At the moment I am trying to upload some photos and write this blog, all while folding laundry and unwinding from the day. It was a fairly chill day today so not a whole lot of unwinding to be done, but I am a mother to an almost 9 month old and man, she keeps me on my toes. I find myself very overwhelmed most days and feeling as though there are not enough hours to complete everything that I'd like to. It doesn't help that my mind is all over the place with things I have to do, things that need to be fixed, keeping track of the little ones milestones, appointments that need to be made, appointments to go to, cleaning the house, paying the bills, making grocery lists, making dinner menus, etc. It is as though my day never really ends. One day just blends into the next it seems.
I have come to the realization that I need a planner. Of course, my phone has an app for that but I think I need something that I can physically write in. I seem to remember things better if I take a pen and paper and write them down. Maybe then I wont feel so scatterbrained. Then again, its often the sound of my tantruming baby that causes a little bit of my scatterbrainedness. That is when I tell myself to "just breathe". All I need to do is plop myself on the couch, take a few deep breaths and remind myself that this is all worth it. Yes, being a mommy is a good job to have and my daughter absolutely adores me. So when I am frustrated with her, feeling like I cant make it through the day (or night) I just need to simply take one good look at her picture, and my heart will melt...
