Something's Gotta Give
This is kinda how I've been feeling this week (btw I love this film!!) My life is so jam packed atm that unless I take a proactive approach the universe is going to do it for me and I'll have no control over what gives.
The one big thing I learned about myself from my counselling course was that I'm a control freak and it's actually very common in women especially working mothers. It's not the need to be in control of other people but the need to be in control of the things happening in your own life. Well, that's just impossible as it's interaction with other people that make life unpredictable.
I've stumbled into a full time job that I absolutely love. I was expecting a short term contract that would ease me back into teaching but the opportunity to extend it to a year was too good to pass. But it's meant that my home life has been chaos ever since and being ill over the Christmas holidays meant I didn't get myself as organised as I could.
So, this weekend needs to be a thinking and planning one. How can I give my job 100% whilst keeping on top of housework, food shopping, cooking, going to the gym, my OU course, DS's school stuff etc? I still have unpacked boxes despite moving here 6 months ago and don't even get me started on decorating!!
Right, I'm off to start writing lists. Lists always help me focus. I always find answers there :-)
