Gah! So Busy!

Things have once again gotten so busy that I have reached that stressed out, scatter-brained mode where I feel like a million things are coming at me at once. So blogging has taken a backseat. But I think I see the light at the end of the tunnel so that's a relief. I have something to look forward to now.

Let's see...what has been keeping me so busy. It doesn't seem like much but what there is, has been time consuming. Work has gotten ever busier. Since my last blog post about the Humboldt wildfire, the guys came back in one piece to only have us send different guys to the Watsonville Fire and then back up to Humboldt. As we are short staffed already because of us helping out other districts, our own city experienced three structure fires. As I said before, this will be a bad fire season. As I stepped out of my apartment building this morning, I smelled smoke. The smoky air was not because of a fire anywhere near me, it was just because of all the wildfires in Northern California. The wind is bringing the smoky air this way with it's charred wood scent. With all these deployments and structure fires comes more paperwork and personnel tracking which falls on my desk. So my already paper-ridden desk is becoming a crazy messy mountain of paperwork. I knew I should have organized my desk earlier! Bar Method is also keeping me busy since I am trying to get maximum results and am going to classes 3-4 times a week. My one month "trial" offer is over this coming Sunday and I am debating whether I will sign up for a normal membership or try other exercise options as Bar Method is very, very pricey and I should be putting any extra money into paying down debt and/or saving some money...not an exercise program. But I'm apt to completely change my mind despite how logical things seem to be.

Besides work and exercise, I've been housesitting and working on exchange projects or gifts which is why there have been no stitchy project progress pics. Any spare minute I've had lately has gone exclusively into exchange and gift projects. But I will probably be mailing out my exchanges tomorrow or the next day and they shouldn't take too long to be received. Once received...I can show pictures. I can't wait since I am all proud of my projects! I have one more birthday gift project to start and then it's back to regular programming for a while...Valerie's personal project stitching. I am so looking forward to some selfish stitching for a while as I haven't touched my stocking or Fairy Moon in months now. Months!

And dating...yea...I'm slowly taking baby steps back so I reclaim my sanity and ease the feeling of "insanely busy".
