Sunday Anxiety

At breakfast on Sunday, us girls were talking about how everyone has issues. I definitely have many issues, but here's one of the ones I need to deal with...Sunday night anxiety.

I never sleep good on Sunday nights. I stay up way too late and I can't sleep and then I am tired all day at work the following day. This makes for a long Monday. My problem is that on the weekends I totally get into the groove of spending time with my family and taking care of the kids. So, when Sunday nights roll around, I start feeling major anxiety--anxiety about all of the things that I should have taken care of on the weekend, how I'll miss the kids when I go to work and how much crazy stuff I'll have to deal with during the work week and of course, how exhausted I will feel at the end of it all. And guess what? The cycle happens over and over again each week.

This must just be the mom in me feeling guilty about not doing enough for my kids and my family. But, I have to work...so it is what it is and I have to suck it up and deal with it!


  1. Jenn, I can't sleep either. My advice is save Sunday nights for Advil PM. The liquid capsules are the best, not the regular ones! Nyquil is also a good one too. The Advil PM seems less addicting though and more approved of by the general public. And if you're only taking it on Sunday, they can't call you an addict. ;-)

  2. So I can't really relate yet but how about on Sunday nights thinking at this point in the weekend is the closest you'll be until the next weekend when you can enjoy the company of your family and get done whatever needs to get done. This is probably not good advice - but it's all I got! And what do you mean we all have issues? I'm PERFECT! Jk :)
