Stretching yourself toooooooo.... thin

Do you ever feel like you have a million things to do, and you try to accomplish every -single- one of them?

Well, of course you do! I know I am not the only insane person out there who bites off more then they can chew.

Ever since Chris has been gone, I have been trying to keep myself occupied by going places and doing things, but these past few weeks it seems that I have been stretching myself waaaaayyyy... too thin.

Take for instance the last two weeks... my sister who mostly works at night, needed a babysitter from 4:30 until 10:30 since my Mom was on vacation in Colorado. So like any good sister... I had duties to fulfill. Which then brings us to the weekend... I had made plans earlier in the week to go to the beach with my girlfriend Vanessa, as well as doing an early morning workout on Saturday with my girlfriend Courtney. My sister informs me on Friday that she needs my help with my nephews birthday party.. with all his little friends.

So here was my weekend..

Friday: Babysit my niece and nephew

Go to Party City to pick up all the goodies for my Nephews Transformer party... with both niece and nephew in tow... deal with a few break downs.. because they see something they "HAVE" to have.

Pick up Chick fil a for dinner.. go back to their house.... Nephew says he doesn't feel well.. 5 minutes later he is in the bathroom yacking (bless his heart, he always makes it to the toilet... and he cleans his own mess up... there was some going down the side of the toilet.. and he was cleaning it all up.)

He goes back to lay down.... 5 minutes later he is yacking again...

Finally get both of them to bed.

Saturday morning:

Wake up at 7:30 (really who does this on a Saturday?) met my girlfriend at a local park in the 100 degree + 80% humidity... only walk 3 miles.. instead of 5.

Go pick up balloons that were ordered.... silly string... mosquito spray... fruits... veggies... and lunch.

Return to the house.. to get all the fruit and veggies cut up.. ice the cupcakes.. and hang streamers.

Wait for the party to start.. and only have 2 out of 7 kids show up!!!!!!

Help my sister clean up, put my nieces new day bed together... order pizza and go to my girlfriend Courtney's house for pizza, beer and movies.

Sunday: babysit... from 11:00 - 4:30 in the stifling heat for a handicap child... who I can't really do anything with when it's so hot out.. and lugging her in and out of the car along with her wheel chair def. wasn't happening that day.

So I never got around to going to the beach with my girlfriend Vanessa.

Which leads us to Tuesday night. My girlfriend Cat has been asking me to go to the gym with her.. so I told her I would go on Wednesday night.

Wednesday after work my girlfriend Vanessa text me and tells me she and one of her friends are going to 501 Grill @ 8:00 for some drinks and asked if I wanted to come... so trying to please everyone... I of course say yes, that I would meet them down there. I get there about 8:30.. let them know that I can only stay for about an hour.

I leave them at 9:30 rush home to go change into gym clothes and meet Cat at the gym at 10.

I just feel like I am constantly on the go go go.... I took this Sunday off from babysitting so I could just have a relaxing weekend to myself.... which doesn't look like that's going to happen now. I hate letting people down... but seriously it's starting to weigh me down!

I have been so busy that... I haven't even unpacked from my trip to Canada! Seriously... who leaves their crap in a suitcase for a month?

On another note... it's fricken Thursday.... let the weekend begin!
