biting off more then I can chew

Next week is vacation, which is so anticipated at this point, but the week before is always a bit difficult. I feel like I'm running in circles trying to get everything done. We're actually doing 3 smaller trips during our 9 days off instead of one big trip (which will come at the end of August - Cape Cod!). Great for having lots of kinds of relaxation, not so great for ease of packing. Considering the kinds of activity each trip entails (a wedding, camping, family visit with boat rides!), the packing needs are so different, but with just enough overlap to make pre-planning difficult.

Yesterday I worked from home, which is always nice and offers a bit more ease then regular work days, but a combination of tiredness (an absolutely amazing thunderstorm rolled through, it was awesomely loud and bright, with the thickest sheets of rain - though less appreciated at 2am then it would have been at 10pm) and trying to do too many things with the little bit of extra time I had, made for a crazy, overwhelming day. I should know better, I always seem to try to accomplish too much on these days lately, and I always end up feeling overwhelmed, and disappointed in something that didn't get done. I think I need to start making a list of things I want to get accomplished, then pick only one or two to actually worry about doing.

On a nicer note, there have been a few awesome thunderstorms, and they have been accompanied by cooler weather. I'll take it.

In any case, we're all still here and all still well. More when I have breathing room, promise!
