Has your brain ever been so full with one thing that you couldn't focus on anything else? That's been me this week. Ignoring my own "Say No" advice, I volunteered to run my middle school daughter's Bingo Family Fun Night.
It's not that it's difficult to plan. I had to solicit donations, organize prizes and the evening, and plan out the space. The problem... there are a lot of details. And those details have taken over what precious little brain space my children have left me with.
This week when my kids, or anybody else really, talked to me, I was honest, "I promise we'll deal with that after Family Fun Night."
The sad fact is, my brain is at capacity. I dream about Family Fun Night. At least last night this dream involved a rogue group of zombies attacking the school during the event.
I will be able to function starting Saturday. Good thing since my middle daughter's birthday is Tuesday, February 7. I'll be scrambling, but I know I can do it. After all, I'll be motivated. She'll be 10. (insert image of weepy mom here).
My ROW80 Update
Writing: Brain. Too. Overloaded. At capacity. I sat down and tried to write, truly I did. Sadly, I could write a dissertation on the ins and outs of organizing a middle school Family Fun Night, but that doesn't do my WIP any good. I even tried a #ROW80 #teamsprinty today. 345 words in 45 minutes. Hard work, but more than I would have done without my #ROW80 buddies. Thank you.
Blogging: Daily here, and I posted my less than thrilling review on Mom in Love with Fiction. At a previous check in, I asked for advice on how to handle a poor review. I hope I did okay: Night Sounds, Pam Young.
Reading: See Writing. Brain. Too. Overloaded. I just started The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I'm so excited to read this, but it's deep and I'm a shallow pond right now.
Editing: Working on several projects at once. Another reason the brain is overloaded. Each project is very different, thankfully.
Exercise: No time. This isn't helping the brain fog. At. All.
February Letter Writing Challenge: I'm so excited to be participating in A Month of Letters Challenge. I mailed my first letter today.
I hope my next update is a bit more exciting.
What do you do when your brain is too full?
