Treading Water

I meant to take a half-day at work today.  Cool the jets a bit.  Take a load off.  Put my feet up at home.  Reeeelax.  Schedule some much-needed wedding planning (website and honeymoon!), fix our broken internet connection, and handle some washer-related issues. Well, it's 5 p.m., I've been here since 8:30 a.m. and I'm not leaving yet.  And those chores haven't finished themselves.


And of course, I put off my workouts this morning because I needed the sleep, which I didn't come close to getting anyway. And of course, I thought foolishly that I could leave work at a decent hour and fit everything in tonight.  No dice.

Oh yeah, and I've got a magazine column I need to start working on!

Right now, I feel like my life balance is tipping away from me for the first time in a long time.  I need to tip things back in my favor and I hope to do that by mid-week.

Breathe, Ryan.  Breathe.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better.  Right now, it's all about catch up.  And treading water.  The worst part is I know a good workout would set me straight and wake me up.

I simply don't have the time.

99 days and counting.
