Visiting my BFF in Little Rock last weekend.

Holy moly y'all! It has been a whirlwind month. As I mentioned yesterday, a lot has been going on in my life! All good things of course, but between a new job and being out of town more than normal, I just can't quite get the hang of my new routine.

All of March, I felt like my life was literally in upheaval. I feel like I have quite literally no time to do anything.
My house is a mess.
My car needs to be washed.
My DVR is filled to the brim.
I haven't been grocery shopping since February.
I feel like I haven't seen my friends in weeks.
Clearly, blogging has gone by the wayside {as I write this, I'm running late for a meeting with friends!}.
My poor pen pal {looking at you Miss Pinky} has been waiting to hear from me for weeks!

And on top of all that, I can't remember the last time I've read completely through my Twitter feed, my Google Reader is bursting at the seems and my Kindle has been untouched for weeks. Silly things probably--but those are activities I enjoy doing and really, really miss.

Just all around craziness. But. This isn't me complaining. I feel so thankful for all that I have going on. I'm excited for new beginnings. Just feeling slightly overwhelmed. It's just a phase and I'm hoping everything will settle down by the end of next week and my life can go back to being normal and boring--just the way I like it. In the meantime...any tips for being on top of things? I've always prided myself on time management but I'm starting to wonder if my skills are lacking....


  1. Try to do a little bit each day instead of doing a huge "purge" of things you have to do. It helps keep things in check. Like cleaning for 15 minutes everyday when you get home from work! That way you don't have to spend a whole Saturday stressing over cleaning.

  2. Sweeet sweet pen pal I do miss you! Hope to catch up soon!!!

    I agree with the above comment, do a little bit each day.
