Am I Alone?

I am so over whelmed right now. Between taking care of Kaiya, looking for child care, sending out resumes for a job in the fall, filling out application forms for my student loans, getting my schooling together (yup I am going back to school) and trying to start up my own business and creating those things to sell in it, all on my own (no spousal support here) I am just way over my head. Today I was supposed to have an interview with a day home for Kaiya and the people weren't even home when I showed up at the scheduled time. Turns out that I forgot to confirm with them, I almost cried. I was so upset with myself for forgetting something so significant. But then again it was easy to forget when you have so much on your plate. I think I have bitten off way more than I can chew, any suggestions on how to relieve stress that is in the free department?


  1. Aw. I'm sorry to hear that.
    Baths are always awesome, going for a walk help me.
    Even just lying down and thinking help as well.
    And I know you aren't crazy about it but yoga really helps me.
    Oh, and if you ever ever need any help with taking care of Kaiya, I am totally here to help!

  2. You could always come over for a girls night :)
    Obviously I would bake, which is always a great way to relieve stress (the eating part, that is). Email me if you're interested :)

  3. Feel free to drop Kaiya off with me if you ever need a few hours to get stuff done! Seriously!!!

  4. Do something relaxing with Kaiya. Take a bubble bath with her. Don't worry about anything else but enjoying the moment. Put everything else on hold until the next day. Consider it your night off.

  5. Oh yeah and no you are not alone. I feel this way about once a week. I feel better after I remind myself that I'm probably taking on more than is expected and that not everything has to be done perfectly. Sticky notes are your friend for remembering what needs to be done.
