Idiom : ” bitten off more than you can chew!”

I think you’ve ” bitten off more than you can chew!”

This phrase means you have taken on too much responsibility, you have too many commitments at once and you cannot complete them.

Example:   By purchasing that huge new house John has bitten off way more than he can chew! The mortgage payment is enormous! I don’t know how he’s going to pay it every month!

We all have felt that way at one time or another in our lives, haven’t we?? 🙂

(Yes, Cindy!  That reminds me of the song “My Way” :  ‘ Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew, When I bit off more than I could chew….’  *Marta*)
