My dearest readers… Today, I have that nervous feeling. Nervous about what? Many things… Mainly, I’m nervous about the results I’m getting tomorrow from my son’s testing earlier this month. I’m nervous about that, about my job search that’s been going on for over a month now, and so many other things.
But what do we do with all this nervous energy? I, for one, know that it can take you over if you let it. It turns me into a basket case, to be honest. So, when I get nervous like this, I typically throw myself into projects to try to take my mind off of it.
My last project was my youngest son’s birthday party. I busted my butt on it for about two weeks to make sure that it went off without a hitch. While the day wasn’t perfect, it was a great day for him and everyone who attended, complete with a cake that I stayed up until 2 a.m. perfecting for him.
My latest project (while it is mostly throwing myself into a job search) is getting back in shape. I have split my day up into sections… I wake up, drink coffee, and do a quick job search. After that, I get the kids off to school. I come home, I watch a show on Netflix while working out (lately, I’ve been hula hooping for 45 minutes straight through one show of Chuck… And I’m contemplating moving to Dexter). Then, I move on to pilates for about 30 minutes. After that, I shower, and dedicate 2 hours to filling out job applications. By the time that is over, I eat a quick lunch and workout for about 45 minutes more before picking up the youngest from school. Between that and an added workout in the evenings that the boys like getting involved in, I spend 3-4 hours daily working out… And I’m actually finally seeing some results in my midsection.
Now, if the workout was enough to rid myself of this nervous energy, I would be very happy. Unfortunately though, I think I need a new project. I’m not sure of how much more my body can take…
I’ll see you all tomorrow.
