Friday Links – Still Swamped Edition

Teenager with DepressionHi everyone. This week just like last week has been crazy for me.  Not only do I feel spun but I am also now starting to feel under the weather. I have not had my full reserves the last few days and it is getting me down. I don’t like the feeling of not being able to keep up and/or not having the energy to do the things I like, like working out. Apparently, they have chosen someone for my position but they won’t start until mid February which means I will be burning the candle at both ends for at least four more weeks. I am not quite sure how I am going to keep things up at work but I will find a way. I also have to spend all my Saturday this weekend interviewing for this Board I am on. I wouldn’t mind normally, but I really could use a weekend to catch my breath. There is always next weekend I guess. And then there is the blog. I am behind on commenting, posting, and responding to emails. Yikes. This is not normal for my usual productive self.

I don’t want to bring the rest of you down though. I hope you are doing ok and that your life is feeling a bit more balanced than mine these days.

I have tried to do some reading this week which I have highlighted below:

  1. Stay encouraged as you are burning the candle at both ends the next 4 weeks! I know it’s tough to be in the middle of the onslaught and to know you’ve got several more weeks to go. But now you have a date, and you can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

    Thanks for the repost! Are you an avid runner?

    • Good point. I am not down about the situation as much as I am down about my lack of ability to keep up. I don’t get tired you see. I am the energizer bunny and feeling like I am not is a big downer.

      I used to be an avid runner. I have run marathons and half marathons. Now I cross train but I am thinking of getting back into it. Are you a runner?

  2. Thanks so much for the mention Miss T! Sorry that you’re starting to feel under the weather. My wife just caught something this week and I have been fighting something back for the last week. I think the main culprit is lack of sleep from being busy. Try and get some rest, I know that is our main goal for this weekend.

  3. Miss T, I hope you feel better soon. Take some time, even 5 to be in the moment and RELAX. You sound like you need to at least get lots of sleep. Do try! Hope it calms down soon for you!

  4. I am sorry to hear that you feel like that (still). I am reading this wonderful book by Stu Mittleton – Slow Burn – at the moment. It is about ultra-marathon runners (a dream of mine) but some of what is in it applies to life: he says that whenever you think that the race will never end (despair)you should remind yourself that races always do (so do hard times). You task is to be in the moment and go through one minute, one hour, one day at the time.

    Thinking of you!

  5. Hang in there Miss T! Fortunately you can see the end of the tunnel, keep that goal in mind and plow through. Hopefully it will all be over before you knew it.

    If there is anything you need help with, give me a holler. I am just getting into the grove of this, I will be happy to help out.
