Is it just me or does this time of year feel incredibly overwhelming. I'm looking outside at all of the leaves on the ground knowing that I should get out there and do something about it. Then I look at the all the leaves still on the trees and the wind blowing and wonder why bother until they are off the trees.
To top it off, we decided to renovate our bedroom and after getting the walls painted and the carpeting taken up, my husband got a really bad cold and had to take a few weekends off. So here we are 1 bedroom being renovated and the others full of all the furniture taken out of our bedroom and it's 3 weeks until Thanksgiving
and even though 2 of my children can't make it home, we are going to need to get this done so that we have a bedroom available.
And let's not forget about the holidays....the decorating, inside and out.
One of my daughters is a reporter and is at a new station this year so she is working Christmas and won't be home. She will be home the week before so I am hoping that everyone else will be in the weekend before Christmas so that we can celebrate a few days early.
Did I mention I'm leaving for Florida in 2 days for a week because my daughters bought me a ticket and didn't want to leave it open ended for fear I would wait to come?
So, all of this plus trying to stay on track with my food and fitness program. NO PRESSURE!!! Right???
Anyway, I know that I am so blessed.
...I have a home and a yard and a family! I have the ability to write and the SP community to inspire and support me.
