There are so many things going on, yet I have so little time. The project, that's taken over my weekends and evenings, I've been working on is going well and I'm looking at finalizing everything by the second week of November. I can't wait, but it's moving on forward from here. I am, again, preparing for another board meeting, so the stress is building up every single day. I like the challenge and the stress keeps me motivated, but I am hoping that when all of these projects are through, I am ready to unwind and celebrate the holidays. These days, looking forward to the holidays is keeping me sane. I know that sounds a bit scary.
On Sunday, I managed to hop on to my friend's car and drove to visit Luray Caverns and Shenandoah National Park (pictures are coming soon). It was a wonderful breather from my insane routine. The smell of mountain air, the sight of beautiful fall foliage, and the touch of wild flowers really brought me back to my senses. There is so much life away from work and I've been simply too busy to see it.
Today, as I woke up to a chilly October morning and thoughts of work and holidays fill up my fun deprived brain, I decided I had to simply write.
