Those days sneak up on me with little warning. All of a sudden I've run out of space on my to-do list, errands, events and responsibilities all seem to fall on exactly the same day. It's days like this that I give myself a little extra time in the morning to wake up - a whole extra hour is the best.
I make breakfast, which I hardly ever do, and take out the largest cup of coffee I can find. Then begins the pep talk. A time for me to sit in silence and list out all of the things I have to accomplish. The day's play by play reels through my head as I cut strawberries and fill my coffee maker with fragrant grounds & cinnamon.
It's nice. I have plenty of time, so I can move slowly without feeling too stressed. I listen to the coffee rumble and brew, giving myself a few "you can do this" cheesy liners. It helps, I swear.
It's one of those weeks. Wish me luck.
