Blah blah blah!

I need some Sparkpeople Sparkle!

It seems that each day, by the time work is over, I'm drained and I'm heading straight for the couch and not accomplishing anything in the evenings. I know I'm stressed, I can feel it every morning as the weight of my day hangs over me.

Here are my stressors, maybe laying it all out will help:

-I'm busy and behind at work and I need to prepare my co-worker for some of the things that will happen in September while I'm gone.

-I made a commitment to the local photography club to print up a bunch of mailing labels on the computer and although I've done more than 1/2 of them, my deadline is quickly approaching and I know it's time that I don't really want to spend this way - more stress!

-I've been spending the last several weekends helping out with renovations at the cottage which pretty much means that I can never get caught up at home because we're not there on Saturday or Sunday so the lawns need doing, the floors need mopping, the vacuum needs to see the light of day and I need groceries! I also feel guilty that we'll be gone for 4 weeks and won't be able to help at the cottage - plus I'll miss seeing the progress!

-I'm starting to get nervous about our trip which is also stressful although at least I've started filling up my lists of things to do and things to pack so maybe that will ease some of the stuff that keeps running through my head.

-I feel frustrated, irritable and whiny!

    Relax, set some priorities, and figure out what you REALLY need to do. The cottage will wait for you, and nobody will resent your not being there to help out for a little while! It's not like you haven't been pulling your weight so far. I'd forgotten about your trip coming up... eeeeeeeeeeeek how exciting!!! We need to discuss this in detail again soon, so I can have something to daydream about when my brain fries at work. I'm all for getting back on track. Let's do it! Get those sunglasses on because the Sparkle's going to be blinding!

    I don't really know you (saw you on the community page) but you are singing my same song! Seems I am very tired now, but I am trying to be more productive, sleep a good night's sleep, and take the time off when I can. Some things can wait.

    Sounds like you need a Calgon take me away kind of moment!!! Why don't you go back to work one of these last nights that Jim is teaching and get a few things off your desk. I could always help with the mailing labels if you bring them over and set up the computer. The trip stress will probably be there until you actually get on the plane and take off. I agree though that everything you can cross off your list will ease it a little. Don't go to the cottage this weekend. Rob could always go for the day Sunday or go out Saturday night. It's something to think about!!
