Multitasking Meltdown

Aug 26, 2010

It’s 11am. I’m still sitting in bed. I haven’t showered in two days. I’ve had to pee for the past 30 minutes, but I can’t break away from my computer. Have I eaten today? My stomach is telling me no. My screen is flooded with web browsers and applications. I fear that if I open one more thing, my computer may crash on me. In the background, I hear my pastor’s voice as last week’s sermon plays. To be honest, that’s all it is right now…background. I try to listen, but my mind is being flooded as I try to jump from one thing to the next. In the midst I’m also searching online for the latest camera hoping to find a great deal. But wait, my FB keeps beckoning me as I chat with my second shooter about this Saturday’s wedding along with 2 other people just because. My phone rings. It’s my best friend. Can’t talk long…too much to do. Oh my goodness, I haven’t even started editing yet today. I still have to pee. I really miss Joe. This is how my mind has been lately. Three hundred different things all competing for my attention. But there’s only ONE me. I need to SLOW down. Take a BREATH. PRIORITIZE. Either that or grow 6 more arms and install a toilet next to my workspace. Do you ever feel like this?

What does this photo have to do with this post? NOTHING! It just makes me happy :)

    I feel that way often that’s why Jayson and I have decided to element things from our own schedule. I don’t want to be that mom that is feeding my kids in the car while we’re running from one activity to another and my daughter is struggling to keep up with homework because she life has been over scheduled by her crazy but loving mother. :-)

    As a mother of 3 kids, who are over-scheduled, I feel like this daily! I need to be a little more like Bobbie, but I just cannot figure out how and what to cut out! I cannot find the time to work on my own site/blog because there is not much extra time in my day! Then again….there’s always time for Facebook and reading other’s blogs! Deep breaths….this too shall pass! Love your new stuff!

    Does it make you sad to see this picture, or excited to get home in less than a week? Probably both. Hi, Joe!

    My life always feels like this wondering if there is enough time in the day to do all that has my name on it. Then I realize if I start my day with pray somehow the hours are longer, it’s more peaceful and somehow I get everything accomplished I should. Kudo’s to God!
