You know that feeling when you realize you are very, very busy, but if you balance everything just right you can make it work? You know, when you start each morning not thinking of the big picture of the projects but just of what small segments of all those big things need to be done today?
That’s been my life lately. As long as I keep my head down and work on today’s minutia then I’m okay for one more day. If I think about the big picture then I realize how busy I am and I start to panic. It’s a very delicate balance between what I need to do, and what I need to do as a mother (like: be there.)
The things about this particular feeling is that it’s not long after you get here, that one more thing gets thrown at you to juggle. That’s how I felt right before I became primary president. And it’s how I feel right now. And I’ll tell you what, I think things are about to change again really soon.
