A friend at work came by to see me yesterday and he asked if I’d blogged recently. Sadly, I said “No.”. Life is absolutely nuts right now. “Busy” if you will.
Work is absolutely insane. I work in insurance and if you’ve read the news in the last 2 months you know that Obamacare open enrollment is RIGHT NOW. And it.is.NUTS.
If that wasn’t enough, every body and their brother wants individual life insurance by the end of the year. It’s like everyone just said, “Hey, I might die before January 1st so let me get some insurance today…by the end of the year.” Side note, if you don’t have life insurance, you need it. And if you need an agent, just let me know. I don’t sell it but I can give you a recommendation.
So, work is nuts. And then it’s also holiday season which means absolute…well, just madness. Last night, for example..here’s what we had on our agenda:
- we had an insurance carrier whose holiday drop in was last night (I skipped it)
- our neighborhood mall had it’s holiday extravaganza (pictures with Santa, anyone? we didn’t go)
- one of our favorite local shops had a holiday drop in (totally missed this one :( )
- we went to go see “White Christmas” at the local theater because one of my dear co-worker friends was in it…and it was wonderful!
Every night isn’t like this, but most feel something like it. I’m sure your calendar is getting marked up pretty good right now too! Maybe something like this:
Then there are the two kids plus one husband and a dog that I have. :) They keep me super busy….and laughing!
A few sweet friends have said to me recently, “I don’t know how you do it all.” The other day one mom said that to me, and quickly followed up with, “Well, I do know…”. She does…and you do too. I’m no super-mom/wife. I’m just doing life like every body else. We all have a bunch of balls we’re constantly juggling throughout the day. You don’t want to drop one of your balls, just like I don’t want to drop one of mine…so we press on and we keep juggling. “Just keep swimming!”
If I stop, I might just fall asleep…and then I could probably sleep for a year :)
Life is busy right now. But it’s good. Keep things in perspective, don’t spend too much money but do spend too much time with your spouse, your kids, whoever is in your life and enjoy the season we’re in right now. For, you’ll blink, and it will be gone.
Happy weekend, friends and enjoy the eggnog and gingerbread lattes…they’ll be gone soon too!
