Have you ever felt like you’re always trying to catch up? And when you reach the bottom of the huge to-do list, another pile of things appear that you need to get done and the end just seems to get further and further away.
If I’m honest, I’m struggling lately. I’m constantly tired, my mind is always on the go thinking about this and that and I’m really conscious of trying to spend as much time as I can with Little Mr doing fun stuff together as my maternity leave ends in just a few short weeks.
I feel unorganised, my memory is terrible and if it’s not written down it’s just not happening. I’m trying to get as much done as possible but feel like I’m not getting very far at all. My diet is terrible, I’m not drinking enough fluids and I’m always thinking about what I’m going to do next; cooking, washing, cleaning the kitchen or the bathroom, meeting family, keeping appointments, making sure we remember birthdays etc.
Is this just the curse of being a new mum and trying to cram in too much? Should I just step off the [metaphorical] train and sit down for a while and do nothing and let everything wait? I feel like I should be doing something other than blogging but if I don’t get out what’s in my head, I’m likely to burst into tears (again!)
No need to reply or leave a comment but I just need to get it out there and maybe stop for a second, please….?
