Overwhelmed, upset, frustrated... slowly losing my sanity

What a depressing title but sadly that is how I am feeling for this past week.

It seems like I have thousand and one tasks to complete and yet when the little baby naps or sleeps, I will try to start on my work but it cannot be done. She seems to have a radar on her that will signal her to wake up once I get my pencil and paper out to start on my work. So work is very slowly progressing and it is too slow for my comfort.



Along with that, the baby don't seems to sleep well at night so I have on average 3 hours of sleep per night.



There is the housework to complete which I do not have the luxury to let it pile as I have to keep the house clean to prevent eczema acting up on the baby.



Then there is Ash to worry about...



And more work to worry about...



And I have no time to do the things that I like...I have yet to sew, take pictures, bake and enjoy a good read!



I am losing it and really it scares the hell out of me.



I will leave you with my two princesses... they drive me nuts but I love them nuts too!

Meditate on the first point of ur Twenty cans of success... "I can do all things...All things not 1 or 2 but ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me!

Thanks Everyone... I am feeling better now... Had a good dinner last night with lots od salmon sashimi and was suppose to do a little therapy shopping but it was kind of late. Came home and I started on my sewing machine and made some stuff and really... the sewing helps to soothe my mind. Will be posting on it later tonight. Hope everyone has a good weekend.. I am determined not to be beaten by this nasty feeling... I can do ALL things thru' Christ who strengthens me... I am going to have myself a good weekend so all of you should too :)

I think the workload of parenting overwhelmes us all form time to time! I know it happens to me ever so often... My priest told me once, that the way I should look at things, is: "I can do this one more time!"
It helped me to think that way....maybe it can help you too....

When you place all as "very important" then of cos you are over loaded with many things to do. Try list them down by pirorities..then get done one by one.
Hobbies I think that will do when we are free? Chores & children usually comes first. Just like bloggings..I do when I have time too.
Don't panic or get stress up. All can be done. Relax, ok?
