Feeling Overwhelmed???

What do you do when you feel overwhelmed?  Do you sometimes do nothing, which makes you feel even more overwhelmed? Do you get paralyzed  by the enormous task at hand?  I know sometimes when you feel like a project is so big you don't know where to start, so you don't.

That feeling can be like a huge mountain sitting on your shoulders.  Which would definitely explain the huge knots in my traps.  After all carrying around a mountain is is extremely heavy.

My house for me is my enormous task with legs and arms that keep getting longer. So, how do I handle it?  I do what every avoiding strategic mom would do, I start a different project, before I know it I have multiple projects going on.  Which leads to what...the feeling of being even more overwhelmed.  Living in an older house with endless projects and an economy that is sucking us dry (i.e. gas prices), what is a home owner to do?

My goal at hand is to try to be more disciplined and take one project at a time. Resist the temptation of starting another before I complete the first project.  I am also going to keep in mind to be patient and start with the things that are a must do first and that I can financially afford. Remember that I will eventually get to them all, even if it does not feel like it at the moment.  Maybe at that point I can stop carrying around the mountain and just stick to carrying the twins.
