Life in the Fast Lane

When did I get so busy? I feel like it was just a year or two ago when I was looking for things to do to keep myself busy.  Now, I need things to slow down a little bit.  It seems like every night after work I am running all over creation and I'm exhausted!

Part of this is that my wedding is in 8 weeks...yes EIGHT. It feels like I still have 12 months to go, when in reality it's right around the corner.  I have to start tying all of the lose ends together and finishing some of the projects that are not yet done.

Weddings are tough. No matter how far ahead of the game you think you are, there is still SO much to do. You cross one item off of your list and realize there are 4 more things you need to add.  As I mentioned to my mom, I want to get everything done in the next 4-6 weeks so 2 weeks before my wedding I can kick up my feet and drink champagne!

I find I am struggling to balance everything I am supposed to; work, gym time, wedding planning, cooking, cleaning, and laundry.  Plus all of the other little things that come up on a day to day basis. It's tough. James does his best to help, but when he works 14 hours a day 5-6 days a week, I can't expect him to come home at 11pm and do anything but eat and go to bed. I feel like we're both running in circles and we have to make it a point to SLOW DOWN.

How do I make a plan and schedule time for me when I'm being pulled in a million different directions by everyone and everything around me?  This is something I need to figure out, and soon!
