Don't get me wrong - I'm not naive enough to not realize that this is a BUSY time of year, but man, I am SWAMPED!
I hopped on here to let you all know that I'll be mostly M.I.A. until mid-week next week... and then realized that by doing so I'm only procrastinating reading ANOTHER Performance Management case study this afternoon... : )
I am completely overwhelmed by the amount of school work that needs to get completed in the next six days. I haven't had a semester like this since undergrad and the panicked and rushed feelings of end-of-semester-finals-week madness are all creeping back!
Only problem is -- back then I could stay up most of the night and still make it through most of the week -- and I only had a dorm room or apartment to worry about keeping up -- and no husbands or pets to be concerned with caring for (for those of you know me well and have done since undergrad - insert bad jokes about failed all my college boyfriends and "relationship" drama here!) These days - if I don't get a good 7-8 hours of sleep I am TOAST! (reason number 489 why I don't have kids yet...!)
So... I'm plowing through it all - with my computer streaming the Christmas music radio station to keep my spirits up. Visions of sugar plums dancing in my head and all that...
I can do this... I can do this... I can do this...
See you on the flip side, folks! : )
