Slowing Down

Well, folks. I've done it again. I've stretched myself wayyyy too thin and now it's time to slow down.
I have a nasty habit of taking on too much. Too much stress, too many tasks, too many responsibilities. And I have an even nastier habit of getting burned out fast or just plain overwhelmed.

Right now I have three major life events going on simultaneously.
School. Still have a month until finals and then, I get to start all over again - for the next 5 months.
Job-hunt. Because, you know, I need money.
Write/publish a book. Huge task. Not even at the tip of the iceberg yet. Will probably take me, like, 3 years to get anywhere.
Oh, and, the full time Mom thing.

So naturally I can't pay too much attention to anything else. That sucks. Dating, being social and anything else kind of falls by the wayside. It's the only way I can get anything done.

I plan on checking in here to update....if there is even anything to update on. Ha. I have a tendency to be pretty boring. I'm even cutting down heavily on my Facebook time in the hopes of lessening any distractions. But, I'm still here. I need to be because I have some wonderful friends and family members who worry about me...and Berlyn.

And I go a little stir-crazy when I am cut off from everyone for too long.

All my love!

I is funny how when we were younger, the world seemed to be this limitless field of opportunity that we had to wait to grow up to experience. Then, when we grew up we found we were bound not by physical limits, but by time. Life gets more and more precious with each moment that goes by, if only because we realize that our moments here are not infinite. You are doing great Sarah. Thanks for sharing.

Just catching up on your blog. You remind me a lot of me. Indecisive but passionate and openly honest. Keep on cousin! I love reading your thoughts.
