Whose in control of this life anyways?

I've been in school for nine weeks now. You would think by now I would've returned to some sense of normalcy within my family but I haven't. Not even close. I love my classes, I love what I'm learning, and I'm so excited to start a career in the occupational therapy field but I do not love the craziness, chaos, and complete lack of order that has happened in my home.

I'm completely exhausted all the time, yet of course have problems falling asleep at night. I forget things like putting an extra change of underwear in Brian's backpack. I completely lost Corbin's homework folder- I know I had it then poof it disapeared into thin air. My house is a wreck!! Josh and I just had our first "date night" in forever. My friends are complaining that I've dropped off the face of the planet. Everyone is picking out their clothes from the baskets of clean clothes rather than their bureaus.

I know this is normal and that I need to let some things go. Not every single aspect of my life can be "perfect" but I have issues with letting go of control. Hoping by the second semester this life of mine will feel like my own again.
