Going, Going, Going

I feel like my brain is going into shut down mode in an attempt to survive the next month.

May is shaping up to be crazy busy. We have houseguests for 16 days out of 31. I will be traveling to New York for 9 days. Our 5 year wedding anniversary is this month (I will be in NY for the actual anniversary, wah!). I’m planning 3 of my biggest projects at work which happen on May 20th, 24th, & June 1st, respectively (2 of the 3 WHILE I’m traveling). The number of things that are overlapping on my calendar is kind of freaking me out. I’m…kind of feeling burned out, and it’s only May 3rd.

There’s a ton of great stuff happening this month, don’t get me wrong. I get to attend (at least parts of) BlogWorld Expo NY during my travels. I’m hoping to meet up with some blog friends while I’m in New York (hey, if you’re in the area/going to BWENY/BEA, let’s meet!).  There’s Mother’s Day, my anniversary, family, friends, blog fun, and of course, NY food.

But when you look at your calendar and all you see is blocks and blocks and blocks of obligations–fun or otherwise–it can be a little overwhelming. I feel myself going into shut down mode–the exact thing I don’t have time for. But then I think of all the things I need to do, all the things I need to have prepared, all the things I need to wrap up, and I realize I’ve got to just keep going, going, going.

So that’s what I’ll do. I’ll keep pushing through so that all the things we have scheduled this month will be awesome/fun/productive/worth my time. I’ll keep pushing through so that I get the absolute MOST out of everything on my schedule.

And then, come June, I’ll sleep.

Our 5th wedding anniversary is this month too! I don’t neither you nor I will sleep until sept. It’s going to be a busy summer!

I hate having a full calendar. It’s definitely the easiest way to stress me out! And all that company would probably drive me a little bananas. 16 out of 31 days. Yikes!

I’ll be at BWE! Let’s try to meet there!

The fact that it’s May has me wigging out a bit. I have SO MUCH work to do before the end of the school year. Plus, it’s our anniversary and mother’s day and all that jazz too.

Ugh. I hate that feeling of knowing you’re going to be incredibly busy for the next week or month. I usually have a little breakdown or two. But, you are hardcore. You’ll manage. 🙂

We need to arrange that meet-up!

Yes, May is INSANE. BEA, going to California straight from BEA for my brother’s high school graduation, and my wedding anniversary is this month, too. June, where you at?

So busy! I hope June gets you loads of well-deserved rest!
