I have been feeling a little bit too busy lately…which is not a great sign since I am *trying* not to make too many plans and am trying to take care of me first and foremost but somehow, I forgot what was important and I made too many plans. Almost every night this week and next (opps!) I have plans and I am already thinking of bailing out of some of them because I just need free time!
I am lucky enough to be temping right now and though the job is very simple (and much too boring) and the day is long (8.5 hours of work + 2.5 hours of commuting each day), I am grateful for the money so I am sucking it up. That does mean, though, that I am awake by 6AM and not home until after 6PM which does not leave me much of an evening or much time to accomplish anything.
So, what do I do? Bail out of plans? Try and find time to do things (like clean my room, do my food prep)? Sleep less? I am still not quite sure.
What I do know is that last night two of my friends came over last night and I had fun just relaxing, eating good food, and catching up.
We ate some fabulous food! Brittany made some fantastic red-pepper hummus dip, I made the main meal, including Turkey Spinach Feta Bugers (one of the most delicious burgers I have ever had!) and Erica made Soft Serve Banana Ice Cream (which we ate, under blankets, because we did not want to leave the deck!).
The hours flew by and before I knew it, it was midnight and I had to kick them out because I had to be up in six hours! And yet, somehow, this morning I was able to unload and re-load the dishwasher because I even left for work. Yay for productivity!
Tonight, I am spending the evening hanging out with my very best friend as she has just returned home after living in Toronto for the Summer. I have not seen her since the start of May and I have missed her dearly.
Even though there is still laundry to be done, there is still paint that needs to be put on my bedroom wall, and a zillion other things that need to be done, I am feeling a whole lot better because time with friends is simply the b-e-s-t.
