How I've been feeling today:

Overwhelmed I need to understand why, when I get up in the morning and think of all that needs to be done, I sometimes get so overwhelmed that I am almost frozen. I don't accomplish much of what I set out to do...because every time I think of it I get alarmed. And then I just sit down and read or something.

Overindulgent I bought mellowcreme pumpkins yesterday. I ate half the bag today. I also ate some cookies and some pudding and even a few M&Ms. Not really sure of the healthy stuff I ate...but a good-for-me dinner is cooking as I write this.

Overdramatic Let's just say I've been making mountains out of molehills lately. Whether or not it is because my kids just took every single toy in the playroom out of the bins, or because Chloe drew all over herself, or because Bria would only play "Lightly Row" once, or because I just can't seem to handle life today, I don't know.

Overanxious Basically, see "overwhelmed"...I have so much to accomplish, that I feel like I can't, and then I don't, and then I worry that it won't get done, and then it doesn't and then I beat myself up and then I start over again.

Oversensitive I'm taking things very personally today. From everyone. So, please, if you don't have anything 100% nice to say to me, wait until tomorrow to say it.

Overstimulated I think if Chloe turns on the Baby Monet DVD one more time and just lets it play and play and play the selection menu I will scream. Curse the day she learned how to work the tech stuff...I keep turning it off, but I think the battle of wills is currently being won by the two year old.

Overweight See "overindulgent"...I'm even wearing overalls today (no pun intended) and I feel like they are too tight. Not a good sign...
