You Have to Learn to Pace Yourself. Pressure.

Things last weekend were crazy busy. It was all good busy, but like The Guy says, "Good or bad, it's still stress".

So, as I was stressing about all that I had to do, The Guy counted up all of my stressful events and we came up with 5.

1. Attend Stinky's graduation on Friday night and subsequent dinner with the family at Village Inn.

2. Get up early on Saturday morning, drive to Burlington and race Snake Alley up one of the twistiest, steepest hills I've ever ridden.

3. Come home and get a lesson in canoe racing from my brother.

4. Cook and clean and shop and get ready for...

5. Stinky's graduation party on Sunday.

I'm adding a 6, but it was not a stressful thing. It was to relax after all of it. On Monday The Guy had a cold and I woke up with a migraine, so we spent the day, going out for breakfast, coming home and napping, going for a bike ride, then going out for lunch then, coming home and napping and then going to a little party at our friends. Ahhhhhhh!

Congrats to Stinky on graduating! I wish that I had a red grad robe. We had purple and gold.

Yes, a big cluster of events, good or bad, can be stressful and nap-worthy!

Congrats to Stinky on her graduation.

Sounds like it was a hell of a weekend. I could do snake alley downhill, but not uphill. My legs woud never speak to me again.

I didn't do any graduation parties or bike races, but I did go kayaking (calm lake) and have done quite a bit of cooking, cleaning and shopping.

You are so right! Things can be good, but also stressful...the two are not exclusive.
I'm glad you two had a little day of eating out and napping after that non-stop action weekend :)

napping, it's a good thing.
Congrats to Stinky.
