I’m just keeping it real here. I am feeling way overwhelmed lately. And it makes me feel like a whimp. I have been trying for several days to catch up on blogging my Women’s Conference summaries. I think I only have one or two left, but I can’t seem to get it together. I’ve felt so busy that it’s left me a little uninspired. The ridiculous thing is I can’t figure out what I’m so busy at. My oldest child is in kindergarten and he plays on a baseball team. I have Sunday responsibilities. Other than that, I’m not calendared out to the max. And yet, I feel like I’ve been running full speed for a couple of weeks and I can’t seem to catch my footing and approach things rationally. I’m doomed when my kids have full schedules and I get some real responsibilities.
Here are a few of the things that I know I should be working on, and their deadlines are looming over me like a great weight…. but at the end of the day, I want to crawl in bed and sleep my worries away because I don’t have the energy to think through them like I know I should.
1. In less than two weeks, I’m teaching 8 classes for EFY at Brigham Young University (actually only 4 classes, each one taught twice). I am so not ready right now. I’ve only taught one of the classes before and all 4 of them need a lot more preparation before I will feel comfortable and ready.
2. This weekend I am in charge of a quarterly Activity Day for my Primary kids. Anyone have any brilliant ideas I could use for an “Article of Faith Field Day”?
3. I still have so many thoughts floating around in my head from Women’s Conference that I feel like I need to turn into tangible goals. I want to make a plan, a strategy really, to help me incorporate those promptings into action in my life and in the life of my family. I feel an urgency to think it all through and plan it all out before I lose the ideas and the ambition.
Well, that’s it I guess. Those are kind of the big ones that keep drumming around in the back of my mind while I hash out all the details of the day-to-day. Laundry’s going. The sink is full and needs some attention. I refuse to look at my play room right now.
So say something to inspire me. Go.
