Seems I’m operating in a severe “time poverty” mid set.
I am always running a touch late for stuff I want to do…getting up a bit later…not getting enough sleep, and feeling rushed.
I close on the house this coming tuesday so I am sure that is part of it. As soon as I close I know there are a few things that will need to be purchased (My 12 yr old TV is often losing sound, so it is finally time for a flat screen, I figured when I moved would be the perfect time…). In addition there is the MOVING STRESS.
I just find myself feeling like all I do is go to the gym, go to work, go back to the gym, and then rush around like a crazy woman at home.
Over the weekend I did do some preparation work for the week and this week was somewhat easier. So hopefully it will continue to even itself out. So far I’m finding that having all 5 outfits planned for the week ahead really helps. Restocking the gym bag on Sunday and making sure to empty it by Wednesday helps. if I do not empty it, I end up with a huge heavy bag with about 3 pairs of shoes… Pre-planning meals obviously helps. Also just picking one to two pressing things to handle each day has allowed me to chip away at an ever growing list of bills, mail forwarding, responsibilities etc.
Even with all this, I just feel entirely like I’m missing things, and that things that are out of the ordinary events really throw me off. I mean little things, this week we had a baby shower and I was supplying the cake. Just making the time to walk into the store and select a cake and frosting totally made my day feel again rushed and off. This should be easy!
Hopefully after I get moved and settled some time in June, this will all kind of dissipate a bit. But if not, I am just not sure how to get my time back.
Anyone else feel this way? What are your strategies?
