Scheduling is an art

OK, so this feels like a pretty stupid thing to complain about but here it goes...I'm over scheduled and it's stressing me out!!

I really don't know how I got to this point except to think that I got a little carried away with the excitement of all the opportunities that were being given to me. Would you like to go to the opera? Why, yes. How about snowboarding? Love to. Yoga? Catering? An overnight trip to the desert? The photo club meeting and outing? Yes, yes, yes and yes.

Somehow when saying yes to everything I didn't look at a schedule. Needless to say, everything is scheduled over a 5 day period before I head out on a weeks vacation. That in and of itself is overwhelming because as any mother knows you're not only packing for yourself but for your entire family. Throw in Fabrizio's new list of allergies and our lack of snow clothes and I've got a weeks worth of work just to get ready.

I can't breath. Is it possible to have a panic attack while writing about stress?

I guess it's a good problem to have. After all, I did put it out there that I wanted to do more. I guess I just didn't expect it to come all at once. I am very unprepared and now I'm stuck with what to do...go along with it all or start selectively canceling? The old me wants to cancel. At this point I don't want to do anything but I know that saying no to everything isn't in the theme of the life I'm creating. There is no reason why I can't do it all...except I don't want to. Time to buck up. Take it one day at a time. If I do that it's not too much. I just can't think past tomorrow or I might have a panic attack.

Hmmm, maybe try it all once and then decide which are worth your time and energy. It's good that you have so many opportunities!

I'll have to let you borrow the back massager I just bought. I don't understand why I didn't own one until now! It makes stress melt away!
