Running on Empty


I wish that I were a robot. There I said it! I have been so incredibly tired lately and feeling overwhelmed by the growing list of tasks that I am trying to accomplish. I wish there were a way that I could just plug myself into the wall and recharge my batteries in 10 minutes and get back to accomplishing my list of chores.

Unfortunately, I, like most of you, am burdened with the need for sleep. My current shift at work isn’t very accommodating to this at the moment, but thankfully that ends as of Saturday and my days shouldn’t be 14 hours 5 days a week anymore.

I am struggling to stay motivated lately in life though. I have so many things that I want to do like organizing my photo collection on iPhoto which is comprised of over 6,000 photos and growing as I continue to play with my camera. I am also trying to finish the basement in our house, but have no desire to work on it without help because it is cold and dirty down there. I am trying to organize my contact list which is currently spread out over five different email providers and I have no idea about which phone numbers are current and which no longer work. I could continue to burden you with all the tasks on my long long long list, but I think you get the idea.

As a result of having so many projects on the go, I am consistently disappointing myself in not being able to accomplish any of them because my attention is going in way too many directions. I know I’m not the first person to be overwhelmed by life, nor will I be the last. However, I am struggling to keep my head above the water and roll out of bed to complete anything.

Which brings me back full circle to wishing that I were a robot because, on that note, I think I need a nap!
