Running Around Like Turkey Without a Head

November 26th, 2013 at 08:27 pm

I feel like I am over stressed and overloaded!

I an at work now. I get off in 2 hours. Then I have 1.5 hours to go to the store, pick up everything for Thanksgiving, and get home and cook dinner before I have to go to school.

I have not even done my homework for school tonight yet!

I won't get home until 11pm. Then it is up again at 7 and back to work until 4pm again. Then at 5pm we go to my grandparents to eat dinner.

Our friends all are home for the holidays, and husband told me yesterday he invited his friends over to visit tomorrow night at 6pm!

So I'll have 1 hour tomorrow after work to drive home and clean the entire house before we have guests!

Then Thursday we are eating with his family at 11am, then I'm going home for a couple hours to cook for my family. Then we have to go back to his parents to put up their Christmas tree. Won't be back until late.

Friday I am going shopping, then it's my families dinner and thanksgiving.

Not to mention it is also FINALS week for one of my classes at school! Ahhhhh.

I am also super busy at work, and I have no idea how I am ever going to get it all done. I am freaking out a little!

Whew. This week is going to be the death of me.

I also have not bought one single Christmas present yet, or have any ideas. I have no idea when we are going to get time to decorate our house or put up our tree.

I love the holidays. But they also bring a huge amount of stress.

Pray that I can make it thought. *gulp*

    I'm a little stressed too, but trying to keep it all in perspective and know that it can't be perfect. Ever.

    Make your dinner a simple one a can of soup, or pick a pizza. Definitely have your husband help with the cleaning and prep for your friends gathering! And if some area doesn't get clean than so just live there and have been super busy. I'm sure they are more excited to see you than how well you have cleaned for them.

    So tomorrow, you work until 4pm, have to be at your grandparents for dinner at 5pm, and have friends coming to your house for dinner at 6pm? Goodness, no wonder you are feeling stressed.

    I agree with CCF, if hubby invited guests, hubby gets to clean before they arrive.

    Yes that is correct Petunia! The problem is husband won't get home from work until 5pm, so he is meeting me at the grandparents. So no cleaning for him.

    It's craziness around here. I'm thinking I'll just have to get up early before work tomorrow and clean like a mad woman.

    OMG.....deep breath...i'd dispense with the cleaning and go "au natural." And yes, pizza to the rescue!

    Agree with PS -- you just can't do it all! Enjoy your guests and the hectic ambiance!
