It's been a really really really nutty few weeks for too many reasons and I am completely behind on tons of things for work as well as at home (say, getting my cousin his bday present a week after I was supposed to send it:)
This morning I'd scheduled a coffee date with a really great friend. When I got up and looked at my to-do list, my first inclination was to cancel. I started typing an email to her when I realized I'd cancelled the last time because I was buried with work.
I deleted the email and went to meet her a bit later. It was so great to spend a bit of time outside the office, with someone I love to hang out with. And yes, the to-do list was still very much there when I got back, but I had more energy to plow through it. And sure, I am up late working now, later than usual, but it was worth it.
As a working mom I am ALWAYS behind, ALWAYS buried, ALWAYS not finding enough time for anything -- and I think the one thing I let slide too much is time with friends. In person, not on facebook:)
So here's a reminder to all of you guys -- take an hour and go meet a friend for coffee!
