Can someone please remind me to stop doing so much stuff?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: there are just not nearly enough hours in the day to get done all the things I want to get done. Let alone to get in anything even resembling relaxation! It seems like every weekend I tell myself that I’m going to just spend a chill weekend at home, doing some vegging out and some organizing1 and every weekend I get invited to do something awesome and, combined with a hockey game or two, suddenly it’s Monday morning again and I’m exhausted but facing a full week of busy, busy work. Not to mention all the things I try to do after work – CIHR applications, writing reference letters, teaching, blogging, running2, sometimes Wednesday hockey games, actually hanging out with friends – which means I never seem to get to bed before midnight, and then I’m back up at 6:30 a.m., progressively more and more exhausted each day.
This weekend is no exception – I’m still exhausted from being away last weekend plus a busy week (tonight is the first night I’ve actually spent entirely at home since Feb 9), yet I had several awesome invites for stuff to do on Friday and Saturday and then I have two hockey games on Sunday. And then it’s Monday again.
Can someone please remind me to just stay in next weekend?

- though I have to admit that my running has been non-existant the last couple of weeks [↩]
