Whew! What a day! I dont know if I am coming or going. Sometimes I get in these obsessive compulsive moods where I feel like I have to have everything perfect and in its place and it has to get done like Right Now! So I put this extra unneccessary pressure on myself that I dont need.
My load has become a little heavier. we only have three district games left in softball and then we head into post season which is a monster in itself. I am also preparing for Senior Night (which I make a really big deal) as well as Team Bonding at Coach Mac’s house next weekend. So, there are fun things in the horizon just a lot of prep work.
I”m really working on prioritizing my day to make it more efficient so I won’t feel so overwhelmed. I get this way when I take on new projects but once I get down the schedule everything starts to fall in its place.
My time with my lil man is so important so, when I come home I give him my undivided attention before I start doing anything else. And I have learned that if I move my work into his room I can get a lot more done. Because he will focus more on playing with his own toys and I wont be so worried about what he is doing in the other room.
I feel like I am so in a routine—come home, cook dinner, play with lil man, bath time, story time, prayer time, bed. After that , I can take some time to myself before I usually end up falling asleep on the couch.
Its hard being a single mom but I know that I am not the only person that is or has gone through it but, today in particular I could so use a “tag team”. Just so I can have a blocked off time to get some of my things done. But, I know that my time is coming so until then, I will continue to adjust my schedule and one way or another everything will get done.
As I sing to Ian “Just the two of us, we can make it if we try, just the two of us, you and I”
