Feeling Stressed From All the Responsibilities

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

It is a rainy and dreary day today which is why I'm glad I have no where to go today. No appointments, no errands, etc. emoticon

I will take today to do some major organizing for the two church consignment sales I have coming up very soon. I'm practically panicking though because my daughter is not cooperating as fast as I need her to (to go through her spring/summer clothes) and I can always use the extra space and money.

I love selling these items, but hate the work and commitment involved. That's not to say I hate work, I just hate this particular work, LOL.

I also have some events coming up very soon with our homeschool group that I think will turn out to be my responsibility since my friend who co-owns the group is losing her voice. I was planning to do a presentation on the state I grew up in, co-moderate the group meeting, etc. but now it looks like I may be doing the entire presentation as well and she is the one who is organizing it, LOL!! That means I have to learn the things that she has been organizing and soon! emoticon

I don't know how well I will do since my voice is not the greatest either since I still have this lingering congestion that won't go away no matter how much I try to take care of it. I hope that the group can handle hearing me cough a million times, LOL.

I'm also doing some research on a science presentation I hope to give (did I mention that I panic big time talking in front of people?) as well as come up with some of the topics for our meeting after the presentation! emoticon

We hope to get more people on board to helping us out as it's really just the two of us doing 99.9% of the work and it's getting a little frustrating and stressful to say the least.

My son decided to hand me his "tons" of Legos to sell which means I have to sort all of them out into sets (hopefully with his help) for these sales and by now my head is spinning a hundred miles a minute wondering when I'm going to get all the time needed.

My friend who co-owns the homeschool group with me wants us to have a meeting the day before our presentation/meeting event and seriously I just see the stress building up.

My daughter has a book club event tomorrow, had piano lessons yesterday, Thursday I'm having a one-on-one meeting with my friend the co-owner of the group, and then Friday is a 4-5 hour event with our group with the presentations and group meeting.

Yesterday I managed to stop by JC Penney's because my husband called me while I was waiting for my daughter to finish her piano lessons and said he was in the area and could pick her up while I ran errands and he would take her home! emoticon

I seriously hate shopping on the weekend, so I took advantage of it and found myself 3 shirts that were marked down as well as a cute jacket at Ross Dress for Less.

    LOL, it is too much to deal with for me right now. Of course that is the way my life is, everything piled up on me at once which is why it is so stressful.

    Thanks for the tips!

    Your plate is full alright! You might encourage your daughter to take just five items a day out of her closet. I'm doing the same thing per week for 4 closets which works out to 20 items a week for a fall sale. It doesn't seem like much but I knew I had to start somewhere and thought okay I can do 5. She can probably manage 5 a day in about 5 minutes. Gie her a box and challenge her to fill it by the end of the week.
