Do you ever feel like your whole world is spinning and upside down, and no matter how hard you try or what you do, you can't make it stop?
By the end of 2012, I will have been closely involved in a Funeral, a Wedding, and a 50th Anniversary celebration. I will have had a baby, and potty trained a toddler (hopefully). I will have worked three jobs - piano teaching, summer administrative assistant, and babysitting. My husband has been working multiple jobs also, and our debt load doesn't seem to be diminishing.
My house is an absolute mess, and as much as I try to clean it, it never seems to get any cleaner. The piles of laundry in our rooms never seem to get any smaller. And again today, I have no idea what I will put on the table for supper in less than two hours.
I'm running in circles, and yet I'm accomplishing nothing. I want nothing more at this moment than to have a break! To be able to stop and not worry about anything for at least 24 hours, and just enjoy the stillness. Is this what motherhood is like? Is this what life is like?
I feel like I'm missing something...
