You ever have one of those days where it feels like EVERYTHING just happens in ONE DAY…in ONE moment? Well, can I tell you about my Tuesday please? And how my Tuesday had me in bed Monday night in bed with a wet towel over my neck/chest/shoulders?
The first thing to make Tuesday crazy? I have a board meeting on the schedule. An important one where the majority of the meeting will focus on my part in the organization.
Then? Soccer. Soccer starts this week and the first practice for both kids is at the SAME time, at the SAME park on Tuesday – but at completely opposite ends of that park. Like – there’s 3 baseball fields and a field house between the two fields.
Oh! But wait! It’s also the Beginning of School Open House; that night where you get to officially meet all the teachers and maybe buy stuff from the book fair! ALL AT THE SAME TIME AS SOCCER and the Board Meeting! Woot!
And there’s more! Donnie’s “deadline” so to speak that has had him working 60 hour weeks and sometimes 14-hour days…do you know when that is? Tuesday! So there’s a big meeting and then dinner that will hame him out until 8pm.
Board Meeting, Soccer Practice, Open House, Office Event. All around 6-8pm on Tuesday night.
Yesterday I got a request for a showing of our house at 5pm-6pm. So I need to have my dog WITH me and out of my CLEAN house by 5pm and I won’t be “able” to return until 6pm. Maybe earlier, but it doesn’t matter because I will be en route to one of my other million things and won’t be able to get her back to the house.
TUESDAY. TODAY. THE DAY IT IS NOW THAT I MIGHT BE LOSING MY MIND.
And I don’t know if it’s good or bad that I had planned on a no-Run day today. I wouldn’t have time to do it, but maybe I’m probably going to wish I did.
SO! In case you’re wondering we are skipping the soccer and school stuff (Kid’s stuff gets kicked to the curb, yo!) and I’m taking them to the important board meeting with me (Professional!) and I think I’m going to have to board my dog because I can’t really take HER to the meeting too as there are some lines I won’t cross and bringing my dog into a restaurant is one of them. See? I am professional!
With all of this on my plate you can bet that sleeping last night was a chore. I had a late meeting that had my brain whirring with the To Do list from Hell and then the chaos from today and I started itching slightly and then more and then I went to the bathroom and YEP! JUST AS I SUSPECTED!
My entire neck and shoulder region was covered in hives which is one of my more extreme responses to anxiety. The first time it happened was the day I met Donnie’s parents and it only happens in VERY extreme situations and last night? EXTREME. So I got a wet towel and draped it around my neck and chest and just did my best to sleep. The wet towel helped calmed the hives but my mind was just going INSANE.
So now I’m heading into today on minimal sleep which should make it all go really smoothly.
But seriously? This will hopefully be a good day. I’m hoping a few of these things will help end some of the chaos in our lives lately so the end result will be good, if we can just make it through today. ONE DAY. RIGHT? I CAN SURVIVE ONE INSANE DAY.
