I feel like I'm drowning and barely able to keep my head above water. I feel so overwhelmed in every aspect of my life it's pathetic.
I have so much paper work to do at work it's unbelievable. I love teaching, but it's gotten so focused on data that I spend more time completing checklists and goal sheets that I barely have a second to actually plan a lesson. Report cards are due this week and I have parent teacher conferences the following week. I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and just stay one day after work to get some stuff done because it's so crazy that it gives me no end of stress even when I'm not at work.
Andy's on midnights so I get overwhelmed with housework. Laundry, bottle maintenance (which could be a post all on its own), straightening up, sweeping and mopping since Isabella loves to play on the floor) and dusting. Not to mention cooking, cleaning and dishes. I feel like I can't catch up and even if I manage to do half of that stuff, it just starts again the next week. I'm usually pretty good with it, but for some reason this week has been tough. I give all the credit in the world to women who don't have help or whose husbands are deployed.
I've just been in a funk for about a week and I can't snap out of it. I don't want to talk to people, but then I get lonely and it just makes it worse. I feel so isolated from my core group of friends. I haven't been on the message board I go to in a little bit either. I just feel like a turtle all pulled up inside it's shell.
Hopefully since the weather is getting nice again after a month of snow storms things will get better. Fresh air and sunshine always make me feel good. I just want to snap out of this funk. Thanks for indulging in this post.
