I am completely burned out.
After a 'productive' week, I realized I am in fact completely behind on responding to my emails, not to mention blogging. I helped do a promotion for a company and had a great time with it, not to mention it was very successful. But in putting much effort into it I fell behind on other projects and messages that I can't even remember if I responded to. I'm not sure if I take on too much, or if honestly I am one of those people who just gets stressed out too easily and gets their feelings hurt often. I'm going with the latter, but either way, here I am. More work that I need to do this evening when I feel like baking and going to bed early. Even cleaning would be more fun.
Moms in general have so much on their plate, it's insane. There is nothing more exhausting than motherhood, but what keeps us going is the fact that it is so worth it. I am beyond grateful that my daughter sleeps through the night and I have slightly more free time ( and space) than when she was say two. At the same time I am irritated that I have work to do at the end of the day when I feel like sleeping. It makes me wonder how I can scale back, as I'm really not sure how. I'm constantly looking at what I can lesson from my workload so that I won't feel burn out at the end of the day.
I also got heat stroke, and on a very random note I'm upset Paul Walker and Nelson Mandela died. Not that those two had much in common, but I was a fan of both. One was a young single Dad and well known actor, the other a peace activist and real life hero. Perhaps I am indeed oversensative regarding the Paul Walker tragedy but no one can debate the fact that this world needs more Nelson Mandelas, not less.
On a positive note, the island is really beginning to get ready for Christmas! Will post photos tomorrow:)
