Under Pressure

I feel like I could snap at any given moment lately. I don’t know exactly why but I am on edge. I have so much going on in practically every aspect of my life and I feel like I’m losing sight of my priorities. Or the bigger picture… Maybe both?

My house needs scrubbed. A wall in my room needs painted. I’m having a much needed garage sale this weekend. I need a new coffee maker (so I guess daily Starbucks run is now on my to-do list). I need a vitamix. I need GMOs to be labeled so grocery shopping doesn’t take 8 million years. I need my kids to stop fighting constantly. I need the baby to not really be feverish. I also need to figure out WTF I’m doing wrong with my diaper washing that it is giving her a rash. I need to find a local source to buy milk, eggs and a half cow from that I can trust. I need to write an outline for my first public speaking engagement. I need an extra 3 hours in the day to focus on MommyCon work. I need an extra 2 days a month to focus in TMD stuff so I’m not frantically typing up rants like this one on my phone. I need to know my marriage is on the mend after a really hard test. I need a cowhide rug. I need to see my best friend’s face. I miss him a lot. I need my stupid period to go away, Aunt Flow’s two week visit has not been welcomed. I need to find a way to cope with my feelings about my decision to be sterilized. I need to find time for me. I have a gift card for a massage that is almost 2 months old. I need my husband to make money consistently so I don’t stress about money. I need our insurance premiums to go down. I need to find the balance that I’m constantly searching for. I need so many questions answered yet I’m too afraid to ask. I need more wine… We are almost out. I need to log all the MC packages that have arrived. I need to buy tickets to Riley’s play. I need to put in my notice at work. I need an oil change on my car. I need to call and order a new lock-off for my carseat.

I think most of all I needed to get all this off my chest.

    Thank you. So many many moms forget to make lists like these but I think it’s good. It’s healthy. Sometimes stuff like this happens and sometimes the best thing to do is just simply write it down.

    Sounds familiar. So much to do, so little time. I hope you get a few things checked off that list soon.

    I love you and I am always here for you. I can always take the kids for you so you can get things done or just get some much needed you time! Btw I also still have my unused spa gift card, over a year old. We should find some time to use them together and leave the kidos with there dads.
