I've been a little down lately and a tiny bit stressed. That's mostly due to people constantly asking if I'm stressed about the wedding. The answer: "No, I'm not." The thought-but-not-spoken next sentence: "But you people constantly asking me is bugging the heck out of me." I've mentally been ready for my life with Hannah for a while now, the wedding is just a formality (albeit a very nice one, with God confirming what we already talked about).
With my brain a little out of whack, I keep flip flopping between extremes of what I should be doing right now. For example:
"I should get rid of my TV" vs. "I should add more movies to have at one time to my Netflix queue."
"I should buy a whole bunch of swimming stuff since I'm going to start swimming again" vs. "I should stick with the same beat up speedos I've had for the last few years... if you put enough of them on at once, they're not that sheer."
"I should buy a new bike" vs. "I should strip down my road bike to make it as simple as possible."
The true path that I'll take is, of course, the same that I've taken for the last few years: the most balanced one.
"I'll keep the TV, but continue to watch less and less of it."
"I'll replace my beat up swimsuits but hold off on any supercool stuff until I need it."
"I'll buy Hannah a bike."
