Looking for more hours in the dayPosted: December 13, 2011
The craziness of the holidaze has officially slammed into me today. I’ve been moving along, thinking I had everything scheduled and in order and this was going to be a piece of cake this year.
Instead I find myself running behind, pretty sure that I’m going to eventually pass myself somewhere along the way and wonder who that crazed woman is I just cruised by.
Things are not really out of control just yet. Otherwise I wouldn’t be sitting here working on today’s post. That might not be true. I might be sitting here procrastinating because that’s often my reaction when I start to feel overwhelmed.
We’re having an early Christmas celebration this year. The kids and grandkids will all be here this weekend. It will be fun. So here’s what I’m going to do…
I’m going to chill for a minute. Take a few deep breaths. Relax. Release the feeling of stress I am creating for myself. Just… let go.
There. That’s much better.
Now I’m ready to get on with the rest of my to-do list. I bet I’ll have most of it finished before Thursday. I usually do finish up ahead of time which is nice because it gives me time to sit back and relax. So why the stress and panic? Who knows. Habit, I suppose.
Thanks for dropping by the Bogs today. Sorry if it seems a little hectic. I’ll be back to normal soon. I hope your holiday preparations — if you’re in the midst of holiday preparations — are smooth and easy.
