The busy spell

May is insanity. It's meetings, concerts, events, trainings, holidays, and other hoopla all squished into thirty one short days. I'm writing this while sitting in the car, waiting to drop my eldest off for concert warm-up. I just ate dinner in the car, and I completed my makeup with the help of the side mirror. This all feels pretty silly, but given the insanity of the month, it's been pretty typical.

Isn't it amazing what you can get used to? I stopped thinking was all unusual until I stopped about thought about it. I stopped thinking about things because I got to busy to deal with the absurdity of my situation.

Busy, I have realized in the last year, is a mask for almost anything. It covers up reality and makes it's think things that aren't necessarily true.  So now, I find myself waking up from the busy spell in an unfamiliar world. Hopefully, this summer, I can make way back to my world, including this blog.

Over-scheduled, again

Last year, I got tot this point of the year, and I promised myself that I wouldn't do this again. I told myself that I would not over-schedule the last two months of school. I tried, I really tried to avoid doing this, but the calender is not all up to me, and there are things I need to get to, even though I'd rather skip them.  So, I'm slogging my way through hoping that I don't collapse at the end of this week.

This week, I'm committed to a phone meeting, Advocacy Day, Multicultural Night (which I have to cook for after Advocacy Day), and a couple of low key meetings.  Next week, I've got more meetings, my husband's birthday, and some deadlines.  The following week is all prep for other things and two band concerts, and then my husband will be heading to Atlanta for training for most of the following week. Looking at my calender, I don't get another break until the third week of May, and then it's only that week that isn't packed to the gills. C'est la vie, right?

I hope you are having better luck keeping your schedule tamed, and hopefully, all of this craziness will inspire some interesting future posts.
