There so goes…there she goes again…


I wish I had nothing to do this weekend. Seriously the last 3 months have been the busiest time of my life & it’s not even the holidays. I have never had a boyfriend who wants to bring me with him places to be I guess what you call his “Plus 1” but if you combine what I have to do & him it’s getting a lil ridiculous. Earlier this week I remarked that I wanted to take it easy & try to do a lil less & get some time for myself this week. Yeahhh it didn’t happen. This weekend isn’t going to be any slower. Here’s what I have in store.

Friday Night: Helping CJ babysit his friend’s dog all night

Saturday Morning: William’s Sonoma demo on making butter & ricotta (Really looking forward to this tho!)

Saturday Night: CJ’s cousin’s birthday party at a restaurant

Sunday: My grandfather’s 88th birthday in Connecticut

Monday Night: CJ’s best friend with 4 kids invited us over to dinner at her house.

I’m overwhelmed. Granted I haven’t been in a relationship for a while but this is a lot of stuff. Every weekend I’m served a full plate like this as well as a full plate of restaurant or barbecue or very fattening food. I’m exercising & trying so hard to cut down my food intake during the day so when I do eat out it’s not as harmful to my waist but nothing seems to be working. I’m going to try to squeeze in going back to the gym today but I don’t know how successful this is going to be. I’m stressed. I need to really work on finding a balance after this cluster of busy passes.

Maybe I can do it all and not lose more of my mind? Maybe…

Here's a concept hunny ... say no. Even if it's just to one or two things. I know you'd do it graciously. Just explain that things have been insane and you need a day or two off. Life doesn't get any easier or less busy. You have to make that decision.
It's important that you take time for you. You'll be a better person because of it.

I am pretty much in the same boat! As far as trying to cut down during the day, why don't you try eating a big, but healthy breakfast. Like cereal with berries, a yogurt, and another fruit. That way you'll feel full for most of the day & wait until dinner to eat. :)

I agree, that is too much for you right now. Start saying the words "No" or "I really want to relax, so Not tonight or ___ night." If you don't grab hold of your voice in the relationship now, he'll just continue to do this for the duration of it.

That WS demo sounds SO fun!

You've heard that old saying, be careful what you wish for! Life is busy enough when you're single, add a +1 in the mix and...well you get the idea. I agree with the others though, please just pace yourself honey. No sense getting too stressed, you guys should be enjoying yourselves.
