I feel so overwhelmed. There is so much to get done and only a few short hours in each day to do it all. Sitting here, looking at the jumbled scribbly mess that is my calendar, I just want to hole up in my house and never leave.
But, the more I have to do, the more I get done. Busy people get stuff done. That's why the PTO president is always a career woman/soccer mom with a clean house. If I cut back, that just opens up more free time...which I will inevitably spend on Facebook, TV, or something equally mind numbing.
I want to lead a productive life. I want to accomplish things each and every day. Really, I want to be able to look at my calendar and feel invigorated instead of stressed out and overwhelmed. What I need is to change my attitude. I have to embrace the chaos and accept that if I crowd my schedule, there will be projects I won't finish and meetings I won't attend and that's just the way it has to be.
This phase of my life won't last forever. And getting stuff done is great. I would rather be busy than bored. Repeat...repeat...repeat...
