I’m overwhelmed at the moment. Work is at a fever pitch, and I have a 3-year-old miserably ill with RSV (out of school all week). My son was sent home from school crying about a tooth ache, so now we need to get him into the dentist ASAP. Our house just went on the market, so I’m scrambling to make the showings happen. Our new home plans are bulldozing ahead, so every spare minute is occupied with meetings and decisions. I am so overloaded with graduation ceremonies and services that I’m participating in and organizing (so, I can’t miss them), and I have no bandwidth left.
I needed my kids to stay well for just one more week. I needed my nanny to be around instead of having to work around her medical appointments. I needed to pause showings and house plans for a minute.
But, none of those things happened. And so, I’m sinking.
