Married White Female Seeking Wife
Burning the candle at both ends is dangerous...eventually you get burned. I slathered Silvadene all over my ego and am feeling somewhat better.
Intellectually, I realize that I'm trying to do too much - mother, wife, blogger, beader, friend, teacher, physician. I can't do any of it well.
Something had to go. I gave up my scheduled lectures to the medical students. Yes, I'll miss it, but it's one "extra" that I could easily shave off the to-do list. I'll still have first and second years working with me now and then, so it'll keep me connected to the university.
Meanwhile, the house is a disaster. When I get home, I'm too tired to tackle the piles of stuff everywhere.
My colleague said it best: I need a wife. Do you think Husband would mind?
