I have been MIA. I know. Honestly, I am barely keeping my head above water. I have a work deadline Sunday, a sassy toddler who clearly doesn’t get the power of Santa, a baby who is sleep regressing, Christmas mumbo jumbo, daycare scheduling issues, general home life duties and stuff I am probably forgetting. I opened my calendar for next week and saw a “lady dr” appointment and just sighed “fuuuuuck”. Totally rescheduling that. My junk is fine for now. Baby shot out of there just 4 months ago. I can’t seem to find a break. Overwhelmed is the word of the moment.
Silver lining though: I can happily state this isn’t a call for help (unless you wanna Christmas shop for me). Sometimes life is hectic but ya gotta trudge through. Accept help where you can get it and just survive. This is one. I don’t feel hopeless or weepy, just tired and scatterbrained. To me, this is a good thing.
Ya see, after Landon was born, something similarly happened. I started a new position, had a new baby, Christmas, dog was losing weight for some reason and I was really overwhelmed. Then for some dumb reason we decided to try CIO to get more sleep and I had big relapse with my PPD. It wasn’t pretty. This time I know it is just a phase. January will bring a slow down and I can finally breathe. While overwhelmed, I’m not drowning…just doggie paddling.
