Random Thoughts On A Saturday

~ Just when I think I can’t possibly juggle more balls in the air, I find that I can. I have so much work in so many areas to finish by Tuesday, it’s ridiculous. It’s all good, though: all good things.

~ The Lenny concert is Tuesday evening. I can’t imagine a better way to relax and have some fun with my family after meeting my deadlines. (I WILL meet my deadlines, right?) (Never mind, I know I will.)

~ I finally have myself on a steady workout schedule: five days per week and six classes (Zumba, spin, and weight training/abs).

~ My new, steady workout schedule puts a little bit of a rush on the rest of my day, which is tough, but I have to prioritize myself this way–especially because most of my work is currently done on my laptop while sitting on my tushie.

~ I spent yesterday afternoon with some Chicago blog friends, working on a little project in the city and laughing like crazy. I spent yesterday evening with some suburban Chicago blog friends, having dinner and laughing like crazy. I went to bed reflecting on how blessed I am to have made such wonderful in-real-life connections through this crazy online thing I do.

~ Speaking of online/real life tie-ins, Tracey and I will be announcing the audition information for LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER CHICAGO on Monday, over on the LTYM-Chicago site. Keep your eyes peeled!

~ Okay, seriously. I have to get to work now.

      Well, on Wednesdays I TAKE Zumba class in the morning and TEACH spin class in the evening. Otherwise I wouldn’t do two in one day. 🙂

    I’m sorry. You said “balls” and I started giggling and now I don’t know what you wrote. Lemme read it again.

    Ok. Yes. I had fun, too! I felt incredibly cool to hav ea TABLE when everyone else was struggling to find a spot to STAND. Of course, we were leaving at 10 when people were just GETTING THERE.Dang. Coolness lost.

      The timing of our arrival was stellar. That may never happen again!

      P.S. Balls.

    Good for you girlie- I’m glad that you’ve got a routine going and are only juggling good things right now 🙂

    I am impressed too. That’s a full schedule. Did you pencil in time to sleep and eat?

      Unfortunately I never forget to eat. 🙂 It’s a blessing AND a curse…
