Frazzled and Starting to get Overwhelmed

Today was sooooooooo busy. Yesterday and today I worked nonstop and there is *still* a huge pile of paperwork on my desk. Normally I get maybe five or six applications for the bachelors programs in a week and the rest of my job is grade changes and evaluating. I got about 20 applications yesterday and another 20 today. I've never seen so many at once before. And I'm running out of time to get this "normal job" stuff done, because the registration meeting is Friday and registration starts Monday The following Friday we're hosting a workshop for the region colleges and I'm helping with that, too. (Bad timing on that!) Graduation is less than a month away on top of everything else - so it will just get busier! Eeeps!

So with all the extra work on top of being sick with either a stubborn cold or a possible ear infection, I was very frazzled today. Yoga is normally a relief, but today our instructor tried something new that probably would have been fun any other day. I had already left late from my office, parked in the wrong parking lot, left something in my car so was running late anyway - so I just wanted to stretch and meditate. Instead, she gave out cards with yoga poses and decided we each should take turns leading the class. I was way too scatterbrained to help anyone else focus, so my tree posture instruction was a bit flakey. Oh - and with the ear infection a bit unbalanced, too! Despite that - it was actually kind of cute hearing how everyone else described their positions and how to get into it. I hope we do it again, because on a good day it would be really fun.

Tonight Monkeys taped Fringe so that I could watch the Mentalist. (TV to lose myself in...) Except something went wrong so we watched the first 45 minutes of Fringe only to discover he didn't get the ending. LOL! We were just sitting there. It stopped just when she got whatever clue she needed to catch the bad guy, so we have no idea how she gets him or what will happen to the subterranian (sp) kid. We tried Hulu,but tonight's episode wasn't up yet. I guess I'll try to read it tomorrow on TWOP or something. Oh - but I had to shower with lots of lights on and the tv really loud because I was afraid of a bald kid with scary blue eyes suddenly jumping out at me.

I have babbled enough! I'm going to bed. Sleepy sleepy sleepy. New and busy day tomorrow. At least the time goes quickly and I am not as tempted to snack! I just wish I didn't want to Vincent Van Gogh my stupid ear. :(

Sadly, Fox caused that by letting "American Idol" run late. Nice cover of "Mad World" for the only "American Idol I've seen since I first decided it was emphatically not for me.

Hulu or Fox.com itself should have the ep up tomorrow.

And may your ear feel better soon!

sorry to hear your day was insane too, i guess this is gonna be one of those weeks
there goes my theory of "life improves after the month of march"
i really hate spring seasons, allergies, too much sunshine followed or mixed with too much rain and TOURISTS! ... and the whole "oh it's the beginning of a new year" crap .... i like to hold on to and cherish the past just a little bit before i move on with the year, but right after new years everything goes so CRAZY and everyone is concerned with MOVING FORWARD that no one wants to take the time and just enjoy the post xmas/new years days - hate it!

(ending rant now)

hope you enjoy your tv shows, i know i've been taking some time off to watch some tv shows and get caught up on things - quitting my job was ... well maybe a good thing :D

good thing i skipped yoga class and went to bed early to have my crazy ass nightmare, hehe
i really didn't have the brain capacity to even drive, and now i'm glad i missed that class, i do NOT wanna lead anything ... just do some yoga after someone ELSE does the demo, hehe
