In exactly 10 hours from now, at 5:30 am, I’m going to pull out of my driveway and hit the road for vacation.
And yet, at this point, I am still working. And I’m still packing.
Two days ago, I woke up in a cold sweat about my many pre-vacation obligations, checked my email and found this message from another mom,
“Fighting the feeling of being utterly overwhelmed.”
Two more times that same day I had friends use the word “overwhelmed” to describe how they were feeling – about jobs, kids, caregiving, all of the above.
