So I'm slowly feeling a bit more relaxed, not so stressed, and more back to normal. I don't know what it was about the last couple of weeks, but just a million little things all making me feel the pressure at once... ugh. Overwhelmed, with my mind trying to go several directions all at once. It seems like since way back around Spring Break that things have just not slowed down. I'm glad I'm at least breathing a little deeper now.

Funny thing is though, it's not like things are slowing down for me. We have an absolutely chocked full week going on here with Ryan or both of us being gone pretty much every evening; Tuesday, Thursday and Friday daytimes are filled to the brim; with a few added bonus out of the norm things I have to have ready all mixed in there; and to top it all off, I'm trying to get myself organized for our neighborhood subdivision garage sale this weekend. I don't know if I can pull that one off, as I have like 8 boxes of stuff to go through flagged for a sale, but also boxes that have yet to be sifted through still unpacked from our move. I just don't know if I'm organized enough to get it all done by Friday afternoon. I should have done it weeks ago, before all the birthday stuff, before my family was here, before taking off to Chicago, before the very last minute.
Time management is not always my best skill and I will certainly be tested on that this week!

And how does it already seem like it's almost the weekend? It can't possibly be only Tuesday still, as it feels we've already been through like 7 days this week.
At least I spent a little bit of time today (while waiting for Sawyer to not nap) playing some much needed catch up on replying to emails and comments and getting caught up on some other computer stuff. Still bogged down with unanswered emails, and weeks worth of pictures (I'm frightened by how many files I have to go through), but at least I put a dent in it.
Anyway, I did want to say a quick extra thanks to any of you who have taken the time to faithfully throw a comment, critique, compliment, or conversation my way lately... while I'm sure it seems I've done nothing but faithfully ignore them. I love each and every comment and leave them sitting in my inbox forever, meaning to reply to every one of them. And I'm trying to be better about actually doing it in a timely manner!

I too am overwhelmed with my task list! I would love a margarita...but that is probably not the best idea since I am growing this human and all. A nice stroll outside in this beautiful weather was even better, so I am feeling more relaxed now. I just spent some time telling God about all of the things I am thankful for and soaked in the beautiful sunshine and content children. Good moment!
