I have committed to a lot recently.
Training for a 1/2 marathon, April 9th.
Art show April 30th, my first in a very long time.
Work of many varieties, child care and home restoration.
Class room volunteer, at least once a week.
Drama Club assistant/organizer on Mondays
(although I have had a heck of a time getting it going this semester.. and not sure it will actually happen until next year.)
Mom,cleaner,cook,driver,gardener, home fixer, counselor,redirector,negotiation facilitator,worrier,etc.
Having goals helps me to focus and be more productive.
It makes me inspired and determined and energized.
It can also make me feel worn out and worried about being good enough to do it all.
So with a deep breath, I ran 6 miles this morning (burr...)
cleaned, grocered,laundered,cooked and
threw a some Unomi's (tea bowls or wine cups)
I feel satisfied but uncertain I can keep up this pace.
Wednesday's and Thursday's I have the privilege of hanging out with my buddy, the
almost walking, Axel.
Friday I am working with my friend Mary and need to get a long run in.
This is where I need to get organized and use my time management skills. I think I may need to borrow someones organization and time management skills. Are they for sale?
Mostly I feel excited about all these challenges and goals and responsibilities but sometimes I just want to hide under
the covers and take a nice, warm, nap.
Warm being the operative word here. Warm.
