So yesterday I discovered that someone had rifled through my car. Nothing damaged, nothing taken (that I can determine). Hell, they even left the pennies in the cup holder LOL For some reason they tried to pop the hood. Yes, I checked for any damage there.
I feel so violated! and it feeds my paranoia. Yippee.
Then I get to work to be told that I’ll be working 6 day weeks for the next 5 weeks due to various “Friends & Family” and “Gift With Purchase” promotions going on. I know I’ll be thrilled when I see my paychecks but I’ve worked for salary for long it doesn’t register yet. All I’m seeing is the loss of time off to prep for PreHeat.
To quell my rising panic and anxiety I’m drafting up a schedule for the next few weeks. Somehow organizing my time makes me feel more in control. And control is good 🙂
Three hours of cleaning/purging: I’ve got a bunch of clothing for friends set aside, plus I’ve thrown out quite a bit of unusable stuff. Work will focus on two rooms to start. Three hours will be enough to make a small dent but not overwhelm me.
Two hours of creative pursuits: Draw, color, goof around with a collage, fiddle with some beads. Just doing something to get my muse engaged.
One hour focused on blog: either finishing up the dozen posts I’ve not published, writing new ones, or learning/researching aspects of social media.
The next 6 weeks are going to be interesting/insane/busy/monotonous/exciting/challenging. So to try to keep myself from pulling my hair out and binge eating I’m going to try out a schedule. I’m also trying to prep as much as possible. For example, today I cooked carnitas and have chicken breasts marinating. I made a BJ’s run for bacon, BabyBell cheese, frozen broccoli and spinach, ground beef and chicken thighs. I think it’s the exercising that I’m going to have issues with. It’s just a self-discipline issue. I gotta get up before work and do something.
