What to do, what to do?

Do you ever feel like so much is going on in your head that nothing is getting done? Ever feel like you know you should be doing things, but don't know what... or how? I sort of feel that way now. My guys are finally feeling better (knock on wood). I know there are things to do around the house. I know I need to find things for the 3 of us to do over the summer. I know that the more active we are the smoother the days are and the better I feel. But, knowing all that doesn't motivate me to do things.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, Blake goes to preschool until 1pm. This gives Colby and I time to do things together. It also means that when Colby naps I have time to myself. What should I be doing? Working out, cleaning the house, making Colby's thank you cards for his birthday. I could be doing so many things. But, what did I do... sit on the couch and watch reality tv shows that I taped.

I need to find motivation. I need to find energy. I need to realize that it's ok to have me time, but there are other things that need to be done too.

Hmmm balance. Why is it always hard to find?

  1. I hear you! My mind is always racing with what I "should" be doing. I try to use Ryan's nap time to rest, but then my mind starts on all the things that I need to get done. Balance is tricky! Even though I only have one child, it's still hard for me to figure out how to make it all work. You're not alone!

  2. I totally understand! But, you are just coming off a very busy and stressful winter/spring. Maybe you just need to give yourself permission to relax for a little. I did that for the first few days of vacation and my drive kicked back in again. Instead of little breaks here and there, allow yourself to relax for a day or two. It might be just what you need.

  7. Sounds kind of like me. So much to do that you don't want to start on any of them. I call it feeling "blobby".

    I think you and I need a girls night out or something!

  8. Balance...that elusive gift all moms search for! I've been there. I'm a list-maker. I start with a list and get a great feeling of accomplishment when I cross something off. I'm also never tempted to say, "I don't know what to do" because it's in black and white in front of me! (I've also been known to wave it in my hubby's face as an answer to "What did you to today"...!)

  9. I think that sometimes doing exactly what you think you shouldn't is the perfect thing to do. We all need to just be sometimes...we rush around doing so much that it's so good to just stop every now and then. But we all feel guilt about it. Maybe this is your balance? Enjoy it!!
