Memo to the universe: Please slow down!

in It IS all about me, Rants and rambles

Is it just me, or has the pace of life sped up considerably over the last couple of days weeks? I’m feeling breathless everywhere I go for the sheer number of things I’m supposed to be doing, trying to do at the same time, or simply not getting around to doing at all. Usually, I feel this way about work while my home life is relatively sane, or vice versa — but life seems to be simply relentless lately. You? I’m trying to figure out if it’s the simple fact of having a life filled to bursting with three busy boys, the shift in routine from summer mode to back in school, or just the non-stop chaos that comes with having a toddling menace wandering around undoing everything I’ve done and then some each time I turn around.

I’m feeling a little lot overwhelmed by the stuff I’m not getting done these days. Despite running through the last week or so at about a hundred miles an hour with all cylinders firing, my “oops, never did get around to that” list seems to be outstripping my “phew, another thing checked off the list” list at an alarming pace.

Sometimes, the bloggy well is dry and I’ve got nothing to write about, so I’ll toss up a post begging your indulgence while I search for my navel muse. Right now, though, I’ve got tonnes of bits of things to write about… and it’s driving me crazy that I can’t get organized enough to get them out to you. One post needs pictures, another needs research, yet another needs a bit of serious contemplation and careful craft — and none of that seems to be happening these days!

All that to say, help! No wait, what I really mean is, there be good stuff ahead, I just have to figure out how to milk an extra couple of hours out of my schedule to get to it. And, I’m sorry for all the e-mails I’m not replying to right now, the blog posts I’m not reading and the comments I’m not leaving. I’m kind of falling down on the “social” end of my social networks these days.

This is just a phase, right?

I find september is always like that. I am overwhelmed which the sheer magnatude if stuff I have to get done (or GLUP) pay for.
October is just around the conner.

I have never understtod how you do it all . The amount you accomplish each day just exhausts me. You are one admiral lady!

You are not alone, I have been feeling the same way for the last three weeks, with no end in sight.

Oh yes, I know of the “busy” I think I caught it to. Hoping this long weekend will be my chance to slow down 🙂
