Stop the World!!!!!

I want to get off. At least tonight I do. I can't seem to stop the merry-go-round of commitments that nibble at me from every direction. I keep saying I'm going to just quit making commitments and stay still for a while. But that doesn't happen. I have trouble saying "no" when I'm needed by someone. However, I am now juggling some long-term commitments that all come due at the same time! Poor planning on my part, for sure. Now that I'm retired, you'd think I wouldn't have ENOUGH to do. Instead I'm busier than ever. Anyone else suffer from the same situation? Anyone else want to get off? How do you take care of yourself in the midst of all the busy-ness? I think I will just take time out and go to a movie tomorrow! How about you?

You said you are retired and can't say no to committments? What on earth has you so busy that you are stressing out over it. I can't sympathisze with you at all as I have full-time employment, family and home responsibilities to stress me out. When I retire I plan to do as little as possible and let the young'ens run around like crazy people - I plan to relax and watch them!
