Sometimes I get to this weird place where I feel completely overwhelmed, and there are a million things I need to do, so I don't do any of them. Does anybody else do this?
Today, I needed to:
Buy more chirstmas lights
Finish trimming the Christmas tree
Drop off a package at Fedex
Finish knitting a hat
Clean my bedroom and bathroom
But did I do any of these things? Nope. There were other things that I needed to do that I did do, but I felt like I was only functioning on a survival level and nothing above that.
Finally, I just sat down for a minute, because I was even having trouble prioritizing - my list was just too big for me to deal with at that point.
Then, my wonderful Mom asked if she could take me out to dinner, and I said yes, and, suddenly, all was right with the world again. It's amazing how Moms can do that!
