Spinning My Wheels

I have this feeling that I'm running, running, running and just not getting anywhere.

The amount of things I need to accomplish is kind of mind-boggling. I was so overwhelmed last night that I basically procrastinated the whole time. Which led to me being even more overwhelmed this morning.

Totally craptacular.

I know what I need to do is keep up with the basics and not let everything get so piled up. I feel better when everything is nice and neat and put away. When the to-do list is manageable.

It's a matter of implementing these things.

I do okay at time management, but not always. I need to do better. The internet is usually infinitely more interesting than my reading for class (I have to read the book "The Great Meadow: Farming and Land Use in Colonial Concord" by Thursday. And it is every bit as torturous as it sounds). I know that this is not likely to change anytime soon.

Getting to bed on time is also an issue. I'm a night person. That is also not going to change. Probably not ever. It's a bad cycle because I feel guilty about all of the stuff I should have done during the day that I didn't, so I stay up late, wake up groggy and cranky (don't I always?), and be less productive again the following day.

Augh.

Well, speaking of procrastinating, I really need to get back to work. And then to bed.

Hi Carrie,
I hate that feeling, and know it so well. It is just one day, and today is a new day to just focus on. Just today. And being gentle with ourselves if it isn't perfect.

Hugs,
DG

well if it helps you are most definately not alone, maintaining a sense of balance is an ongoing challenge. Try to be patient with yourself. You have a lot going on and it sounds like you are doing a great job managing it too!
