can probably count on many hands how many times I've felt like there just aren't enough hours in the day. Sound familiar?
In a nutshell, I am overwhelmed.
Like totally stressed, holy-cow, how am I going to balance all of this, and why can't I get 5 more hours in my day overwhelmed! If I were a nighthawk I would blissfully stay up until 2am to get stuff done, while my nugget slept. Ain't ever gonna happen. I am exhausted and ready for bed by 9pm and even in college, I was in bed at a reasonable hour. I'm a morning person and that will never change.
Three months in, I am now facing an early return to work in less than a month's time, stressing out about child care (yes I work at home, but that is some multi-tasking I will NOT participate in. I need undivided attention to get work done with no distractions) and still figuring out how to parent. Figuring out my kid who changes everyday and for someone who is used to routines and consistently, this is a struggle. Not to mention, I still don't love where I live and miss my past life a lot or at least the support it offered me because I had my girlfriends and family there. I have an extended family here but I still struggle with it.
Don't judge me.
Short enough? Good, I've got more work to go and this bebe is ALREADY waking up!
