Overwhelmed

I am overwhelmed.  I am beginning to doubt that I can keep up with all the work that goes along with my job.  I don't know if it's just because it's the beginning of the school year, and things are just happening all at once, or if it's going to be this way for the rest of the year.  I hope not!  Today was the first day of school.  The last two days have really taken a toll on me.  I didn't sleep well last night.  My brain kept processing all the forms, rules, and regulations that I must follow in order to do everything, correctly.  Is it too much for one person.  Probably.  Do I try to stay upbeat and tell myself that I can do it?  Yes.  But, then I get in the thick of it, and I get so frustrated because it's not going as well as my mind tells me it should.  Maybe it's time to step back and admit to myself that I can't possibly do it the way it is supposed to be done.  I just don't know.  Maybe I'm just tired today.  My brain is fried.  I plan to get a good night's sleep tonight.  Hopefully, things will look better tomorrow.

I hope things feel better in the morning. It's close to the weekend so that will help, right?

Thanks, Jennifer. Things did feel a little better after a good night's sleep. Hopefully, it will get better as the school year progresses.

I know that feeling, and I agree that your whole outlook can change depending on how much sleep you've had! I am counting down the days until school starts. I miss my predictable routines!

And OMG, Sandra, Millie is ADORABLE!

Sandra you get this way every year but you do so great and you must enjoy the kids. Have fun this year and thanks. Kathy.

Thanks so much, everyone. I have the first 3 days under my belt, and now have had the weekend to recuperate. I think I might just make it, after all. :)
