I obviously can't cut back on being a wife or mother (nor do I want to) and I have cut back on the housekeeping a little lately and that only adds to the crappy feeling. I still have Christmas up, YIKES and it's not up because I can't part with looking at it. Yesterday I did leave school right after the buses and headed home to de-decorate and got a good amount done, now all I have left is the tree and that is such a project to get everything off, back into the right little ornament boxes and then packed back up and into the attic! But it will be done by the end of the week, I have promised myself!
I don't feel like I can cut back on my photography because I am new at it and I want to take every opportunity that comes my way and I am loving every minute of getting my new photography business going and I love meeting new people and their families. I just need more time than I have to get it all up and going. I really want to start advertising; like on Craigs List and in local businesses and coffee shops but I feel like all that is on hold until I get my website finished, which has been going slower than I had hoped.
The other thing that I hate about feeling like this is my head feels like it is spinning and I can't remember the simplest things! For instance, last Friday when I was taking the kids to my parents house to stay the weekend, because I was going to New Hampshire for a baby shower and a maternity shoot, I managed to forget: my boots, Jack's boots, my gloves, the small wooden alphabet blocks and Gerber Daisies that I wanted to use in the maternity shoot! What is wrong with me... wait don't answer that! And I forgot all that even with, making a list of what I needed to bring; can you imagine what I would have forgotten if I hadn't had a list!
Well, in a nutshell that's what's going on with me. I just can't wait until this weekend to get a ton of things squared away and back to "normal", what's that? Oh and it is a long weekend too! YIPPEE!!!
