Can’t Seem to Catch a Break

My son’s asthma has flared up again. Today was supposed to be a “catch up” day, and I am instead spending it on taking care of him, driving him into school late, and then running around getting paperwork together for the newest doctor that he saw yesterday for the first time (for his attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder – ADHD). Couple this with my new keyboard dying (thank goodness I saved the old one as a backup!). I am beginning to conclude that my to-do list will never be completed, and I guess the chips are just going to have to fall where they may. I am only one person, and I have entirely too much on me. I am about ready to quit everything in my life, live in my room, eat bonbons, and forget the rest of the world.

Believe it or not, I am doing okay despite all of the outside stressors. It is incredibly frustrating to recognize that never in my life will I ever get a break or catch up. So, I popped a couple of Xanax and plan to take a leisurely lunch before trying to knock out one or two things before my kid gets home from school. I don’t know what else to do. I cannot run perpetually at maximum capacity, so I guess a whole lot of @#$% that has been dumped on my to-do plate just won’t be getting done. C’est la vie.
