What is Manic Times 2 Plus Soreness?

My Monday.

Next week we seem to have a training going on at the office. People from various branches coming in to learn things.
I am feeling a bit overwhelmed today, as my to-do list seems to keep getting longer faster than I can cross anything off.
And I want a soft pretzel and bbq.

OK. Apparently I thought that it was okay to be all cranky - Sorry about that.

I'm going to make a few claims here, so that I am better kept accountable:

-I will blog. everyday this week. (i already have a list started of topics I want to cover. a few things I've promised more info on, product reviews, giveaways, and of course my Boston Trip and Race Re-cap from this week, just to name a few.) This is not a "to do" as much as a "get to do" as I love blogging and this fabulous blogging community we are all apart of in one form or another.

-I will get some sort of activity/exercise in my life every day. Because I am quite sure it is the only thing that will keep me sane when work picks up.

-I will not purchase any BBQ Kettle Chips. (this is a promise i made to myself while eating lunch with Laura, yesterday- as I am quite certain i could eat a full bag of them every day for the rest of my life, and that is just not healthy.

-I will continue to tell myself I am going to completely unpack from this weekend, and if it does not get done, I will not get upset ;)

OK. SADLY- thats all the time I have for the blogging for now.
but i didn't want to leave you with out a little teaser of whats to come here on the blog. Let's just say, I miss these two so very much already:

Creating a list always helps me regroup and stay focused. [i may have 4 lists on my desk RIGHT NOW]- What do you do to help you on super busy or stressful days?


  1. Yep, I'm a list lover. I love making lists and they do help A LOT!

  2. I am big on to-do lists when I'm busy. I feel so much better when I can cross things off as I finish them!

    And lately, yoga has been great when I'm stressed. I can clear my head and get in a workout!

  3. gah I love bbq kettle chips too. And honey mustard! I have to stop as well.

  4. To-do-lists and being organized helps me. Also eating a good healthy meal to give me plenty of energy to get through the loooong day! :)

  5. As you know, I also love to make lists. But sometimes I also have to have some kind of reward for getting work done. New pens always make me more likely to actually tackle my grading to do lists :)

    Glad you had fun with the girls over the weekend!
