The Mermaid Journal via The Paper Source
Did I really say this weekend was going to be slow? Did I really?
Well I was wrong. I'm sitting here writing this post and I can't believe everything that happened. Ladies Night w/ In-Law gossip, Deadpool (yes, again), dinner for a friend's bday, watching Creed (excellent movie), almost finished Fuller House, had brunch w/ Craig and his mom, went to an Open House, caught up with my mom, made our Easter/Anniversary Plans, visit to grandma in the nursing home, supermarket shopping, AND The Walking Dead AND a mini trip to the Paper Source. Whew. I'm tired and this week is just getting started.
I can't remember when my life got so busy. I constantly feel like I don't have enough time for anything and I'm always trying to play catch-up or let out that deep breath I'm holding in. My calendar is full of back-to-back family events squeezed in by the hour with other family and friend events. I'm cracking under the pressure. Yup, I admit it.
Somehow a few years ago this became my new normal.
I literally just bounce from here to there with a power bar in my purse and a Red Bull chilled and ready. I must never grew out of A.D.H.D. because I must have it to keep up the pace.
But I'm losing track of things. I still can remember to take my birth control and put on a bra each day, but other things are slipping past me. I didn't pay my electric bill today. I'm going to pay it tomorrow, but this isn't like me. I don't forget to pay bills. It took us to the last minute to plan our trip. That's not like me either. I haven't had time to go to the gym because I'm playing catch-up with everything else. I forgot an RSVP to a bridal shower...but luckily they called me to confirm. =/
The difference in me is becoming too noticeable. I have do something.
Hopefully I found part of the solution. A New Notebook that will be solely for me and the infinite number of checklists I will need to shape myself back together. The mad rush of events started last week with the tiny baptism and really don't end until July. I have to start writing things down separately from my blog notebook. It's too life/blog/life/blog/life/madness...Here's hoping this will be a productive and good start! =)
I just love the quote on the front...I hope I was a mermaid in my first life.
That would have been so cool!
