This week I'm in a hurry. Morning and night. Pack the baby bag. Pick up the dry cleaning. Call the vet. Call the doctor. Call daycare. Go to Junior League. Organize event for Junior League. Pay the bills. Balance the budget. Freak about how unbalanced the budget is. Clean out the left overs. Fold the laundry. Buy a greeting card. Get to the gym. Fix my Ebay mistake. Oh yeah, and work.
Nothing special - but this week I can't stop the to-do list from spinning through my mind like a roulette wheel. I know so many of you out there feel the same way. How do you unwind? I usually would say I knit, but doesn't seem I make the time for it. Really what I need is a good dose of perspective, so here it goes. I am lucky to have these responsibilities, it means I have a job, money to pay the bills, clothes to keep me warm, food to nourish me, a wonderful daughter and loving dog. It's not so bad after all, is it.
Alright, now I can go to bed with a quiet mind.

Yoga. Learn to be "in the moment". Prioritize. Don't feel guilty if everything isn't perfect.

You have a lot on your mind alone with Charlotte this week and I'm certain you're feeling pretty wiped out! Keep her the priority and set some things aside for a few days. You'll have a better perspective when you're feeling more rested. Yoga sounds good, but I haven't found a good instructor yet.

Ohhh, I hear you so loud and clear. But, at the end of the day...when you look at your sleeping baby, your husband, and reflect on your day...you should be very proud. Not many women can do what you do and make it look so easy!
