How I was feeling.....

I love this quote, "I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once."

This is my personality....I feel I always have to be doing, doing, doing and doing it all "right" and my "TO DO" list rules me and, in fact, I have many "TO DO" lists......a work list, a home list, a today list, a next week list, a holiday list, a next month list, a cleaning list, an outside chore list and even a next year list.

The fun part of the lists is crossing things off. I am so driven by this and enjoy crossing stuff off so much, that when I do something not on the list, I will write it on the list, just so I can cross it off the list. I know....but at least I share this "sickness" with my sisters.....and they totally understand it.

I have been working very hard lately at simplifying and not putting pressure on myself for not getting "it" all done (Pinterest makes me feel behind the curve ball too....too addictive) or doing "it" all perfectly.

Sometimes I have so much I want to do that I end up doing nothing. I try to keep up, but with a full time job (that actually requires many unpaid hours due to the paperwork overload...), an almost 4 year old ( is plenty for me...), a home to maintain (....dust is my downfall....) and many DIY projects that I would love to spend time doing.....there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day....scratch get everything done.

I have so many things that I enjoy doing that my projects tend to stack up:

* zentangle cards
* reading
* writing
* organizing
* Pinterest DIY stuff (where to start?)
* finishing a doll house
* making wreaths

Anyway....feeling a little more together now, so I am back.

I have been feeling very overwhelmed lately as well. I think it's the time of year.

My to do lists now include time things, like research stuff with the kids on line, or help with homework, or cook a real meal...with veggies.

I find then, when I look at my to do list I will put less on and make sure the important stuff gets done as well.
