There is just not enough time in the day!!! I am exhausted, but the last thing I want to do is sleep. I’ve been “off work” for the past 3 days and my house looks worse than it did before then! To many things competing for my attention. The laundry is clean, but still piled on the couch, the dishes are done, but not put away. My kitchen table looks like a fabric store regurgitated on it, and don’t even get me started on my kids rooms…. But it’s been a full, productive week even though I feel like I got nothing accomplished.

I did alot, but didn’t finish much. My first project of the week was to put away the kids winter clothes because it’s now spring in TX and hot enough for shorts most days (and of course, the following day, a cold front moved in) I did accomplish that, but didn’t get all the summer stuff in their closets, due to the fact I don’t have enough hangers. (first project semi-completed) plus one child = too few hangers for clothing

My second project was to learn to sew so I can make my own cloth diapers! My wonderful mother spent her time tutoring me one evening and the next day, I completed my first diaper!!! Well, sort of… I finished the diaper, but couldnt find a place around here that carried plastic snaps. So, they are ordered and in the mail, but the diaper won’t be done until they arrive. (project 2 semi-completed)

I then wanted to write a blog on the daniel class I am taking. I wrote one earlier about a sentence I read, but wanted to delve into it deeper. So, I started writing, then the app on my phone crashed, so I quit…. Haven’t attempted it again. šŸ˜¦ (project 3 = not even close)

I did complete grocery shopping for this week, however I forgot to get the hangers while I was out that would have completed project 1. Epic fail. šŸ˜¦ (project 4 = almost, but no!)

Project 5 and 6 – refer to previous statement about laundry and dishes.

Project 7 I began today…. I went to a material store to get much needed pins and a pin cushion. Walked out with four kinds of material and a pattern for an outfit for my daughter. Tried to lay it out and get it cut. Didnt quite get that far – hence the fabric fiesta on my kitchen table. (project 7 – maybe tomorrow… )

Now in writing this all out, I realize maybe I overextended myself this week. I was feeling rather brave, but now I just feel like I bit off more than I can chew. Good news/bad news – tomorrow I must work. Good- I won’t have to look at all my semi-completed projects at home and I might actually finish something at work! Bad- all the project will be waiting for me when I get home, still in the half, almost, not even attempted state they are in now. Not at all a good feeling for a type A semi-perfectionist (can you be semi-perfectionist?!?! Probably not, but I was trying to make myself feel better… Not working…) like myself.

Oh well, there’s always the weekend…. Maybe I could start on the flower bed too. šŸ™‚
