SWAMPED
Work is crazy busy. I work so hard and concentrate so hard all day long, go go go that I come home completely wiped out. I am behind on everything. My house is dirty. I am tired and cranky and probably PMS'ing. I can't get caught up, and I am feeling sorry for myself and not doing a very good job of snapping out of it. Despite all my attempts to cut down, cut back, say no, my calendar seems to be more full than ever. I'm considering dropping out of choir because it's a weekly commitment. I'm already trying to drop away from the AWC and failing miserably. I honestly don't know what's wrong with me, and whining about it here isn't really what I want to be doing. I need a vacation from myself.

I was quite pleased to see, tonight, while I was watering outside, that both the cherry tree and the little lilac have survived the long, wet winter and have pointy little green buds on them. The hostas are poking their spiky little heads up out of the dirt. Everything is busy getting bushy with it.

unsolicited advice

Do try to take a few moments every day, even when you are really really busy, just for yourself. This is important. It can be very brief. Not just another thing to get time stressed about.
I used to sometimes just need to step in the other room or out on the porch long enough to take a few deep breaths and slowly drink a glass of water, less than 2 minutes, in the crazy daze of raising and homeschooling all those kids.
A hot bath can be heavenly. Or, have you scheduled that massage?
Another trick: I schedule unscheduled time when I am very busy. And I guard that hour or half a day with my life!

I do hope you get it worked out soon. Maybe you could get someone in to help with the house?
And at least much of your busy-ness is things you love [family] and things you like to do [singing, book club]

Oh, and you get to feel sorry for yourself a little every now and then, especially if you are pms'ing!!!
