Surviving Crunch Time
Friday, June 27, 2014
It's busy here.
I'm a soap maker and I do festivals and markets as part of my business. The next three weekends are back-to-back shows and now it's crunch time. So I've been on my feet non-stop preparing. My foot is still swollen and not cooperating, so no running or walking for exercise.
In this midst of this crazy, I took time out today to take my dad north for a dr appointment. He was almost completely silent the whole day and twitched in his seat the whole car ride. So not him. He seems to be declining fast. :(
So I'm in survival mode. My five words and the 5% Challenge are after-thoughts to just getting through this weekend...and the next...and the next.
Though I must give myself credit that I have planned better than last year's festivals. I started earlier. I've given myself breaks. And I've been more realistic about what I can and can't do. I'm learning.
So for yesterday and today...
Exercise - no, thought lots of standing work
Home - no, delegating what I can right now
Family - doctor with dad, taking kids with me to festival
Business - yes, yes, yes...it's sucking up all my time right now.
Fun - took time out for date night with my husband
5% Challenge - drinking more water, ordering water when out...but I'm not tracking it or my fruits & veggies. My nose is to the grindstone and it's hard to to keep track of anything else but the work that needs done.
This too shall pass.
