Hands busy feet messy 手忙腳亂

The Chinese expression "手忙腳亂" literally translates to "hands busy feet messy." It means busy and flustered. That's how I have been lately. The weekly travel feature is taking more work than I thought, and not yet in a routine, I feel like my hands and feet aren't keeping up and staying on top of things. Also, barely having any time off, being new to the Health & Medicine beat and dealing with bosses suffering from stress-related psychological disorders really complicates the hands busy feet messy situation.

I'm so happy to be rained in today. I deleted a few hundred emails (we get press releases by the hundreds every day), wrote, did laundry, caught up on sleep and now I'm going to catch up on reading.
