I Plead Pink Tornado

Why is it that when I have 7 billion things on my plate, every single person I know requests a very important, time sensitive, in-person only meeting? 

I am feeling VERY overwhelmed, y'all!

Which sucks because I just finished a big project and should be feeling a huge sense of relief. 

Instead I am spinning with what to do next and instead not getting anything to a state of done.  I am making lists and breaking things down.  On Monday at a meeting, I was volunteered for extra things and I just couldn't muster the simple word, "No.".  I'm an idiot sometimes.  Way over-committed this month.  But when a zillion extra things pop up and I have a very short time line, it leaves me feeling a bit like I might drown.

The good news is that at the end, regardless of what gets finished, I am going on a vaca.  But if I don't get stuff done- the stuff I knew about and all the crap that is popping up- it is going to be bad news bears.

I have ten days to get many months of stuff done.  Want to take bets on how many break-downs I have between now and then?  I guarantee it will be more than two.

So if I am sparse on here in the next three weeks, this is why.  I'm busy and then I will be out of town.  For the next ten days, I will be a swirling pink tornado trying to get things checked off my list.

Aaaahhh...I detest this feeling.  Super duper overwhelmed.

Oprah talked about when she wants to say NO but doesn't want to seem rude she says 'That doesn't work for me'
I always make a point of practicing it before I go to meetings.
