I'm feeling a bit out of sorts today.  I'm overwhelmed at the amount of things that I'm behind on, yet can't seem to get the motivation to catch up.  My Google Reader has 127 posts waiting in it, and more keep getting added everyday.  I still haven't finished the baby gifts for my friend even though I'm knitting furiously on them what seems like every free second I have, and the boys were born over the weekend.  So much for getting those done before they came.  I've got a million thoughts going through my head for blog posts, yet can't seem to get them from brain to computer screen.  I haven't read my Bible or had any focused quiet prayer time for a few days. 

I feel like I'm meeting myself coming and going and I just can't get turned around to face forward for any significant period of time.  A lot of it has to do with the fact that I just went back on nightshift...the changeover is always hard on me and I feel like I lose days because of it.  I can tell that's not all that's going on though, but I can't put my finger on what the true problem is. 

Ugh...I just want to feel normal and get caught up!


  1. Oh no! Take a deep breath. You'll get everything caught up.

    Perhaps you should write down all the stuff you feel like you need to do & then examine with a critical eye. Are there things that you really don't need to do? Maybe something jumps out and really screams to be attended to.

    Don't worry, sweetie! I have 347 unread items in my Google Reader. I've had to schedule time outside of my house on Sundays to scratch out a couple of blog posts to schedule throughout the week. Oh, and did I mention that every person in my house is currently living out of a (very wrinkly) laundry basket?

    Give yourself a break, sleepy gal! You'll get back on track. Just don't beat yourself up while you're getting there. (Did I mention that I haven't picked up my knitting or cleaned my sticky kitchen floor in almost two weeks?) Smile!

  2. Oh, those weeks are the worst!

    I finally, after 3 weeks of 180+ posts have gotten my reader under control...sometimes you just don't have the time or motivation.

    I hope you feel more like yourself, soon!


  3. i know, I feel like Im chasing my tail alot!!!

  4. Oh, night shift again! That's gotta be rough :(. I hope you can get on some sort of schedule again soon - in the meantime, try not to stress too much about what is left undone and just do what you can.

  5. Hope you can find some time for yourself...and soon! Actually, maybe you should just MAKE some time for yourself. If you don't take care of you, no one else will either! :)

  6. I can't imagine trying to transition to a night shift. That in itself would mess me up bigtime. I hope you will begin to feel normal again soon and get your routine back in place. When I feel overwhelmed by 100 or 200 unread items in my feedreader, my husband likes to remind me that he has about 1500 unread items in his! That makes me feel better. :)

  7. I'm sorry you are feeling so at ends with life right now. I'm feeling similarly. My arsevice is to pick just one thing and finish that. The voice telling me I'm not accomplishing anything usually quiets down after I finish one thing. :)


Thank you for taking the time to share your comments and insight with me, for being a part of my journey on The Road, and for allowing me to be a part of yours...come back soon!
