Have you ever felt totally overwhelmed? Like you just can’t add one more thing to your plate, but then someone or something does? That’s me.
Right now. I
have so many things that I am supposed to be doing, in my 9-5, in my home, with Pookah, with this blog…. And I can’t catch up.
Oh I make my to do lists, I prioritize I DO. But then something else happens and I just can’t do…anything. It’s like I’m frozen just staring at my to do list.
I had a migraine last weekend..the whole weekend and insomnia on top of that. But of course, being the soldier I am, I carried on. Because the world would fall apart if I didn’t right? I lasted until Tuesday. And by Tuesday afternoon, I was…DONE. I took Wednesday off. From my 9-5 from this blog, from mommy duties, from wifey duties…from LIFE. I just wanted to be alone all day in a dark room in the bed with the covers over my head.
And silence. Sweet, Beautiful Silence.
Or so I thought.
Ironically, CDub seemed to sense I was at a breaking point and took me to lunch and then spend all afternoon with me trying to get me to relax. We talked, we listened to A Tribe Called Quest on endless repeat ( RIP Phife Dawg) and he just let me…be…..
He even saw to dinner.
I feel better this morning, ready to take on the world and my endless to do list again.
Have you ever reached your breaking point? What do you do?
