It felt like a long and tiring day… only… it really wasn’t a SUPER busy day. Sure, it was a full day. I got a fair bit of work done (spent some time on Green Party of Saskatchewan businesses, spent some time on Camp fYrefly wrap-up, spent some time on edits and enhancements for TD Photography, and spent some time just being a mom)… but it wasn’t like I was going out of my mind running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off. A lot of work, but time to breathe too. Tonight though? Tonight I’m tired. Not just in body, but in mind. I’m exhausted, but relatively peaceful too. And that’s something I haven’t felt for a little while now.
Okay. I still have a million things to do… but you know what? I’m working myself to the death. Camp starts on Thursday, and all day Wednesday I’ll be in doing the youth leader and adult volunteer training. So that really only leaves today and tomorrow left.
So… I figure I’ll bring my computer and my printer with me to camp. My room can be my office. And as I need things, I’ll do them up and print them off. I’ve been SOOOO sick the last couple hours that I physically HAD to stop working or my keyboard would have gone real bad real fast. I’ve spilled a smoothie on a clamshell iBook, and that would have been NOTHING compared to what would have happened if I didn’t put away the computer when I did.
I’ve learned that sometimes it’s best to listen to our bodies.
I’m going to bed early tonight. I won’t be any use to anyone if I push myself any further. So, if a few papers don’t get printed tonight, if I don’t finish up my little table top schedules, camp will go on and be just fine without them. LOL But it won’t go on just fine without the coordinator. So the coordinator is calling it quits. At least for the night.
Yesterday I worked on camp stuff from 9 AM until 2 AM. Today I again started at 9 AM… but I was forced to stop at 6:30. And that’s just where it’s going to stay. I’ll work on some more stuff tomorrow, and then bring my “office” with me to camp so that it’s handy for any little detail things that I may need it for. Camp’s going to rock! And I sure as hell want to be well enough to enjoy it. 😀
With little more than a week to go before Camp fYrefly Saskatchewan starts seeing campers and volunteers arriving in the city, I’m finding my schedule jam packed with all sorts of details that need attention. It’s super exciting knowing how close we are getting – but also a little nerve racking too. Months and months of work about to culminate in one absolutely fantabulous event. 🙂 I’m sooo excited, but I’m also stressed.
Want a little honesty? I know that even if something goes wrong, even if something ends up forgotten, even if some strange thing pops up at the last moment? I know that it will all be just fine. We’ll handle it. And everything will still be amazing.
Now… to those campers who have neglected getting their acceptance packages in by the deadline? Yes YOU. Get your butts in gear. I know where you live! LMAO Don’t make me come knock on your door. If I have to wear my mean face, well gol’darn it, I’ll pull up my big girl panties and put on my mean face. But I won’t like it – and you’ll have to pay if you make me do it. 😉 So get your paperwork in!!!! Like, now! 😛
