So after posting cute cats for yesterday, I totally forgot about the need to come and post a blog today. It is still Sunday, so technically I haven’t ruined my so far perfect record.
Actually, I have spent my afternoon rolled up in a quilt on the sofa with a good book. It wasn’t a work of great literature exactly, but it was easy to read and entertaining. Plus lots of things got blown up and that suits my mood right now.
I have to tell you that at the moment, I am feeling more than a little overwhelmed. There is so much going on and so much that has to be done, and there are only 24 hours in the day. I just don’t know how to carve out any more time in that 24 hours for getting everything done, and to do everything that I need to do.
I have had a look on Youtube, because I hear it is a source of all kinds of things. The best advice on Youtube? Use it for finding videos of cute cats and tutorials on how to do crafts. But the advice on what to do if you are overwhelmed? No. Not so much help. Lots of stuff about delegating to your staff members, or turning off your emails, or not being available 24/7 if you are at work or starting your own business, but not so much about what if you are a homemaker and trying to study, adopt a child, keep a house, keep a garden, make sure you are eating right, keeping three animals alive and well, making sure that Christmas is organised and is not a last minute rush, and somehow keeping three parents all happy and functioning – all at the same time. And that is a slow week.
I really do not have any answers at the moment. If I get any, then I will let you know. But right now? I am off to whimper in the corner. I seem to have tried all the tricks in my arsenal and I am coming up empty right now.
Normal blogging service will resume tomorrow, but a bit later than normal (hopefully earlier than tonight!) as I am out in the morning with two of the three parents.
