((hugs)) Okay first, deep breath. Second, make a list. That always helps me. I like to write it all on a list and get it out and organized. Tackle things one by one rather than feeling overwhelmed as a whole. You’ve been through A LOT lately, so even though it seems like the last thing you have time for, you should really try to take an evening to relax. Maybe go for a massage, or at the very least have a nice long hot bath!

Ellen is on right now and I think this is appropriate:

It’s normal to feel this way after you literally had a dose of craziness in your house for two weeks! Just try to calm down and get back into your normal routine. If anything, use this as a reminder for how lucky you are that your life is nowhere near that chaotic all the time! And also be thankful Darling Husband didn’t turn out this way. =]

Take advantage of the time when they are at their violin lessons- have a relaxing bath, light a lovely candle, lay back and be kind to yourself.

Take a few minutes to yourself and relax!

PS. I think you’re doing a GREAT thing by homeschooling your girls. I was homeschooled and loved every minute of it. Good job!

@MrsFuzzyFace:  You are super woman! I love the picture that the PP posted!! Best advice!! Just keep doing as much as you can with out burning out. Everything will settle down soon, and you will be back on your regular schedule before you know it! Grab a warm drink (Or cold, which ever works for you at the moment) and take a few minutes for yourself. Try to calm your mind, remind youreself that life isn’t always like this, and breath!! It’ll get better 🙂 Maybe plan for a family movie night, pop on your favorite flick and kick back, or grab a book when you have some alone time (When Darling Husband takes the kids to their violen lesson) and loose yourself for awhile!
