Wordless Wednesday and iPPP: In my head

181_8120 (Medium)
We used to do sign shots all the time.

I'm in my head too much these days. I'm having a hard time keeping track of things. And if you for one second ask yourself how this could be possible as a stay-at-home-mom, stop. Sometimes everyone gets a little overwhelmed.

Being home has its perks but it also has its downsides and one of them is that I'm not making any money. That's not at all why I started my doula business, but it's true my business brings in some money (though it's probably also true that it's considered a hobby because of the money going out). I also have some other things I'm doing to make money - some paid blogging and some social media managing. All these things are very different and demand my attention.

Maybe I got used to my level of "work"... keeping the house and taking care of the kids. All those playdates I manage and groceries I buy. But now I feel like I'm juggling a million different things and I'm having a hard time keeping it all straight. I feel a little lost, a little overwhelmed.

I was looking through our older pictures trying to get someting checked off one of my to do lists and it hit me. We used to do a lot of stuff, see our friends all the time, and go places. And we used to take way more pictures of our cats. And I used to be much skinnier.

I hope that in another 5-7 years I'll look back at the pictures from now and smile and remember these days fondly. I hope I don't remember how stressed I am even though I have every reason to be content and carefree.

Maybe I'll get used to being pulled in so many directions. Maybe I'll get better at making lists and getting stuff done. Maybe I'll learn to get out of my head.

  1. You're managing to do a lot at once and raising two little people is not an easy job! Don't be too hard on yourself if you're feeling overwhelmed. You can do it!

  2. I'm the exact same way. I get lost in "all the things" often and find myself drowning and not remembering to do any of it.

    It's hard. But, it happens when you stay home with small children, right? Maybe someday we'll get things "under control" and relearn how to enjoy ourselves. :)
