It's Spring Break, and I'm about to break!

Today signals the beginning of Spring Break.  Students are leaving campus, off on adventures.

Me?  I'm here.  It looks like my office manager will be out until the 19th, leaving me to do Open House on my own.  And I must admit, the thought frightens me.  Yes, I've helped to set up Open House before, but I've never been responsible for ordering all the food and the like!

I don't know what it is, hearing that she's going to be out for additional time kind of freaked me out.  I've been doing this job on my own since December, so two additional weeks shouldn't matter.  But it is.

So this means I need to make a plan, because I might freak out.  I'm going to be very alone all week.  This means music and other types of noise to keep me focused.  (I know it sounds backwards, but my mind wanders in silence)  I need to figure out what has to get done every day.

And most of all, I need to not panic.

Like I'm doing now.

And yes, I know I'm freaking out for no reason at all....
