I'm busy. You don't believe me? Let's look at my book.
Yes, I have a book. An old-skool spiral notebook planner with a pen in the spine. Yes, I have a cell phone with a PDA but it's so much faster to write it down than input it into my phone. The only advantage to using my phone is I can set an alarm. Which will usually beep for 15 minutes in my purse while I say "what is that noise?" Dear god, I'm old.
(FYI - in the background is the picture of me and BFF Heather in Florida - ah, good times. I have a picture of her and pictures of my girls on my desk, but not my dearly beloved. Hmmm, better get on that.)
So, back to the book. I was busy before this wedding business started but now it's just mushroomed out of control. Let me just give you an example of say, the next week:
Tonight - pedicure at 5, then home to clean house and get ready for NASCAR race
Saturday - Head to the NASCAR race at 9:30am, watch the race, go home, change, go to the Cards game at 6.
Sunday - finish painting my deck, meet with a photographer
Monday - lunch with a friend, have a BBQ for Craig's grandma's birthday
Tuesday - get my windshield fixed, go look at a wedding dress
Wednesday - Maddy's soccer practice, do laundry
Thursday - doctor's appointment and then girls' night out. Pack Maddy for a weekend at BFF Lynn's while I go run off to play golf.
Friday - possible InterPlay business, then drive to the Lake
Saturday - golf and beer with my dad
Sunday - come home, maybe stop in Owensville to meet a friend from high school, sit down for 10 minutes before going to bed
Ree-gol-darn-diculous, as my dad would say.
Last night I stayed home for the first time all week. I cooked dinner, did laundry, highlighted my hair, cleaned out my bathroom drain, cleaned my bathroom, read my book (Twilight Series), cleaned up my room, and gave Maddy a bath. It was the most relaxing night I'd had all week, because I was HOME. I also felt like I'd accomplished something.
I bring it on myself, I'm not complaining. I just find it ironic that I only put Maddy in soccer this fall so we wouldn't be so busy. Yeah, that plan worked.
Looking ahead to October it seems a little less hectic. However, once I run out of squares in September, October is free game.
