Lots on my Plate

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Lately, I have been feeling quite overwhelmed. Poor fiance has taken the brunt of that.

I kind of stepped back and was looking at what has been going on and thinking, "Am I crazy?"

First and foremost, I'm trying to plan a wedding, which is only 3 months away. All the odds and ends need to be tied up at this point which includes a lot of vendor calls and emails. That's a part-time job in itself. So on top of my full time job I have that part time job.

I am also really trying to get this blog to grow and evolve. That means more frequent posting, participating in link-ups, tweeting and getting to know more people. The past month this has been so fun though! I have met a couple of the best bloggers and can't wait for my blog to keep growing. But it does take work. And that might even be another part-time job.

So that's a full time job and 2 part-time jobs. 

Oh and guess what? We are seriously considering moving at the end of our lease. And notice needs to be given by the end of this month. Making a big decision in a short amount of time. Well, that's just fun. But we are looking because I really want a washer and dryer in my place. Having to trek our laundry back and forth, back and forth really is getting old. 

I always said I function better when I have a lot to do. But for some reason all of this seems to be getting the best of me lately. I do feel overwhelmed. But I also know I need a new plan. A better plan.

A time management plan for the blog and wedding planning. When I am working on it and what is going to be posted. Organization will help me I'm sure. I have found a couple of neat tools to help me out. Blog calendars, post topics and I recently downloaded Evernote. See what that can do for me.

I know the light is at the end of the tunnel. I just need to have better plans,

What are your strategies for dealing with a lot on your plate? How about blog planning?


  1. take some deep breaths and smile! All these things in your life are so exciting and life-changing! Enjoy the craziness while it lasts...it is an amazing time! Thinking of you and good luck!

  2. gahh. The end of wedding planning is. the. worst. Just push through it.
    And move. Seriously. I would kill for a washer and dryer. And a dishwasher. And a bathtub. I swear I live in a real apartment.
    Um.. blog planning? I try to keep a running list of blog post topics. I also will write posts to save in draft on my phone using the Blogger app.
    The one thing I don't do is schedule twitter posts, although I really should.
