So you’ve guessed things have been crazy for me this year. I’ll admit, I spread myself too thin. Luckily things are starting to calm down. My todo list has things going off it more often than things going on it, I’m finishing off a term as secretary for the SELS board, the MWNE program is starting to run smoother after some rough spots caused by the 501(c)3 process, and my I’ve lost a bunch of weight since my knee surgery a few years ago, making feel a lot better health wise.
Another thing that’s happening is that I’m starting to get the itch to talk to people, to post on this blog, and to get outside. That’s a sure sign that my stress levels are lowering. When I’m stressed, I tend to turn into a hermit and focus on whatever it is that’s stressing me until it is done, closed, completed, or otherwise finished. People often refer to me as a “hermit crab” during those times and I really can’t argue with them. I think now they may have to find a new nickname for me.
