Tuesday Tidbits

  • I'm feeling stressed, like I'm always trying to fit 20lbs of Sh*t into a 5lb bag. 

  • I was volunteered to be club sectretary for the ski club I joined last year by the President.  I'm behind in getting the minutes of the April meeting to him, plus the spot where they hold their meetings is already booked for the May date that the club chose for their next meeting.  Now I have to find a venue where we can hold the meeting.... do the minutes, address the action items, no biggie right?  argggghhhhh!

  • Taxes are due on Friday, I'm almost done getting all my information organised and if in fact if I had any organisational skills (i.e. sectreterial, see the above note), I'd file all my bills after paying them monthly instead of trying to file them four days before the tax due date.  Being on contract sometimes bites...

  • I have to start back running on a more committed basis, I have an 8K Kilt run at the end of June and truth be told I haven't put on  my kicks in well over a month.

  • I'm feeling a little more confident about the 100K cycle tour I'm riding at the beginning of June, riding down to Kingston shouldn't be a problem, however, cycling the 100K back on the Sunday could prove to be interesting!!

Lifes' fun if you don't weaken,

Lily

Sorry you are so stressed right now!!! I hope you have a good day and you are able to get everything done!

I love the picture you found for I am in the same bout. There is not enough time in the day and it is so difficult to prioritize. I guess I personally need to be more realistic what I can and can't fit in a day, week, month and start setting boundaries or recognizing that somethings I value will still need to be cut. If you come across any tips or tricks I am all ears.

Deep breath! When somebody "volunteers" you for something, that means you are at liberty to handle it however you like :-) You're welcome.

my new favourite stress reliever.... Van Gogh Vodka... coffee flavoured. One iced glass works wonders!

Secretarial duties in any volunteer org suck. I hate that job and won't do it. I'll do anything for any organization I am involved with except secretary and recording minutes. You only do that once before you figure out it's a pain! (-:

learn to say NO! I have. Finally.

NO running? No big deal You're on a bike for a bazillion kilos a week. That oughta cover things eh?

but then again, what do I know!

I may drive behind you as you wind your way to Kingston! (-:

HUGS

Such a cute little drawing. Hang in there. You'll get through it!

Marlene said...

Yikes on the volunteer gig... that you didn't actually volunteer for! If it's too much, you may have to graciously step down. Too much for one woman!

Hopefully things will level off once taxes are done!

Wendy said...

Better get ready for the kilt run, the world will be watching ; -)

Lisa said...

Stressed is desserts spelled backwards. I suggest that you indulge in some tasty treaat (pie, cake, or some such thing). :-)

You seem to be doing great with your cycling. Maybe focus on that and don't worry so much about the kilt race. :-)

Ewa said...

Somebody already suggested breathing and desserts (I like that one). I can only offer hugs.
Hope tomorrow will look brighter for you because I've been told it is all in how we see things. (So how come I always see them dark?)
Anyway, sending good, happy vibes your way.

One thing at a time...you'll get it done! BTW, the volunteer link was very cool...I'm getting very excited about my upcoming races.

Today may not be the best day to get back to running...Thursday though is back to sunshine...so get those kicks ready for action!

Wow, that's a lot of cycling :)
