Wow, I am a mess these days! Very unorganized, no memory, exhausted, binge eating and have no focus. I think one problem is the Zoloft that I started taking in June to help with some depression issues. I feel drugged. Iíve taken Prozac in the past without any side effects, so Iím going to talk to my doctor about switching or just going off the meds altogether. I just cannot wake up (I always feel tired) and Iím craving and eating sugary foods in an attempt to gain some energy, which of course is not working. Iím also gaining weight.

Financially, Iím wasting a lot of money on junk food and not paying attention to what Iím spending. In order to regain some order, I need to set some small goals. To start:

Today (after work):
*Walk today for 15 minutes (I hope to go longer once I get started, but I need to think small in order to get out and do it!)
*Set up autopay for my monthly electric bill and telephone bill (Iíve been paying bills late due to forgetting, not lack of funds, so this will help to solve that problem).
*Clean old food out of fridge (itís pretty gross in there!).
*Finish unpacking car from Labor Day weekend trip to Cape Cod.
*Find property tax paperwork and mark due date (October 1?) on calendar.

This weekend:
*Choose work outfits for next week.
Clean my house (itís a disaster!) Ė Iíll have to break this down into smaller goals.
Cook food for week (need to decide what to make).

Ok, Iíll start there and see what happens.

    My advice to you: take it one day at a time. I say this because I had a difficult transition moving my family from the carefree nature of a "summer off, doing no registered activities, only the pool and whatever we decided to do spur of the moment" to the structured reality of school, and a return to soccer, dance, Cub Scouts, volleyball, etc. I got quickly overwhelmed by looked at the calendar which has all the activities on it. I now focus one week at a time (knowing the activity schedule each day). I have also built in time for myself, like coffee with other moms or a trip to the library to pick out a DVD I'd like to watch.

    I'd pick one or two things from your list of to-dos and tackle those today. Cleaning your house: pick the rooms you spend the most time in. Relaxing and neat surroundings will help energize you. Talk to your doc too about your meds.

    Good luck!

    I love that word! Though I am sorry you are having troubles. I often have lots of trouble getting anything done. Prioritize and be proud of whatever you did do, the rest may or may not follow.

    I didn't think anyone actually used that word besides me.

    I used to live on the Cape...in Orleans, mainly, but also in Wellfleet. Where did you go? I love it there.

    Thanks for the comments. Laura, taking it one day at a time is good advice! I'm slowly getting a grip. PP, I love that word, too! PS, I was in Orleans - what a fabulous place! I definitely want to go back.
