This plus that equals…. worries
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about the little things that are worrying me at the moment.
L got into his first choice school, great, no worries there. But I am worried about lot of the things that come with it.
I’m worried if he’ll like it or not. If he’ll settle in. Will he make friends?
I’m worried about me, I really don’t think I’ll handle this well. I am going to miss him so much.
I’m also worried about the logistics. How will I fit my hours in at work. How will we ever have enough holiday to cover the school holidays and have family time.
I’ve noticed recently I’ve started that all familiar spiral. I struggle with any motivation. I am tired and will sleep at the drop of a hat. I feel that tightness and anxiety in my chest.
None of these are good signs for me. Not at all.
I’d like to try and pull myself back whilst I am still able but I am a little worried I didn’t notice soon enough.
Taking on too much
Husb potentially working away. An extension on the horizon. L starting school. All the holidays. Staying busy blogging. Trying to have a social life.
There is so much happening or about to happen.
Big things, things over and above the daily work we already juggle.
I know I’m overstretched but have I stretched the whole family too thin?
This may be a silly thing to worry about but I cannot remember the last time L was ill. He’s had a sniffle here and there but nothing that has amounted to anything.
I genuinely can’t remember him being properly ill for at least a year and husbs and I have both been pretty healthy too. We haven’t been really ill since the last time L was and he infected all of us!!
This worries me. It’s like I’m just waiting for something to happen. Ridiculous I know but I can’t help it.
One of my work besties has got a new job. Hurrah!! I couldn’t be more happy for her.
I’m worried her replacement won’t be as good though.
We have a very small and tight knit team. I’ve already been through a couple of ‘wrong’ people and seen what it does to the whole atmosphere.
Quite frankly I just don’t think I can put up with that again at the moment. Work is currently my place of safety.
It’s nice and structured, I don’t have to think too hard, I’ve got ace friends and it’s fun. I need my little haven!
I know I’m worrying about a lot of things I have zero control over, but that’s often the way, as if I could control it I wouldn’t be worried!
Finally, I’m linking up with #TwinklyTuesday, #Blogstravaganza, #StayClassyMama and #fortheloveofBLOG
