Somethings gotta give!

It's official... I am over-extended.  Thankfully this realization, which has been coming on for about 6 months now has finally proven factual.  I have received email after email and phone call after phone call about the various commitments I have made.  I have raced back and forth to and from work and this kids school more times than I can count this week and it is only Wednesday.  And now in the midst of it all, I have an epiphany.  I am over-committed!  And now to determine the best course of action to resolve this predicament.  You ask, how did I finally discover what so many people have been telling me for years.  I ordered my husband's 40th birthday cake from Costco.  The simple act which took all my strength to muster sent me to this place.  I am incapable of making my husband's birthday cake.  I am incapable of personalizing it that way I feel it should be.  I am letting myself down.  Thankfully, he will praise me up and down for recognizing that somethings gotta give and that I am moving in the direction to resolve it!

I get it completely. It sometimes sucks not to have 48 hours in every 24 to be able to get everything done we want to.

I'm also in the process of re prioritizing things to bring down my stress level.

Good luck in your quest to do the same!
