Right now, I’m basically neck-deep in my never-ending to-do list. It’s seriously overwhelming to not only have the regular demands of work, marriage and parenting, but throw in Autism, therapies, a food allergy, a sick kid and you have one tired mom… And those are just part of our plethora of parenting issues pertaining to only one of our kids! I feel like I am stretched far too thin these days. To add to the general insanity, I am now working for Keller Williams doing residential real estate in my “free” time. Why? Because I am crazy. Totally insane, even. Do you ever feel like things will never get easier? I just feel like I can’t get ahead. If I pay off one bill, another pops up in its place. If I try to increase my salary by working more, I lose precious family time. If I spend two hours at the grocery store dissecting Ingredient lists, I get home too late to use said ingredients to bake a soy-free pound cake for Knox. Let’s not even talk about the intense mom guilt I feel over never having made baby food for Brody. Aside from mushing up an occasional banana, I feed him baby food from a jar. Not that that’s bad or anything, but I made everything Knox ate for over a year myself. Funny how things change with that second baby!! Anyway, this long rambling paragraph serves to say: I’m tired. I’m over-scheduled. I’m struggling to keep it all together. The end. Now I’m going to try to grab five hours of sleep before I have to wake up and attempt to keep a two year old neat and well-groomed for picture day… Yeah right!
