I'm so busy it's making my head spin!
Do you ever wonder when life is going to slow down a bit so you can catch your breath?

This month of May I've traveled three weekends out of four. I foolishly thought that once that traveling was done I'd get to relax a bit and feel less frazzled and discombobulated. Boy was I wrong!

I worked from 2:30-10:30 p.m. last night and today I'm turning around and working 6:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. again.

Here's what's on my plate the rest of this week:

1) Today- rush home after work, check out a daycare that we might be sending Snuggle Bug to for 4 months (if Oronzo gets an offer for a long term contract position that he interviewed for yesterday- more on that later).

2) This evening- straighten up the house, make dinner, and at 5:45 p.m. Oronzo and I will head off to our third MAPPs class while Snuggle Bug stays home with his new sitter. I did this week's homework at work just last night.

3) Tomorrow- I'll work from 6:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. again, go home and spend some time with Snuggle Bug and Oronzo before the three of us leave to attend a work-related function at 7 p.m.

4) Saturday- I'll get up at the crack of dawn to sort through items around our house and label them to be sold at the garage sale that I'm helping my neighbor Jack have. He's almost blind, you see, and can't do his own garage sale so I'm taking my items to his house and spending from 8 a.m.- 3 p.m. at his place helping him sell his stuff and hopefully some of mine. At 3 p.m. I leave to join some friends for a clay creative time (thank goodness for that) and then dinner at their house.

5) Sunday- We'll go to 9 a.m. mass, then out for breakfast, then home to put Snuggle Bug down for a nap, clean our house, and pack a picnic dinner. At 5 p.m. we'll head out to attend another outdoor pops concert with friends.

Whew! I'm exhausted just looking at that list. So, what's keeping you busy these days?

Sounds busy and fun. Have fun at the clay class...what will you be doing there? I am interested in taking a potters wheel class, it would be so much fun i think.

Well, the good thing is you get more done when you're busy so you must be very very productive right about now!

Aaack. Your list makes me tired.
Of course, I'm too tired to list what's keeping me busy -- it wears me out to even think about it. But I'll say this:
Moving. Preparing house for tenants. Professional deadline #2 missed. Still dealing with citizenship paperwork for dd, home one year . . .
It never stops!
Hope you can be in the moment and enjoy your weekend!

Girl, if I told you what was keeping me busy I'd take up all your comment space :) Maybe I'll blog about it when it's over, but let's just say I'm totally STRESSED! I shouldn't even be on the computer right now. I will be posting for FIF Friday though. Can't miss that....

Here's to hoping that you're able to stop and catch your breath some time this weekend. =) Relax... It'll do your body good.
