I feel guilty all the time.
When I’m at work, I feel like I should be spending time with my nearly-84-year-old mom. Or possibly The Engineer if he’s home. At the very least, I should be available when Darling Daughter calls from college.
Sometimes I’m not.
If I’m doing housework or cooking, I feel like I should be writing.
And if I’m at the computer, I feel like I ought to be cleaning.
Or maybe exercising.
Heaven forbid if I sit down to read.
Somehow, I’m convinced that I ought to be able to fit in all these things and still have time to relax enough to be, well, serene and relaxed so I don’t drive everyone else insane!
Is this just a female thing?
Worse, could it possibly be just me?
