Do you ever feel like you have a million things to do??

It takes me a minute to get motivated in the morning but once I get started, I don't stop!! I don't mind doing chores around the house and taking care of my 9 week old but I can't relax because I feel like there are a million things to do!! For example, if I know there are dishes that need to be washed, I HAVE to do them! I can't sit down and watch TV without that AWFUL feeling! My mother and sister are the same way...are any of you ladies?

  • If i start cleaning i'm the same way, i look at the first room i did with satisfaction and then i just look at the next and say one more. Until i end up cleaning the whole house , laundry dishes, changing the air freshners and all. I can't sleep when if i put things off until the next day because it drives me nuts, thinking of a list of things i have to do tommrow while trying to get some winks. yes, i have the same problems to and my son is 5 mon.

  • Yes I am just like that, and now that I"m alittle older, my youngest child is 14. It seems I have less energy and just can't jump right on all those chores. It takes me longer to get things done. I"m trying to adjust, because I still have those awful feelings like I have so much to do, I can't just sit here and rest....but I have to now. I try to not feel so guilty, and accept that I am doing the best I can, I'm not being lazy.
