Mom + Work + School + Life = Sick and Exhasted

Although I didn't have a lot of readers comment last week, I received some confirmation that I don't know how to say no very well.  This week was another crazy week with little time to reflect. 

The second week of testing for the students at work had me so exhasted that I really want a day off next week.  I came home everyday without the energy to walk our dog, work with Elyse, or spend quality time with Rick.  Now, I am sick.  Not bad, just sinus presure that is really painful.  From about my shoulders up it hurts.  It makes homework, fun time with my family, and chores really difficult to accomplish. 

Rick is worried that I am sacrificing my own health because I can't say no.  I forget the my MCND can really effect my immune system and when I don't get enough sleep I am more likely to get sick. 

So what do I do?  At what point am I sacrificing time with my family and friends and my health because I don't want to disapoint anyone.  Any advice?
