I am very excited for the next 9 days. It'll be filled with family, friends and fun activities. Add to those fun activities the anxiety of house guests, work, packing for a trip - all at the same time with the never ending availability of binge type food and you get the potential for disaster.
What do I need? A plan! Right about here is where I would type what that plan is . . . but I don't have one yet. Step 1 is knowing you need a plan LOL
Seriously. Gonna take a deep breath and one thing / day at a time. Here's the plan. I will be aware of my anxiety and anticipate when it will hit me. I am going to stop. focus on what really needs to happen and what doesn't. for example at this very moment guest #1 should be arriving and my table is covered in paper. I am not going to stress and I'm not going to shove it all into the closet - which would cause more anxiety since it's stuff I need to do this week! . . lol guest 1 arrived - more later
OMG this is going to be hard. Thankfully hubby took guest to the store. In the 30 minutes he was here my nerves are shot.
Revised plan - water....just gonna keep drinking water...
