I am neither of those things, though my husband is. It sounds like you might be suffering from decision fatigue. Lots of choices and planning this time of year.

My inbox hit 14,700 unread messages today. Clearly I shouldn't advise in this situation.

"Because this seems like it shouldn't be so hard
and yet I do find it hard."

Dear Jamie,

you have listed

1) a logistic problem involving more than one person and their schedules (long weekends)

2) another logistic problem involving more than one person and their schedules (visits)

3) a personnel and coaching task (folow-up)

4) another personnel and coaching task (boy-scout)

5) yet another personnel and coaching task (girl-scout)

All these tasks require talking to other people, listening to them and understanding them, thinking, empathy and finding the "right" solutions.

This. is. a. LOT.

So - it IS hard. It doesn`t mean you should not do it, but you may find it hard and you may take the proper time for each of them (may =allowed to).
