Creating Lists

Whew.  Today is one of those days.  I've been racing since I woke up this morning in the 5 o'clock hour.  I was able to get in some yoga even though I've managed to mess up my shoulder temporarily.  Morning routine was smooth even as my anxiety built about the upcoming day.  I have to confess sometimes I have a bad habit of overbooking myself.  For those of you that know me well I can imagine a guffaw at this point with a "Sometimes!!!"  This weekend is a good case in point.  One of the amazing things about Fall is all the wonderful festivals that come along with it!  This weekend is the Duluth Fall Festival:
It's always starts off with a fun parade which my girls march in.  Alex marches with the Duluth High School Orchestra - the only marching orchestra in the state ;)  and Sammie and I march with the Duluth Girl Scouts Service Unit.  After the parade my scouts are meeting up to travel to the North Georgia Mountains for a pseudo camping trip.  Since we're only staying one night we're sleeping indoors but will be having the campfire, hiking and other fun stuff that goes with camping.  So today has been a day of lists.  Lists for buying supplies for the DHS Orchestra kids snacks (forgot that list at home and had to wing it at Costco); lists for feeding hungry scouts and chaperons; lists for who goes where, when and why!!!  I love lists!  Not that they always make it with me to the store but they help to declutter my brain especially on days like this where it seems to be full of To-do's when it is longing for time to create!  So I'm putting in the work today to create a magical weekend of fun and outdoors for 16 really cool young ladies.  I'm also remembering to Breathe in peace and Breathe out love when I start to feel the stress of..."Oh my goodness what have you done!!!"
