So Much To Do, So Little Time

ClockLately I have been so overwhelmed with everything there is to do.  There just aren’t enough hours in the day to fit it all in and I feel like I am getting further and further behind on things.  I just can’t seem to keep up with everything… how do people do it??

Work.  I have been lucky enough to cut down my work schedule to four days a week now.  I have most Wednesdays off and then I come in a bit earlier the other four days to catch up on what I missed.  This has made a huge difference since traffic is much lighter at that time and it gives me an entire day to catch up on things.

Food.  Everything on our new diet is so time consuming to prepare.  I feel like my life is being planned around my allergies.  We can’t go out without first planning what food I need to bring with me since I can’t order from restaurants anymore.  Everything needs to be made from scratch.  This is taking a lot of adjustments for me as I’m used to quick and easy meals, not to mention the amount of dishes I accumulate cooking that way!

Shots.  One of the reasons I chose Wednesdays to be off was that it is my shots day.  Going in for my shots is not a very quick appointment.  After checking in, going over any reactions from last week’s shot, and then getting all four shots… they make you wait in the waiting room for thirty minutes to make sure you are okay before you leave.  I’m gone for at least two hours, on a good week, to get shots.

Life.  Between all the new time demands in my schedule, I haven’t found much (or any) time for fun stuff… no scrapbooking, no reading, not so much blogging.  All of that time has been replaced with extra grocery trips for more fresh foods, chopping fruits and veggies, chopping, more chopping, and cleaning (since I’m not allowed to have dust anymore)!  Plus there are always little projects we need to work on around the house, such as cleaning out the hall closet since it wont close anymore.

My brain is just too full always thinking ahead about all the stuff I need to do next.  I find my self sitting on the couch stressed out about all the stuff I need to get done that day, but I’m stuck there because I just don’t know where to start.
