So much going on lately

November 10th, 2008

You ever have times in your life when you step back and say: “Wow!! Hold On! There is just too much going on right now!” That is how I feel. Sure, our calendar is crazy, but it isn’t just that. My brain is just overwhelmed lately too. There is just too much activity, too much emotional stuff, too much financial stuff….just too much.

The good stuff is that I am going to be an Aunt, again. I am sooooo thrilled for my brother and his wife. They have a beautiful son that is approaching three years old. They are now expecting twins in early summer ’09. I couldn’t be happier for them.

On the other side, we are dealing with lots of family garbage. I won’t go into it…but it is just too much for me to deal with. My husband and I are trying to stay out of things as much as possible and let family settle what is going on. However, the holidays will be affected by what is going on. That is cause for stress. Especially since we are having Christmas at our house.

On the other side is dealing with a pre-pubescent son that doesn’t understand what is going on with the family. His grades have suffered over the last 2 months because of it. He went from A’s to C’s in two of his classes. Something that is NOT acceptable in our family. Adults can deal with family issues so much better then kids can. They can’t understand why adults make the decisions that they do. I can’t even understand it sometimes.

On top of all of this, I am worried about the economy, Christmas gifts, and running. Thank goodness my body is cooperating and allowing me to run so much. As of yesterday (11/09), I have run 61 miles in November. I am proud of that. My goal is to run over 190 this month. That is the most I have EVER run in a month. Man! That’s a lot of miles for me. I have a 19 miler *gulp* scheduled this Sunday. Sure hope my joints and body help me get through it. I will be so proud when I run into my driveway after running that far.

Too much going on. My brain is just tired. I have so much to do over the next month. I have a school room full of books, clothing, and misc. items that I need to sell. I need to make gifts or find them at mega-sale prices. I need to work on my body and get it ready for my 5 upcoming races between now and Feb. ’09. I need to get better sleep and eat to fuel my body. I need to stop stressing. So much going on lately…
