I love being busy, it keeps my mind from thinking too much. But I've felt so overwhelmed this week with the list of things I need to do in such a short period of time.
Last week I was on a business trip, which resulted in a lot of work that needed to get done in such a short period of time. Even today, when I took a day off, I did two hours of work in the morning, a few minutes in the afternoon and then again in the evening.
This week is also our local carnival, which I volunteer at. I hoped to work 4 nights, but I cancelled tonight because there were so many other things I had to do that are more important.
Then there was my 'eviction' that I found out about on Saturday. So I had to buy some furniture. I went to IKEA to pick up a few items, but forgot the one item that I went there for. Grr. I haven't gotten around to packing anything yet or going through all my boxes in the basement and taking out a few kitchen items & other things I'll need. I am hoping to assemble some of that IKEA stuff tomorrow and I guess on Friday move the 'small' stuff and on Sunday the big stuff. Oh right, and I have to get the apartment back in order by Monday because there will be a broker open house on Tuesday.
On top of that, this Saturday I have a big family party that I am planning. Thank goodness I did most of the planning a month ago because I've neglected this item for the last few weeks. But today, I went to both Costco and BJ's Wholesale club (and they were insanely crowded) and the supermarket. I have to go back out on Friday because they ran out of ground beef. On Friday I also to prepare the food.
And, I have that trip coming up in August that I haven't thought about in weeks. I wanted to look into it tonight again, but I am too tired to think.
Oh, and my sister asked me to take a few days off so we can do something so that is right around the corner and I have no idea where we are going. That stresses me out a little because I am a planner.
What else...I've had BBQs, bookclub, doctor appointments, a little kayaking and other outings & events. The next few weeks and months will be busy too, but I think after next week, several things will be complete, and I'll be busy but not insanely busy and hopefully will have time to blog a little more.
