Some times I wonder if I
will ever ACTUALLY
on all that needs doing.
I have a week off for spring break,
if I spent the week doing
all the things I SHOULD;
dentists, Dr's,and misc appointments;
I would have no time for anything else.
If I spend the week
NOT doing those things,
I have to take off work
or put those things off
until the summer!
I also have a yard full of JUNK,
stuff that has accumulated
or been moved and needs a home,
a trailer full of things to sort,sell
kids rooms that have been 'let go'
to some degree
(you know, the closets and under the beds.!)
I am moving my middle child into my room,
(I get the couch)
which involves sorting EVERYTHING
theirs and mine...
I have animals that need baths
and cages to clean,
a car thats a disaster area,
a porch to sweep and tidy,
weeds and weeds and more weeds...
A utility room that has become a 'catch all'
therefore its time for a clean,
not to mention its a new addition
and needs a coat of paint!
I have laundry to do..
winter clothes to put away,
summer clothes to sort out..
I will admit my artificial Christmas tree
is STILL on my porch..
I am sure with all types of things
nesting in the branches!!
So where do you start??
Its a problem working moms
married or single have..
but being single means
I also have the oil to change,
the yard to mow (or get mowed)
the shed to clear out,
the green house to de-weed..
ect, ect, ect...
so when do you throw up your arms in defeat?
how do you pick the priority?
as in truth
they are ALL priorities..
and this is the week off!:)
its almost funny...
because in addition to all that
my FIRST priority
is my kiddos!
Time with them
a week for them off school,
and time that we don't normally have!
OH, and have I mentioned
and eating right?
and a few minutes here and there for me?
so, now that I know
how much there is to do..
and I really would rather ignore it all..
I will take it in pieces and steps..
and maybe the priority is NOT doing it all..
but instead doing all I can,
and learning to live with
or without the rest!
getting your to do list done,
yet living in stress and dysfunction
may not make the to do list so worth doing...
