Crazy Busy

September 23rd, 2008 at 02:21 am

...I feel like I am drinking from a firehose lately. I am typing this at 2:15am...can't sleep, for some reason my brain won't stop planning and thinking and making to-do lists...

We just wrapped a week of (offsite)planning at my job. This year I pulled double duty...now that I am a participant, I have more prep and involvement in the planning session...

But I am still transitioning some of my old responsibilities out...so I also did the hotel and meal coordinations, reservations, preparations, purchasing, organzing, and took all the minutes and notes...

Needless to say, I was very tired at the end of the week. To top it off, NOW there is all the fun that piled up and waited while I was gone for a week. Ugh. It will be several days before I am back into some form of routine.

Lots of birthdays, a couple of weddings, a baby shower, babysitting, and doctor appts for my mom in between.

Then there was registering for school and purchasing the books.

In my free time, I am trying to knit a baby blanket. (call me crazy, I do)...so far I am about a month into it and only a third of the way done...but it is my forced relaxation.

You know its bad when I am too exhausted to go camping....which I was this past weekend.

I will be getting my first paycheck with the new salary this week. I am going to help my son and his wife with college expenses this semester...they have both recently decided to go back to school to better their careers...so there goes the extra money that I would have from the first couple of paychecks...but it is money well spent if it helps them get re-engaged in bettering themselves.

The hubs wood business has kicked into high gear with the anticipation of a very cold winter. He has a long list of clients who have ordered their firewood. There was ZERO advertising this year...all repeat customers and word of mouth...and he will be working hard all fall to get all of the orders filled.

Thankfully, I have the first two weekends of October planned that will allow some much needed downtime and rest. The first weekend is a girls only trip to the coast for 3 days with two good friends. (We will clebrate both of their birthdays while there) The second weekend is a getaway with the hub and another couple to a rented home at a local resort...(no kids or parents invited!!) Can't wait.

    Wow! I think I'm exhausted just reading about all you're doing. I hope things slow down a bit as others are able to pick up on your old duties.

    The nearer to my monthly cycle, the worse my insomnia gets. Good luck with catching up on sleep!
