The Busy Life of A Grown Up

As a college student I always read about these working women who do not have time to grocery shop, cook dinner, work out, or even shower, let alone read a good book or relax. It seemed unfathomable that there would be a time in my life where I would be too busy to do something as simple as cook dinner, or go for a run. Especially since my last semester of college I was taking 17 credits of upper level classes, working 15 hours a week, sitting as the secretary of the recreation management society, and the teaching/education coordinator for the adaptive services committee and I still found time to work out, cook dinner, and occasionally spend time with friends.
So imagine my disappointment when four months into being a working woman I find myself with hardly enough time in the day to feed myself, let alone work out, keep in touch with friends, make new friends, blog, read a good book, and the list can go on and on and on.... My weekdays are spent either at work, thinking about work, planning an activity for work the next day, going to church activities, or doing something church related. My Saturdays are spent cleaning my house, going to church functions, and on a rare occasion sleeping in. Sundays, the day that I am supposed to "rest from my labors" are spent attending meetings, going to church, and then coming home to gear up for the next week. Being a grown up is not all it's cracked up to be!
This week I did not go to work on Thursday or Friday, due to the fact that my wisdom teeth were extracted by the oral surgeon. I was excited because I had this long list of "to-do's" that I would finally be able to get done. It is currently 9:03pm on Saturday night and I have not completed one thing on my "to-do" list. However I am determined to complete at least one thing on my list, which is why I am currently writing this despite the fact that I just took vicodin and am starting to feel the side effects. Yes, I am still alive. Yes, I am loving my job (most days). Yes, I am so busy I can hardly stand it, and Yes, despite the business of life I love being a grown up!
