It's OK to Be Pumped Up!

Its Ok Thursdays

I'm linking up with Neely and Amber this week for "It's OK" Thursday! I felt like I needed a venting and justifying sessions, so let's begin...

It's OK...


...to wish you could pause time.

...to need a break from life after piling your plate so full that you burn out.

...to try to keep the house tidy, but let the couch win.

...to have three lists going right now that are overwhelming me:
25 Before 25, Writing Goals, 2012 Goals.

...to be really excited about having tomorrow off!

...to not be sure of what and how to pack for my very short trip. A girl needs options!

...to be super pumped up that I'm finally meeting Christin in real life!

...to be both nervous and excited about Saturday's race. Yes, I'm nervous even though I'm completely prepared for the run!

...to already be sad that I won't get to come home to M on Saturday night.

What are you saying it's ok to today? Happy almost Friday, friends!

"to need a break from life after piling your plate so full that you burn out."

AMEN TO THAT.
I plan on spending the whole summer recouping from an overflowing plate the past 4 years lol.

Yay for your long weekend :)

3 lists going would totally overwhelm me. (though I must admit I have that many... I'm just ignoring a few right now)

good luck on your race!!

Sara said...

I agree with so many of these! My couch wins more often than I care to admit! It fights dirty! :)

Krista said...

Best of luck this weekend Amanda! Hope you have a blast on your blog date :)

Have fun on your trip! And good luck on your race! I'm sure you'll do great!

I've been so slack about cleaning this week, the couch has definitely won

Claire said...

Amen for letting the couch win because I have officially begun the packing/boxes process and my apartment will be an absolute mess for the next couple of weeks. It's driving me CRAZY, but I need to learn to live with it for a while and let it go. I'm the only one I know attempting to neatly arrange and organize my moving boxes.

Kristin said...

While lists are a good thing, too many can wear you out! Good luck with your race and happy 3-day weekend :)

The couch definitely wins sometimes...... haha!

Janna Bogert said...

Have fun and yay for meet ups! I feel ya on being sad about not coming home to M. Other than my obvious reasons, I NEVER wanted to be away from Will when he was home. I had to go away for work for two weeks, and I thought I was going to die! Haha.
