Priorities… – Geek Turned Athlete

Priorities…

090903-O-9999D-001

(this is actually a pic of one of the two hangers and 1 tent that we have vendors in!)  All the proceeds go directly back into the community!

Sometimes I have to cancel plans with friends because I have deadline with school coming up or something that I have been planning for a while has taken over my life momentarily (ie. Bazaar).  I had one of those moments today.  I had to cancel lunch plans with great friends today because I needed to do a few more extra tasks than I planned with Bazaar.  They were last minute lunch plans but I still felt terrible.  I made a commitment with this Bazaar thing first though!  And honestly (and sadly), I made it more of a priority than the lunch. If I did this all the time, a lecture to myself would include putting your friends in front of things like this would be warranted.  Since I rarely do this, instead, I am just thankful for understanding friends.  I would understand (and I have understood) when they had something more pressing come up.  :) I also think that it is important to know the difference between always blowing your friends off and being responsible with your commitments!

This morning I input all of the stuff that I have going on for the next 5 weeks and almost had a nervous breakdown.  I have got so many things scrunched into this one block of time before our wedding (if you just started reading my blog, check out my About page to read about why we are getting married again)!  After our wedding (which is in 5 weeks), I plan on taking some more time to smell the roses (or wine), and hang out with my friends more!  I have nothing but school going on after that! 

On the workout front: It RAINED almost ALL day.  Yes, I could have gone this morning, but that would have been the smart thing to do!  I thought, Oh I’ll just get it done this afternoon!  BIG MISTAKE!  The summer is coming to an end, and I just got really spoiled with the weather here in Germany lately.  I need to get back into the mode of going running as soon as there is a break in the clouds because there is no guarantee that it won’t be rainy all day after that!!! 

Just a reminder: Don’t forget to enter the French Chocolate Giveaway for some FREE Chocolate!  To enter, just leave a comment on last Wednesday’s post telling me your favorite place to travel to and what you like doing there. :) Make sure that you comment by 12pm EST this coming Wednesday!  I will randomly pick a winner later that day at 2pm EST!

Well, I’m off to take the dog out for a very short walk in the rain!!  She is running circles around me!!

Do you have any important priorities that need to get done today?
