Crazy Busy Defined

This weekend, our crazy busy looked like this:

2 birthday parties
1 pizza run
1 temple session
1 frozen yogurt stop
1 previously recorded movie
3 bowls of cereal
2 pieces of cinnamon toast
2 soccer games
4 quesadillas and soup
1 BYU game
1 timeshare presentation
1 Chadder's run
1 concert at Thanksgiving Point
1 bag of kettle corn
2 hours of football game review
4 more bowls of cereal
1 Primary talk on prayer
1 Relief Society lesson on testimonies
5 hot ham and cheese sandwiches
4 cups of frozen lemonade berry yumminess
1 Young Women's board meeting
4 gifts made and wrapped
1 jello salad
1 hospital visit
1 family dinner

A tip for the week: "At the heart of making the most of life today is the ability to treasure and protect your connections to what you care most about: people, places, activities, pets, a spiritual connection, a piece of music, even objects that are dear to you. But you must not have too many connections or none will flourish. Pick the ones that matter most to you and nourish them religiously; make that your top priority in life, and you can't go wrong" (by ADD expert Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., author of CrazyBusy: Overstretched, Overbooked, and About to Snap - Strategies for Coping in a World Gone ADD).

So, I guess since all of our activities helped us to treasure and protect the connections we care most about, we are still in good shape, just very tired.

**How do you cope with the crazy busyness of life?
**Did you do anything fun this weekend?

I was crazy busy this weekend. At one point I caught myself saying, "I can't wait until this weekend is over." Then I thought, this is fun stuff, enjoy it!
We went to the NY "Forever Strong" premier. (which turned out to be quite a party) A friend came in town and we spent the day in the city, went to a football game and had a Fondue/pamper birthday party at my house. Crazy busy but oh so fun!

Our House is a very, very, very fine house said...

I want to know more about this "frozen lemonade berry" stuff. Do you make it? Do you buy it? Where can I get me some?

Oh GEEZ! I'm not sure I "cope" with my busy life. Sometimes I complain, sometimes I pray for patience and sometimes I'm ok. Just depends on which side of the bed I wake up on in the morning. HAHA!!
