Lately I’ve just felt so overwhelmed by my “to-do” list. Like I’m doing and doing and doing and never not doing but I never get to the bottom of my list. And since I never get to the bottom, I never get to anything fun, or relaxing, or just anything I actually WANT to do. I’m trying so hard to do all the NEED-to-do’s that I never get to the want-to-do’s. It’s so frustrating. Am I just the worst time manager? Well, I know I’m not the best. Do I just have too much? I don’t know. Why haven’t I been able to find even ten minutes to start that book I got for Christmas? I don’t get it.
Anyways, this morning, I decided to forget the to-do list and just chill out.
I had a really long shower.
I cleaned the bathroom, but I wanted to do it, so it was ok with me.
I helped Oliver with writing a book he’s working on.
I braided Ivy’s hair. Apparently completely wrong because she burst into tears as soon as she looked in the mirror. It was so bad she threw herself sobbing onto her bed and fell asleep.
I ate lunch with the kids.
And I’m going to have a nap.
I still do need to do a couple things this afternoon, and there are a couple sewing projects I’ve been wanting to start for forever. I want to make it happen this afternoon.
I’m going to make fajitas for supper, and I want to make donuts for dessert, just because.
I just want to have a good day, for goodness’ sake.
Funny story/side note:
Last night when I came home from work I went to climb into bed and nearly tripped on Ivy, who was sleeping on the floor.
I’m starting to think she’s got narcolepsy. Or that sleep is a coping mechanism for her. She’ll definitely put herself to sleep whenever things aren’t going her way. Yesterday and today she had already had a nap before 11:30 am. It’s weird.
Anyway, cheers to a good day. And a nap.
