Guess I'm Gonna Have to Delegate

So I'm looking at my calendar and I discover I have scheduled myself to be in three places on the night of Tuesday, April 6th. Why do I do that? I have been trying to scale back and not have things be so stressful. There's a wonderful YouTube clip that is just beautiful:

It really struck me when it said, "Avoid rush and haste..."

This morning a friend posted on Facebook, "Does anyone else feel overwhelmed by all the things we have to do?" I wrote back, "I pretty much just ricochet through life from one panic attack to the next."

She replied, "Sophia -- you are so funny! I feel better already." The funny thing is: I wasn't kidding.

So, I guess I'll see if the girls can help. Scotty is so busy with his Master's program, I am hoping they can fill in. One can take Jared to the concurrent enrollment orientation for Dixie College, and one can take Ian to his baseball game. Actually, Scott could probably just drop him off and pick him up, and not stay for the game.

And me, well, I will be shirking my responsibilities for one evening to go see "Barrage" out at the Tuacahn Ampitheatre with my girl friends from work. Amazingly enough, I think this may be a first for me. I've been racking my brain, trying to remember a time when I've just done something with ladies, other than Relief Society, and I seriously cannot remember a time. There must be something wrong with me. No wonder I am so stressed! Ha! Guess I am finally graduating to a new level. Good for me, eh?


  1. Good for you! I hope you have a fun night out! And lets hope your girls can help you out!
    I think we expect so much out of ourselves and sometimes we get too much going on. I don't have teenagers yet, but I'm trying to enjoy the fact that we aren't carting them around to every activity under the sun yet!

  2. Good for you! That Barrage looks like a fun group. Do they play classical or more of a fiddle style? You have fun!
