Stretched thin

I told you about the other blog that I started called From Toddlers2Teens. That's where I post my issues with having children of multiple generations or what I call multigenerational. But I had to tell you - my "It's a woman's world" friends - what is going on today.

It's just one of those days... I am filling out one of Amber's college applications while she is in the kitchen being tutored in Calculus. My son is laying on the floor watching a movie with all kinds of little trucks and cars scattered about and my 3-year-old daughter is outside playing with bubbles.

My son didn't want to go outside with her so since she's out there by herself I keep getting up and down to check on her. That makes for a stressful time trying to concentrate on the application, which should have been filled out weeks ago. After Amber is finished with the tutor (an adult has to be home during the session) I'll rush out of the house to pick up the baby before the cutoff time.

(Maybe if I'm lucky the teenager will offer to pick up the baby for me. Keep your fingers crossed.)

Then I'll rush back home to get dinner together, answer emails, pay some bills and anything else on my to-do list I can get completed before I turn in tonight. Unfortunately this is one of those days when I am just exhausted thus the feeling of being s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d too thin.

This doesn't count having to stop by the car place to get the van checked, attending the Parent Committee meeting at the middle children's school or taking them to the store after school like I promised yesterday.

My only hope for the day is that I am able to go to bed early because I think I am almost out of steam. Maybe if I can get a good night's rest then I'll be energized to tackle everything I need to do tomorrow.
