WASHINGTON, USA: Running on Empty

“Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels, looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields.”  I hear Jackson Browne on the radio, and I realize that he just described the way I have been feeling over the past two months. 

The last year has FLOWN by so fast!  As I look back, I feel like I haven’t had control over how fast the days unraveled. 

The juggling between working professional,  wife and mother, have made me feel like I’ve been “running on”, but add in Kindergarten research and house-hunting to the mix and I’m just tired and feel like I’m “running on empty” . 

It didn’t feel like this exhausting when there was just one child to care for.  (I know, that’s a no brainer.) 

I honestly don’t know how women do it with more than two kids…my hat goes off to you ladies!  (more…)

Eva Fannon (USA)

Eva Fannon is a working mom who lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her hubby and two girls. She was born and raised on the east coast and followed her husband out west when he got a job offer that he couldn't refuse. Eva has always been a planner, so it took her a while to accept that no matter how much you plan and prepare, being a mom means a new and different state of "normal". Despite the craziness on most weekday mornings (getting a family of four out the door in time for work and school is no easy task!), she wouldn't trade being a mother for anything in the world. She and her husband are working on introducing the girls to the things they love - travel, the great outdoors, and enjoying time with family and friends. Eva can be found on Twitter @evafannon.
