Lately I've been feeling so overwhelmed by the simplest things. No problems with work, that's going fine (except for my "new", incompetent, disorganized boss, who has no clue that she's so inept). It's the things at home that are getting to me. This house needs a major cleaning and organizing from top to bottom. It seems hard to keep track of which bill to pay when, let alone try to figure out how to afford them. Then there are medical appointments that need to be made and carried out, and trying to find the time (and energy) to go to them. I get my medical benefits next week and need to schedule a doctor's appointment, CAT scan, mammogram, would like to start therapy, both my kids need to start counseling again, etc. This is all in addition to their school activities, their usual dentist appointments and yearly physicals, juggling their homework with housework and a full-time job--getting this all done as a single mom. I've also been lonely lately (foreign territory to me) and would like to re-develop some sort of social life apart from being mom (IF I knew how and could find the time and energy!). It's like I get paralyzed just by the thought of all these things. I realize what needs to be done, then can't seem to get started on anything. Anyone else go through this, and what do you do to help it? I've tried lists, but they seem to be a bigger stressor.

Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
