I'm going to ramble a bit this morning, you don't mind, right? Anything is better than that pile of dishes I keep procrastinating, so I thought I would talk a bit about what's going on around here.
I'm crazybusy. Like overwhelmed in the brain kinda busy. I'm swimming along and there are just enough hours in the day, but my brain is all over the place trying to keep up! Yesterday, we took a little hiatus to the St. Louis Zoo with a group of Savannah's girlfriends. I was pleased to find out that they sell margaritas. Yep, I found a way to get in lots of walking, social time for my daughter, fun with my own BFF, AND booze...all by 10am. Don't hate me.
I don't talk a lot here about things other than running, but on top of training for a half marathon, I'm dealing with getting both my boys college admissions/financial stuff in order, homeschooling & the active social life of my thirteen year old, and running a business.
My business is booming, I've had 4 new clients I've met with just in the last week, which is great. I'm a petsitter, for those of you that did not know, and I adore my job. I have built it all by myself and it's not only given me the freedom to homeschool my kids, but gotten us through many a rough patch financially. It's also a 365 day a year job, and can get overwhelming. I'm out the door by 6am most mornings and in and out all day long. I'm on call and rarely have a day I can take off or get away, sometimes when I plan a day away I get a call the night before and have to cancel everything.
It's a good overwhelming though, most of the time, and I'm swimming along feeling pretty grateful for all the busy stuff in my life. I get bored when I don't have a busy schedule. Remind me of this after the weekend is over! I have so many petsits that I may not even have time for my weekly wrap-up. I know I won't have time for a run, and I definitely won't have time for the dishes. I guess I better go get them done now.
Do you thrive on busy or not?
