I feel like everything in my life is in a state of 'getting ready' right now.

I'm trying to prep for the first session of a LARP that'll be running in a couple of weeks.
I'm working on choreography and planning for a silks routine that, if I'm lucky, will be ready for stage-time in a few months.
I'm trying to put together plans for Thanksgiving dinner, between menu and hosting and figuring out who'll be there.
I'm gearing up for Module 3 of my Hospice Certification Program, and trying to ready myself for whatever that entails.
I'm trying to organize our winter trip (to New Orleans this year), and figure out timing and housing and travel and what to do while we're there.
I'm pulling things together for the Arisia charity raffle, and trying to ramp up outreach for prize donations.

And all of this amounts to a lot of work, worry, and anticipation without a lot of concrete accomplishment. I'm generally pretty good with delayed gratification, and I like keeping busy... but I also need to keep this in mind when I start asking myself why I feel so frazzled and unproductive at times.

When do you need stuff for the charity raffle by? I have a shawl I'm working on for you that I want to make sure gets done and into your hands in time.

I'm so sorry I didn't get back to you sooner - thank you so much for making stuff! I'll need things by.... say the end of the first week of January?

And thank you again!

Good for getting ready - and *VERY* good on you for pausing and remembering why you're feeling frazzled. A lot of pains are easier when recognized and measured. One day, a friend needed help moving, and it was *pouring* rain. It was horrible. But I could remind myself that I wouldn't make the remaining four people work in that rain one fourth again as long to make up for my help. It made it more bearable.

And just giving yourself permission to be frazzled, to remind yourself, you're not weak or whiny, just *wow* busy - can also be a wonderful thing.
