OK, OK, I admit it! I have too many things on my plate. I know I am usually wiped out in Aug/Sept, until we get a routine and a schedule going, but I am really feeling the pain right now.
It was insane to start all of my full time job responsibilities the same week school started. I also made a fatal error in enrolling Evan in a class on Thursdays which I have to drive 20 minutes each way to get to. Tyler's scouts just got changed to Wednesdays, which means there isn't a single day I can stay in my PJ's and get a bunch of stuff done at home. Every day has big blocks of time chunked out of it. I am not thrilled with this.
I don't think I've slept in two weeks between the heat (107 degrees today. YIKES!), the constant backpack clutter, the 25 signed syllabuses (or should that be syllabi? Nope, spell check does not like syllabi), 4 kids needing me to watch them do homework, job postings, meals, laundry and the constant shuttling of children to activities. Somehow, I have got to take the time to get more organized so that I don't end up flat in bed. As it is, every day I am pounding the Advil just to stay upright. Something is gonna give and soon if I don't make some changes, and I'm betting it won't be pretty.
