Do you ever feel overwhelmed?

If so what do you do? I have so much to do and so little time.
I need to vacuum, clear the sink into the dishwasher, I mean it is not much today but I'd rather sit here with you ladies and waittil the last minuste to do it...oh and my dh can tell He'll say so I see you were busting ass the last minute.

  • I actually started having anxiety after I had my DS. I just recently started taking this herb/vitamin called True Calm. I only take it when I feel like I can't handle anymore or I will burst. It works great and it doesn't have any side affects. It's all natural. It keeps me focused and calm. The best part is that I don't feel like I've taken anything. I just feel like myself :)

  • Yes, but not because of housework, hubby and I share this 50/50 but I get overwhelmed at the stress of taking care of my mom who is 92. What I do to distress is spend a few hours at the beach to clear my head.

  • Nice to know I'm not the only one who puts it off, and then busts my butt the last hour or yes, I get overwhelmed, especially if I've taken a few days off from cleaning (like over the weekend) bc no one really picks up after themselves it seems like..dd's close to 3 so I stay on her about getting her toys put back up when she's done with them,..and I've just left dh's things where they lay and mention it to him about picking his things up..
