Is it November yet?

I'm now remembering how crazy our fall schedules used to be. It wasn't just the soccer, plays rehearsals, dance, school events etc, etc, it was all of my clubs and volunteer activities hitting high gear. That was before the holiday crazies piled on top (but we won't go there today).

I've had a comfortably busy but relatively quiet life for most of the last year. I've now officially thrown myself in to way more activity than I really want and am starting to get that "I told you so" look from my husband. I have something scheduled every night and most of the days for the next 10 days. I knew intellectually with a new business, sitting on two boards and running for elected office it was going to get this way but the reality is always different and more exhausting.

I know I'm whining and cranky this week and I'm sure part of it has to do with worrying about my dad. I'm also feeling the time crunch of having been gone for 10 days. The world and my responsibilities just kept moving along and now I'm racing to catch up. I think this means all those holiday knitting projects I had planned are getting scaled way back.

Enough complaining for today. The world awaits and it is a glorious day outside.

I have a feeling that when I 'retire' I will, like you, fill my time up with activities. I don't know if I'll be as ambitious as you are (school boards and new business) but I can't see myself sitting still for very long. It's funny, we can't wait for the time when we get to retire and then we find lots to do! At least you like what you're doing.

You're just an incredibly creative person--you want to make the world into a better place! I do hope you get some peace about your dad--that's such a difficult place to be in!

And peace all around--even in the chaos:-)

It's the last leg of the marathon and you're juggling balls while running it. Of course you're getting run down. Take a deep breath and go knit something.

Hope Dad gets better soon.
