Things just seem to find a way of getting away from us don't they? I have a jillion things to do myself before I leave town for a few days on Thursday then gone for a week to a workshop I am organizing. And it doesn't matter how many things I cross off the list, a few more seem to just appear out of nowhere.
Get the highest priority things done and let the rest go. (I know, easier said than done.) And don't worry about the fat - just think about enjoying that beach!!
Once you go on your vacation, just soak up the peace and ENJOY it - you deserve it!!
