Sometimes life just seems to speed out of control. I know to hold on to the moments, especially with my children, but as much as I know that in my head, I still let days slip by where I’ve been gone to work all day and come home and do blogging/online “stuff”.
Right now, I’m feeling overwhelmed. I have been for a couple of months now. I think since I went to BlogHer, I haven’t quite recovered from all the catch up work I’ve been trying to do.
Add to that, I’ve been working full time at work because we’re setting up Christmas and have been since the beginning of September. Well, September 10th to be exact. Now, I’ll finish this week up and go back to my regular part time hours. I will really like the breather next week.
I’ve also been trying to pitch my little blog as much as possible for the upcoming holidays. It’s not going so well. I think companies are inundated with bloggers who do product reviews and giveaways. They only have so much of a budget for this kind of stuff. Some companies are getting back to me, and even if it’s a “no” at least they’re getting back to me! Thanks Columbia for your reply! You guys do social media very well!
My daughter came home on Friday with a couple of her friends and they gutted her room. There’s nothing left but empty furniture and a bed that’s half made. She got an apartment this year and for reasons that I’ll share down the road (good reasons) she emptied her entire room out. As soon as she left, I sobbed like a baby. I never thought her room would be completely void of any evidence that she’d ever lived there. Life happens, our kids grow up. It’s not easy and I don’t like it one little bit, but what do you do?
I’m guessing her sister will come home at some point and do the same thing. Does everyone feel overwhelmed when life changes? I know I do and that’s where I’m at right now. It’s been a huge year of change for me and the changes aren’t over yet!
Have you felt overwhelmed lately? Because of anything specific or just life in general?
1.) What comes to mind when you think of the word ‘plaid’. a kilt?
2.) Share a moment when you felt overwhelmed.
3.) They’re smarter than they look! Write about a time your child was on to you. they’re rarely on to me!
4.) Choose an item you recently pinned on Pinterest and…TRY IT! Was it a success or failure? Wanted to do this one but not enough time!
5.) Tell us about the last thing that irritated you. lol this happens too often and you just don’t want to hear about it!
