“What’s all the crying about?”

I wanted to jump up this morning bright eyes beaming with happiness and my heart overflowing with thoughts of how AWESOME life is. Nope. Not going to happen today friends. I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place with heavy bulldozers on each side SQUEEZING the sanity out of me.

I know I’m not alone with this feeling of “Someone Save Me From This Madness!”

So, what’s all the crying about you ask?

I am a:

*Wife

*Mother of a 12 year Son with ADHD

*Caretaker of my 57-year-old Mother with Autism, Mild Mental Retardation and age related heath concerns

*Work Fulltime

*Art Teacher one evening a week

*Aspiring ETSY success story 🙂 http://www.etsy.com/shop/thisvintageheart

*Housekeeper, Chauffeur, Personal Assistant, Cheer Leader …… You get the picture.

But who isn’t these days, right? I KNOW I’m not alone. I want to know others like me. It is hard to share my stories with just anyone. Not everyone can relate or even come close to understanding the amount of emotions I feel daily.

I’M ON A MISSION! I want to learn how to manage my overwhelming schedule and responsibilities. My mission starts TODAY. Do you have any ideas of where I should start? Resources or Help sites?

(Deep Breath and Release)

I’m feeling better already just having shared this with you. I think by admitting that I’m overwhelmed and need help may have been the first step. 🙂
