I’m just so tired. Not the kind of tired you feel after pulling an all-nighter studying for an exam the next day. Not the kind of tired that going for a brisk walk or having a cup of coffee can fixed. I mean the exhausted to the bone, always irritable not even a good night sleep can fix kind of tired.
I go to school, I have a photography business, I am a wife and a MOM. I am currently in the process of opening up a retail photography studio, taking it out of my home and into a retail space.
This is how my schedule currently looks like:
- Wake up at 6:00 and start work
- Little C wakes up and Big E gets ready for school.
- Take care of the house.
- Photo Shoot/Work
- Play with Little C
- Prepare dinner/clean up house
- Get ready for bed
- Spend time with my husband (he goes to bed at 9:30)
- Work from 9:30-1:00 am.
Somewhere in there I need to get some schoolwork done. I’m beginning to feel like my extreme exhaustion is taking its toll on the family. I feel snappier towards my husband and kids. My fuse has become almost non-existent. The worst part is I’m starting to feel like I’m ignoring my kid.
So something’s got to give right? The question is what?
