Right at the point of WHELMED


Good morning or afternoon or evening depending on where you are and when you read this. πŸ˜€Β  I have just entered the week I have been referring to as “Hell Week” for the past month and yeah, I know that isn’t the best way to put it since it is all good stuff… but unfortunately the name stuck.Β 

This afternoon around 2 I will meet up with a friend and teammate to do some shopping for events coming up this week.Β  Right from there I will go to work and prep some things for tonight and the weekend and be home probably around 7:30 pm.

Tomorrow, Sunday I will need to be at the church around 7 am and leave around noon.Β  Then I will shop for our IHN serving week (Homeless week) which starts tomorrow. I will pick up the guests at 4:30 pm, and a group of friends will come and we will all do dinner together and then I will stay overnight there.Β 

Monday morning after I take the guests to the day center I work a half day.Β  Will hopefully go out to dinner and maybe a movie with my hubby.

Tuesday I work a full day and have lots of prep work to do for Wednesday which is our annual members meeting.Β 

Wednesday – work all day, train new people in with IHN and do the members meeting… I will probably not come home between 8 am and 9 pm.

Thursday – start working on all members info I gathered last night and cleaning up from the big meeting and prepping for the 10 Year party which is Sunday.

Friday – possibly my day off… depends on what needs to be done for the 10 Year, probably some shopping.Β  Maybe some set up.Β 

Saturday – train in new people at IHN, then our company Christmas Party.

Sunday – up at 5 am and tear down IHN, clean up and move the van to the next hosting church.Β  Hopefully get to the 10 year party set up by 8:30 am to help as that starts at noon.Β  Clean up and home by 3 pm… I hope. πŸ˜€

On the bright side… horizon…. goal, whatever you want to call it… I am taking Monday the 7th and possibly Tuesday the 8th off.Β 

Listing my week out was actually therapeutic… I see tiny pockets of free time in there that I need to take full advantage of.Β  Hopefully Monday, Tuesday and Friday will give me a little time to re-energize.Β  I am an introvert that needs to charge up my batteries by being alone, preferably with a book. πŸ˜€

For todays Saturday Snapshot I thought it would be fun to actually show pictures of my Saturday morning.Β  A snapshot of what my life looks like now as I simmer at the feeling of whelmed…. but not quite overwhelmed:

The recliner I am hanging out in this morning… snuggled up with my favorite blanket.
COFFEE CUP and the book I plan to finish today.
Breakfast of scrambled egg whites, spinach, and shrimp left over from Christmas.

Now I am going to check out a few of the other Saturday Snapshot posts (Thank you Alyce), write a review, make a meme button for our Library, send out a book club email and year end voting form and hopefully spend a little time int hat book pictured above before it is GO TIME.

May your week be a lot less crazy then mine…. bear with me while I get through this marathon of events.Β

  1. I would be “whelmed” too with a weekend and week that you have.

    You breakfast looks yummy. I like your chair and your coffee cup.

    Stop by if you like to see my Favorite Books of 2012.

    Happy New Year!!

  2. As I look around my living room, I’m jealous of those relatively clear table surfaces in your photos! I’ve mostly been home lately, but still haven’t cleaned up much from Christmas. One (adult) child out of three has left, and second one leaves today. Third one stayed overnight at friend’s, so house relatively empty today.

  3. Ohew – I was almost whelmed just reading that πŸ™‚ Hope you have some relaxing reading & blogging time this weekend.

  4. Same sort of weeks going on here, Sheila – it’s been good to see everyone…but really exhausting!

    I love the photo of your chair – looks sooo comfy!!

    I hate to rush the holidays out, but I am looking forward to Jan. 2 when we are back home and everyone goes back to school and work! lol

    Hope you get to enjoy those pockets of quiet time this week. Happy New Year!

  5. I feel like pretty much of a slacker compared to you, but I’ll choose to see my upcoming days off as a much needed blessing and try to treasure the slow pace. Enjoy your pockets.

  6. The chair looks comfy and breakfast looks delicious! As it’s almost noon and I haven’t eaten yet…Makes me hungry. You sure have quite a weekend cut out for you! I love…just at the point of whelmed but not overwhelmed!! Good luck and Happy New Year!

    • It was a good breakfast πŸ˜€ I have not touched overwhelmed because so far things are manageable and I think if I can keep my head on straight I can delegate my way out of some of the pressure. πŸ˜€

  7. Oooh, that comfy chair and blanky look so welcoming! Enjoy. Have a happy and healthy 2013!

  8. I love the look of your day (the relaxing part). I really enjoyed Forgotten…hope you do, too. And I wish I’d had that breakfast! lol

  9. You have to find a few minutes in that schedule for yourself! Whenever I get close to whelmed, I go for a walk. It doesn’t help get things done but it does clear my head of the ‘whelmed’ feeling.

  10. Enjoy your busy week. Although being busy can seem like too much, it’s nice to stop sometimes and just be thankful that we have so many good things to do. I always stress out when I’m busy but then when I actually have free time, I start going stir crazy wishing I had more to do. The irony there is amazing.

    Happy busy week feeling … whelmed and perhaps at time a bit overwhelmed. And Happy New Year. Enjoy the time off when you eventually get to it.

  11. healthy delicious breakfast, coffee, and a good book and a week schedule. I’m impressed.
    Very nice photos

  12. It was fun to get a visual visit of your Saturday morning. Best of luck with your busy week!

  13. I really just want to say the entire chunk of lines from 10 Things I Hate About You, but I’ll stick with: “I think you can in Europe”

  14. Whoa! Busy! I guess I need to think about pulling together a best of 2012 post. And maybe this week I’ll get to update all my 2012 challenges to see how I did. LOL
    I completely forgot Saturday Snapshot as I was getting into the office.

  15. I hope you managed to get some downtime in that comfy chair, book in hand. I’m worn out just hearing about how busy your week is!
