The Next Couple of Weeks...

Are going to be a bit insane.

I'm really not kidding. I was looking at my schedule over the next couple of weeks, and it's going to get nuts before it gets better. Here's what I've got coming up:
  • Saturday Service Project this Saturday
  • Car Rally Saturday October 18th
  • Fall Retreat October 31-November 2
  • All the house stuff coming up... including a possible close on October 25
  • Elder/Staff Planning Retreat on October 25
  • School Stuff... including an autobiographical paper due October 28th and a test in one of my classes...
It's going to be a busy couple of weeks. In fact, at this point I'm just hoping and praying that I can make it through the next couple of weeks and make it to November 3rd.

But I find myself wondering, "Who did this to me?"

Then I look in the mirror and remind myself that "I did." My life and world and schedule can get so out of balance sometimes. And I really have no one else to blame other than myself. Sure, things are going to come up. Pressure is going to mount. But ultimately, I have most of the control.

Life about balance. And I allow it to get out of balance.

So for the next couple of weeks, I'll be hoping and praying for balance and that I can get everything done. And quietly resolving not to do this to myself again. (But I probably will.)

  1. Oy. Don't I know. I just want to knock this dissertation out so that I can clear that part of the slate. Oh, and get a job that pays enough that I can just work one job.
