Is anyone else blown away by the fact it is mid-April? I am. Especially since I’m still wearing winter jackets and accessories. WTF Mother Nature? As someone who lives in a city where summers always feel really short, this is not helping me in staying upbeat and positive.
I’m also exhausted–mentally, physically, emotionally…and in every other way possible, if there are other ways. I feel like I need a reset or refresh button for my life as the last few months have sort of done me in. Does anyone else ever wish they could just pause everything so you could just chill for a few days and recover/relax/just be? The urge to find this magical refresh/reset button is big for me right now as I have a crazy May and June ahead with five work trips and one personal trip ahead of me. Three of these trips will be in the month of June alone.
What do other bloggy folks do when they are run down? Any advice?
Until the wise people of the interwebs offer up some tips and tricks I will be left of my own devices. I’m currently counting down until my four day weekend begins at 4:30 pm today. There isn’t as much down time as I would like, but it has some fun parts with dear friends (see below), so I’m grateful for that. I mean, what better way to spend your time than with people you love, right? I think I might also sleep away most of Sunday. It’s my only commitment free day and I think that a napping on the couch while watching tv/movies day sounds great–oh and I have to sneak in a 9 mile run….but otherwise, it is all about the naps on Sunday….and Mad Men 🙂
Enough about me complaining about being tired–I know everyone is tired. lol. There are some things that are fun going on, too.
I get to bake and decorate cupcakes with my little friend B and her mom tomorrow. I’m really looking forward to it–and not simply because it is an opportunity to consume butter cream, candy decorations and cake with good company around me, but because I find baking simply makes me happy.
I’m also excited that so many lovely, fellow bloggers have secured their registrations for Dopey and Goofy in 2015! I will be cheering for you from Winnipeg while you guys run your way through 39.3-48.6 magical miles in Disney World and get your hands on 3-6 beautiful medals! I hope that I can join them in 2016 for a few magical miles myself. Wanna follow their journey? Here are links to their pages:

Take care and have a good one everyone!
