Let's take laundry as an example.
I do a load of laundry every day so that it stays manageable and to keep me from getting overwhelmed. Well, I am now at that point. Or maybe I've even passed the point of being overwhelmed with laundry. I just want to give up! Why? Well, the laundry does not wash itself while you're away attending funeral services up north. It does not wash itself either when you go away on vacation to Hawaii. Ugh!
I am feeling overwhelmed right now just thinking about all that I have to do. The thing is, when I am overwhelmed, I freeze. I run away and end up doing nothing which makes the situation even worse. It's a vicious cycle that causes my possible need for hormonal acne treatment. Double ugh!
My house is in such a mess right now and the kids are sick. And DH started his Orthopedic fellowship this week. Right off the bat, he's on night float. How cruel is that! LOL! So, yes, my house is a mess. My kids are sick. And I am alone with no help. And what am I doing? Blogging... because when I am overhelmed, I run away from that which I should be doing.
Did I mention I am beyond overwhelmed?
