Struggling

I know this post is unlike my usual entries, but today, I'm struggling. I'm tired and am having a hard time focusing on the things I need to do. My work load is piling up and deadlines are looming. Honestly, at this moment, it is hard to see my way out of it.

I know I will get myself through this round of projects, but gosh, I feel like running and hiding. It doesn't help that I'm fending off a nasty virus and sleep has been difficult to say the very least for me.

The girls are picking up on the stress level, and we've seen some unfavorable behaviors. I know this too shall pass, but I need a break. Sometimes being a professional, a mommy, a wife, a friend, and a volunteer doesn't leave much time for me. I'm depleted and exhausted.

I'm not looking for sympathy rather I'm venting all of this stress here so I can begin to feel better. There are much worse things I can think of that could be happening to me, but right now, I'm having a hard time with my load.

Please know that I am here for you if you need a friend to vent through. God only knows how much you have been there for me. ALWAYS. While I too am having a rough go of it lately, it makes me feel better when I know that I am being a good friend. Love you!

Praying that you will find your way through soon Jen -- I really feel for you on this one. There just haven't been enough hours in the day lately for me as well.
