Who else is feeling this way. I just an not productive any longer. Last year at this time I was working 12 hour days. This year I am productive perhaps 5 hours. I have deadlines that I need to complete prior to little Ellianna's arrival - not confident that will happen.
Then there is a hundred and one events. From now until DD I have work daily, a Bat Mitzvah, a wedding to attend, two swim events for our son each well over an hour away (and the event is 4 hours), a 50th b-day party, a 60 b-day party, a formal fundraiser, another gala event (Charity), and I feel this list could grow.
Nursery - yeah planned on that getting all done by now. Well the walls are painted and hopefully the furniture will arrive within 2 weeks. Curtains are hung. Do not question all the other housework I need to complete.
If that gets done then it is time for Ellianna. Do not get this wrong. We are thrilled for her. We just know that life will be even 100% crazier.
Who else is really far from where they need to get.
I'm still feeling pretty good energy wise, don't get me wrong I am exhausted by the end of the day but during the day I'm getting things done. I don't know how our working moms do it, mad props to you ladies.
By the time I get home from work I'm pretty much useless, but I try to get some things done on the weekends. Yesterday I went shopping and got everything I need so I can pack for the hospital. The nursery is ready to be filled with all the stuff we get from our shower on Saturday.
I feel like every step forward I take in getting ready, three more pop up in front of me that I didn't think of needing to get done. And this time of year gets crazy for us with end of school activities, summer activities, DH's softball league, etc.

I feel so tired most days. Work completely exhausts me (I'm a teacher) and then I have a 5 year old. Most nights I am sooooo tired just driving home from work (1/2 hour each way) and then when I get home there are chores, dinner, playing with dd, bedtime, schoolwork for me, etc. It's crazy!
I am on vacation this week (have been since last Friday) and I am just now coming to life, lol. We went to the park for over two hours, visited my sister, went shopping, played outside at home, and now I am exhausted!
