Overwhelmed | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


If I had to choose one word to describe how I feel right now, it would have to be *overwhelmed*.  Raise your hand if that’s you.  I have too much on my plate and I am drowning.  Something needs to give or my mind just might explode.  I went back to work permanent part-time when the kids went back to school, working 15-25 hours, but only during the hours of when my kids have school (so that I can be home when they get home).  I pretty much get home 30 minutes (on a good day) before they walk through the door.

I haven’t worked in 8 years.

I won’t say the adjustment has been terrible- it hasn’t- but it has been an adjustment.

There have been times (like this week), where I just feel so very tapped out without enough hours in the day and so many things suffering horribly. I am not going to whine about all the things I do (and don’t do).  We all have our personal daily struggles and I would venture to say that some of them are the same.

I am learning to say NO to any new things that require more of my time and a commitment.  I just don’t have any more time to give.  If I were to be honest, I am looking for ways to cut back some and have more time in my house.

How do full-time working moms do IT?  how do stay-at-home moms do IT?

Heck, how am I doing IT?

Not very well, I have to say.

What one word describes YOU…..TODAY?
