I will preface this post by mentioning I have 4 children that I love with all of my heart and soul. I always wanted a large family and I thank God that I was given this and 4 children with a partner that would move mountains for us. I also realize that I have wonderful family and friends that help me out whenever they can. All of this being said and acknowledging that I am blessed I am going to just put it out there, I am overwhelmed. Life ebbs and flows, I keep up pretty well, I do the best I can, my husband does the best he can, our girls do the best they can but at times I still get this feeling of being overwhelmed. I never thought being a working Mom of 4 would be easy, I am not an idiot but I usually take pride in being a "machine" and rolling with the punches. I really hate it when I let my "to do" list get the best of me. I have a million photos I would love to post, some winter gear that still needs to be in place, a mountain of laundry sitting next to me to be folded, birthday thank you notes to be written, Halloween candy to be bought, a birthday gift for my Dad to be bought (his birthday is tomorrow,) children to be settled in their new rooms, and allergy shot that is due, a 2nd flu shot that is due for a cute baby, homework to be started in a half hour, the nanny called in sick yesterday and I am anticipating the same thing for tomorrow. (Lets be honest, this tearful fit is probably mostly caused by a cloudy day and anticipating scrounging for childcare for tomorrow.) Life is not that bad, I just needed to get "where I have been" off my chest. When I feel like this I play this song and after a good cry I always feel better. Thanks for listening.
