Feeling Somewhat Stressed Right Now

I am not even going to lie and pretend to be happy-go-lucky...I’m feeling stressed right about now. I’m just overwhelmed with trying to do several things at once.

Let’s start with babysitting. I love those kiddies, so please don’t get me wrong, but the two youngest ones have been testing me today. This is especially true for the youngest of the bunch. Now my two nieces went home about a half hour or so ago, and he is still trying to see how far he can push me. He’s -not- a bad kid, he’s a year and a half and still learning, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t get stressed out. Once again, please know that I do love these kids to pieces, I guess it’s just been an off-week for us all.

Then there is my writing. I was motivated earlier, and now I just don’t feel like doing it anymore. I do have two assignments left, so if I just buckle down, I can finish up in no time. But the motivation has been drained and I just want to go lay down...but that’s not an option right now.

I just need some time to myself, without anyone bothering me for this or that. I want to just lay down and watch a movie, or work on my collage or play on my tablet.

But I have responsibilities; a munchkin to babysit and assignments to complete. I cannot always “take a break” at the drop of a hat, so I need to suck it up for a little while longer.

I’m gonna go and finish up my work and do whatever. My head hurts. I hope you all are having a better day than I am. Take care.

Babysitting is really stressing. I know that. I hope that you loosen up a bit and relax.

Being a parent, and having been a babysitter, I can understand how you feel. It's not always easy. I hope that tomorrow goes better.

GemstonePink cheri and Colibry21 - Thanks, guys. I really appreciate it. I hope tomorrow is better, seriously, lol. BUT, at least tomorrow is Friday. :)

Maybe when the kiddo gets picked up you can take a much deserved soak in the tub. Then you can get to work after that, more clear headed and happy.

Hope you get by with your day and finish your writing assignments. When you look back, you will say to yourself that these was all worth it.
