I'm feeling pretty stoooooopid because last spring I was asked to be on the board of directors (specifically as chairman) of a non-profit I have been a part of for a while, I accepted, and at first it was fine, but in the last few weeks I suddenly don't have time!
I'm dropping the ball big time. It started with DS1 taking on some extra activities after school (at my suggestion, I didn't realize how time intensive they would be), then DD3 started going through some kind of high-drama phase which is turning everything into an ordeal. And my youngest is battling recurring ear infections, which means I am getting NO sleep lately and I'm trying to juggle all the pede visits and follow-ups.
It doesn't help that DH and I are having some financial trouble to boot, so there's just the stress of that which is formidable. I keep forgetting about phone calls I am supposed to be making, following up on letters and meetings and, oh I am just so freaking tired!
Anyway, I don't know what to do. I kind of want to just quit, but I know that won't solve everything. I'll just end up with a lot of people angry at me, which seems even more stressful. They are already frustrated with me for doing a crappy job. I'm delegating what I can. I'm sure if I had more sleep I could think straight about this.
Advise or commiseration welcome!!!
