I wish this wasn’t so funny because it’s true. The only way I got through this last week was repeating over and over – I just need to get through this week and then I’ll be good. And then I have to face the reality that while I was managing a long week, I was pushing things off that weren’t urgent or important – that now have suddenly jumped in urgency and importance.

And Steve is always the voice of reason in these situations when he reminds me that A) I choose to run at this pace (truth bomb) and B) We’re kidding ourselves if we think anything is starting to slow the first week in November – It’s a swift ride downhill until Christmas.

Despite being a long week – it was full of so many awesome things. It is weeks like this that are my absolute favorite and at the same time make me want to crawl in my bed and sleep for weeks.
