I really do get overwhelmed...

(This is her "oh wow mom you have so much to do" face!)

I have had people asking me lately how I get all this blogging stuff done in my life. I'm staying home with Isis, but "staying home" is a whole lot different than just sitting on my butt all day playing with my baby. Oh my goodness! I'm doing laundry, cleaning up, feeding her, playing with her, going to the grocery, running errands, finding time to blog, finding time to feed myself, meeting up with friends for lunch sometimes, working sporadically at the company where I used to work - not to mention the fact that I'm watching my best friend's 2 girls every Tuesday & Thursday (along with Isis)!!! That's a lot for me!! Oh and of course I have to somehow find time to fit in time with my husband when he gets home from work!!

Yes I'm doing the 31DBBB challenge & yes I'm keeping up with my posts & tasks, but I am not yet able to spend as much time as I'd like checking out the other blogs in the challenge! I'm really trying, but I would like to give everyone the attention I feel they deserve & it's just difficult. I'm getting more comments & I really do try to respond to each one, so that takes some effort! I feel like the place I'm really lagging behind is in my blog content that is outside of the 31DBBB. The only thing that keeps me going on this is that I know that my blogging will get much more effective, interesting & hopefully efficient once I've completed the challenge!

So I just wanted to let everybody know that I really do get overwhelmed sometimes & today is one of those times that I'm feeling like things are getting out of control for me. I'm making a list in order to prioritize! I've also got a folder in my bookmarks of "Links to Check Out" and it's getting pretty crazy...

How are you doing with the challenge?
Or with life in general when things get busy??

I just had to stop doing a post for every challenge day. It was getting to be to much trying to write about things like "hey, I read a ton of links about how to fix what I'm doing wrong," and make it interesting.

Now I'm just doing the tasks as they come along, and slipping the writing ones into the rest of my blogging. It took a bunch of the pressure off instantly.

It is overwhelming trying to wear so many hats, being a SAHM is certainly a more challenging role than we ever realize & then add in this blogging addiction... I guess you just have to take each day as it comes & prioritize what has to happen first, take a big breath & move on to the next task. They say what doesn't kill us makes us stronger but it sure doesn't feel thatway sometimes. Good luck with it all. P.S Isis is extremely cute!!!

When it stops being fun, it's time to reassess. Definitely cut yourself slack - you'll go crazy if you don't. Decide what can slide and what can't. Obviously that cutie patootie up there is first priority. You're doing a great job. We all feel overwhelmed from time to time and anyone who says they don't is lying. :-)

Mama don't we all. You're doing a fantastic job. Keep up the good work. And you're watching your friends kids too! Awesome. Its hard being a SAHM, more so than a 9 to 5 job where you can have a quiet lunch and goof off a bit. Have a good day and that photo of your lil girl is so cute (=

Sometimes it's good to just take a break, breath, and enjoy the moment.

Hope your many hats fall into place more often than not.

Don't worry, you are not alone! I just posted about this on my blog! Like you, I have been feeling overwhelmed as of late and stretched too thin! I love blogging, but I had begun to become too obsessive about trying to do everything. My advice: Just do the best you can and try not to worry about anything else!

Reading this blog, and the comments help me feel better to know i am not alone.

I think there is no job harder than a SAHM. We do it all, 24/7, and then some. It get's so overwhelming, especially when the days are so full that we can't find time for ourselves (like blogging), but I guess I still wouldn't trade it all in to go to work.

I know I'd miss this crazy, full, messy, infuriating, wacky, entertaining, stressful, and beautiful life here at home with the madness :)

I completely relate. With two children (and a husband!)to take care of, keeping up with all of this can certainly be daunting. I just attempt to a little bit at a time as I can!

I am so on your team right now. I'm working from 6am until 7pm, then sitting down and trying to get myself into this blogging world. And then working again until midnight. It is so hard to get it right wehn you have kids too. BUT it does pass and then you look back at everything you accomplished with PRIDE. Bravo you! Here, have a Hobnob.
