Packing and Preparing

I'm a bit overwhelmed today. We are on the brink of beginning the TNP camp for this year. I have one of the counselors from out of town staying at my house this weekend. I still need to pack and prepare for the week ahead. Tomorrow we will train all our staff and then go and watch Camp Out on Logo (did I mention that you could as well? Yes, OK then...). Campers arrive on Sunday.

OK.

Stop.

Breathe.

I certainly have plenty of stuff to do, but I want to make today as calm as possible. I'm starting out by journaling my feelings (otherwise known as blogging). I'm spending some good time with my Other Half, as well as with the guest in our house. I can pack later on today. For now. Let's try to be as calm as possible.

I like to write and complain about stress a lot, but really, I enjoy it. I think it feeds me somehow. It gives me purpose. I am actually DOING something. I should learn to make stress my friend.

OK - pack first or shower first?

Making stress one's friend...now there is a challenge. Good luck with that one.

Pause when agitated.

Or, if a pet is nearby, paws when agitated.
