Do you ever have that feeling when you have so much to do, you don’t know where to start, so you just feel paralyzed?
That’s where I am this morning.
I’m trying to figure out where and how to start.
I know that I need to change the bed in and clean the guest room because my mom has left and my in-laws are headed here in a few days.
I have this project, which I want to start working on:
And I also have this project:
These are all my kids’ papers and projects and art from this school year. Our school year ends this week, and the kids are bringing home mounds of paper and art each day. I want to get a jump on this and get it organized and cleaned out while they are bringing home all the art and paper, rather than waiting until summer.
And, at some point, I want to get outside and garden.
I’m thinking that, because it’s supposed to rain tomorrow (again), I will work on the table today outside and then work on the papers and art and cleaning tomorrow, when I will be inside all day. Maybe I can work in the garden next week.
Do you ever have this feeling? How do you sort through everything and decide what to do first?
Thank you for stopping by!
Oh my, I have that same table. 🙂 Donated it to the office but still have the octagonal coffee table to match. I’ve thought about painting it so will be watching for your finished project. Unfortunately when I feel overwhelmed, I become paralyzed and end up not accomplishing any of the projects. Eventually I grab one thing and start…anything just to get myself moving forward. And with some things, I end up abandoning the idea just so it isn’t hanging over my head.

That’s exactly how I feel! I like your advice of just grabbing one thing and starting – that’s a plan!

That’s my life- overwhelmed! It paralyzes me and as a result, my house is a disaster, which stresses me, which paralyzed me even farther. Ack!
Karen Cooper says
Ugh, Sheila. Well, at least now we know we aren’t alone!
