She ain't what she used to be...

This is my second week in water aerobics. Ohhhhhhhhh... I am tired. My back and knees are telling me I might be one of the youngest people in the class, but I am definitely no spring chicken any more.

The old grey mare she ain't what she used to be...

There's dishes undone. And I have a lot of homework. And volunteering at the middle school and then work at the office tomorrow. And doing a midday pickup because of finals at the high school this week. And chauffeuring kids hither and thither after school. And oh yes. People still want laundry done and dinner made and a semblance of order.

It is only week 2 of the semester. And I am feeling whelmed. (not OVERwhelmed, mind you.)

Please PLEASE someone tell me that it is easier when one is not balancing husband and kids and work AND seminary. It doesn't have to be easy. Just easy-ER.

sigh...

All this and you're only "whelmed". Very impressive!! That's a 10.0 no doubt.

Definitely easy-ER without children and husband to care for!

And, you can do it .. one of my classmates had four children and husband helping her by sharing the load at home -;)

Your post has made me tired.

You can do this.

what does that "age appropriate chores" book say about laundry? or was that somebody else on PAM promoting that book?

Hang in there - you can do it!

Sigh... Oh. The laundry is frequently done by someone else. We've only had pink socks a few times. And someone else will do the dishes and the vacuuming. It is just that (maybe it's only me) but if I don't remind, cajole or nag, it doesn't happen. And I get tired of that. That's all...
sigh.

You have a lot on your plate, but you can do it. I bet there are some other folks that can do laundry.
