Stressed

I am starting to feel overwhelmed with the end of the school year approaching and all of the things I need to do. I really wished I would not have taken on the role of PTA president until after Derek was older. This is my schedule for today, and it is typical from now until the end of the school year. I know everyone is busy. But this should maybe put an end of the idea that some people have of my having " too much time on your hands":

  • Work out---Derek only let me do 1/2 hour of my video...typical...I need to get up at 6 a.m.
  • Walk Rex --twice--2 times each around the block for leg rehab
  • Drop off teacher birthday gifts
  • Deliver jog-a-thon fliers to local businesses for sponsors
  • Play board games with Derek
  • Take Derek to the Park
  • Get Groceries ( used to enjoy shopping...now dread it with a 3-yr. old.
  • (Derek used to be so easy to take everywhere...I used to take him to the gym every day...he used to be great in the shopping cart at the store...Everything changed at about 2&1/2.) Still love being a mom...but the baby stage was much easier to actually get things done. Maybe the problem is that when he was a baby I wasn't PTA President Elect...Next year is only going to be worse. I wish I would have waited...I forgot why I said I would do it.)
  • Call Members of PTA Board for next year
  • Find a babysitter for PTA State Convention for next Friday
  • Clint's Dress Rehearsal for Singing Program 5 p.m.
  • Help Clint finish State Report Due tomorrow
  • School Carnival 5-8 p.m. (I need to stop by and make an appearance sometime during the night.)
  • Friends Lia Sophia party 6:30 p.m.
  • Stake Primary Meeting 7:00 p.m.
  • Put Laundry Away
  • Clean Kitchen
  • Send Mother's Day Gifts (sorry mom, it's probably going to be late).
  • Clean TV room
  • Pay Bills

These are all things that absolutely have to be done today. So why am I wasting time on my blog? I am waiting for the caffeine from my diet coke to kick in that I recently gave up...and started again this week...And oh yeah, I quit Target. I already have a full time job...to bad I don't get paid.

Did someone tell you that you have too much time on your hands?! Taking care of a little boy all day takes a lot of time.

Talk about a super mom! But i have total faith in you that you can pull it off. I know that you enjoy being a part of so many things but every now and again it can catch up with you. But that is why we have chocolate. Take a 10 minute break and eat some chocolate. I have found it really makes the day go by better.
