Even though I SAID I was going to be spending my last week of summer in a state of relaxed appreciation, that has not happened. It's been a hectic week over here but I'm kind of loving it. After a month and a half of absolutely nothing, it's nice to have Important Things To Do.
With classes beginning in less than a week and school beginning two weeks after, I've been scrambling to get things in order so I'll have all my routines down by the time everything gets crazy. Booking appointments, organizing shelves and desks and binders, running out for last minute supplies, getting myself on a decent sleep schedule, re-connecting with friends, classmates, and colleagues... It's overwhelming! Shannon at The Simply Luxurious Life wrote a great post about it today; good to know I'm not the only one in this pre-school year madness. :)
As I prepare for the increase in work and therefore pressure, I wonder.. how do you deal with stress? I'm usually pretty good at it (I've had enough practice), but I have a tell - my house or my room goes to shambles! If I'm worried about a million other things, the neatness of my living space is the one thing I'll let go. What about you? Does everything carry on while your brain goes wild? Or do you have a secret tell too?
One last thing I have to share - I found this thank you card while out shopping and I had to buy it. Too cute!
