I think I am suffering from Summeritis.
All I want to do is be near the water with a good book, some shade and time. Precious, glorious time. With work deadlines looming, my days are sucked into reports and spreadsheets while on the homefront, I’ve got three tenants vacating and five new tenants moving in. To say I’m busy would be an understatement. Plus, it’s going to be in the 80’s today so I might actually melt while at Zoo Tunes watching Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin(!), Shawn Colvin and Buddy Miller rock the stage tonight.
I’m grateful I have tomorrow off so that I can get work done from my other jobs. Yes, jobs. It’s BlogHer time and I am in the crunch of scheduling all the volunteers. (I’m the Volunteer Coordinator, dontcha know?) Oh and did I mention I am planning a bachelorette party and a birthday party? (Not a complaint because they are for very special people and, you know me, I love to throw a party.) With my dance and water exercise classes thrown in, I barely have any free time and when I do, it’s spent catching up on mundane tasks like doing the dishes. My schedule has been so packed the last two days that I have not had time for dinner. A cheese stick or a handful of nuts does not a complete meal make. If it had included booze, maybe.
I plan to whip through my to do list tomorrow so that Saturday and Sunday are all about fun in the sun, good company and relaxing. Yes, I said it. RELAXING. I’m going to try. Try to turn off the computer, the tv, my brain and just enjoy.
Hope you have a sparkly 4th. Eat a patriotic cupcake for me, will ya?
