I have been talking abut Lorelai’s birthday party for months now! The things that I want to do and the things that I can do.
A hell of a lot of planning has gone into this party!
I like doing these things myself as I feel that it is important for my children to see how important they are to me.
I have done a lot and now it feels like I have done nothing!
I am stressed!
The party is on Saturday and I have about 10 days of work that I still need to do before then!
Now if you are good with math you can calculate that my children have 2 parents so it’s about 5 days worth of things to do for each parent.
Problem one: We only have 4 days!
Problem two: I have to go shopping on Wednesday night so in actual fact we only have 3 days and now I am stressed!
I do this to myself every year! I start planning months before and it all seems perfect! I work out a schedule and sort of stick to it. Then the week before the party I realize that there is no chance of me finishing everything on time and I get stressed.
Stressed = me getting less done!
Hannes is a great help and I would be lost without him helping me, but I am still stressed.
For all coming to the party on Saturday if it is an unfinished mess I am sorry!
If it is perfect and I look less stressed and happy make sure to mention to me how awesome everything is and how awesome I am for getting it all done and that I stressed for nothing!
