Do you ever have days when you feel like you will never accomplish everything on your To Do list? Well . . . actually I usually feel like that pretty much every day! But I’m trying to simplify some things, minimize other things, streamline a few projects, and even get rid of a couple of responsibilities that really no longer need my attention. But it isn’t easy! Especially when, for whatever reason, you get behind on all of those obligations.
That happened to me (again!) this month. We had a mini-vacation scheduled for early in the month of October, so that put me off my routine, even though I planned ahead and thought I had everything taken care of before we left. But, when we got back, there was laundry to do, homework to finish for the girls, bills to pay, online projects that were calling my name, unpacking all of the stuff we took with us, and a ton of other things that just needed to be done. That was bad enough, but then . . . .
Both of our girls got sick with coughs and congestion, headache and fever, within just a few days of returning home from our little trip. So, more scrambling to get homework caught up, checking on fevers and medications, making sure they drank enough water, and all the other thins that go with having sick kids. Of course, that didn’t make it very easy to get back to business. But then, I got the same stuff and have felt rather miserable ever since.
Finally, yesterday, I started feeling a bit better and had a little energy, so here I am working on my blogging projects. Along with a million other things like laundry, cleaning the kitchen, sweeping the floors, and cleaning bathrooms. I hope you are healthy, and I’m also hopeful that, now that we’ve had this stuff early in the season, maybe it won’t come back or at least not for a while. I’m doing my best to stay healthy, I hope you are too! Please join us for this week’s Favorite Things linky party. I’ll try to come around to visit some of you this week. See you soon!
