This week hasn’t been easy. My recovery from the 3-Day hasn’t been that bad physically. My blisters are going away and I actually did the Couch to 5K with my son tonight. So my feet and my body seem to be just fine. But my head? My head is just not attached – not in the right place at all. I feel like I’ve done a whole lotta nothing all week long.
Now I would just attribute this to the 3-Day and get a good night’s sleep tonight and that would be that.  But it seems my productivity goes in fits and spurts. You know I don’t expect to be super productive person all the time, but I would like a bit of consistency.

I would also like to figure it all out. How to best fit everything I need to do into the day. There’s the housework (hate it!), the cooking, the shopping, the mom-shuttle service, and then of course the designing and the knitting. The mom shuttle is kind of killing me. There are some days I end up making six roundtrips up to school. I think I need to turn the van into some sort of home away from home. If I could only justify some mobile internet for the vinnieman…

So yep, I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. Any tips for being supermom?

    Here’s my 2 cents: Set the timer for 15 minutes and do what you can as far as picking up/straightening/cleaning in the main areas of the house. Delegate some of the house work to the kids (you probably already do this). Don’t beat yourself up if the house isn’t perfect. I tell people if they come over; come to see me not my house.
    As far as being consistant with your design work…do you set daily/weekly/monthly/yearly goals? I always work better with a goal.

    It also helps to hear that you’re doing a good job, too. Remind the people you love that you need to hear that from them once in a while. Come on, you’re surrounded by men, they need reminding on just about everything, right? LOL

    For me, activity also comes in spurts. Nothing, nothing, nothing… whammo! Get lots of stuff done in a short time, then nothing for a while longer. I guess the best we can do is try to be consistent, but it doesn’t always work.
    Also, a 3-Day is incredibly exhausting, physically. Don’t know about you, but I find my brain doesn’t work when my body is tired, even if I don’t feel the fatigue in other ways. Give yourself a couple more days, make sure you get all the food/vitamins you need, and I hope that fixes your issues.
