I need some practical advice. I don't want to sound negative, but I want to see if anyone can relate to my situation and offer some practical advice for organizing my life. I work part time and have three children ages 14, 10, and 20 months. My 14 and 10 year old are each involved in activities outside school. I work Wed. nights, Thursdays, Fridays, and one weekend a month. I just finished my weekend for May. I am fatigued and achey. My house is trashed. Dirty dishes are overflowing from the sink, I have at least 10 loads of laundry to do, we have no food or laundry detergent, the bathrooms are dirty, etc. Add to this an active 20 month old who needs my attention and you really get the picture. I want to get in the car and drive until I run out of gas. I love my family and these feelings cause me a great deal of guilt. However, I am overwhelmed. My husband is a photographer and wants to start a business on the side. He will be taking pictures and I will be handling everything else. The phone, scheduling. billing, ordering, etc. Please does anyone have any advice? I feel like I am failing in every area. I don't even want to go to my children's games and concerts. What is wrong with me? I need help!!!!!!!!!

Add in the rest of life, and I'm... well, meta-stressed? I dunno.***To sum...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. 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...
