That's what I am.

Too many "yeses" and not enough "nos." Too many projects and not enough time. Too much work to do and not enough brain power.

Two of my friends have said, "Taryn, I've missed you at the gym!"

I know. I don't have time for physical exercise. So instead, I do things like stand on my tippy toes if I am standing up for a long period of time, or do jumping jacks after I get out of the shower, or do push-ups before bed. If I don't become inventive and work exercise into my daily routine, it won't happen at all. I am hoping that running around all day and shooting wedding photography counts as exercise, too. Well, it better count for something, because I usually lay in bed on those nights and ache until I fall asleep.

I don't even really have time to eat, but I do fit that in somehow :) And I allowed myself to sleep in this morning... which was glorious... but I find that when I do that, even thought it feels wonderful, I always regret that I don't have that time back.

Anyway, I need to sign off from here and keep plugging away on my current project, but being the perfecter of procrastination, I decided to update my blog. Why not? A definite worthwhile use of my time!

Love you all, and until next time...
