I’ve fought against it.
I’ve tried to pretend it isn’t necessary.
I thought if I just moved a little faster, I’d find a way.
I thought that if I just stayed up a few extra hours every night, I’d “get “er done”
Now I’m just thinking… what was I thinking! I can’t get it all done! I have so many unfinished projects that it is unreal.
Things like embroidery jobs for very understanding customers. Yes I said customers. I’m starting to catch up there but the jobs keep pouring in. I’m not complaining, but I’m not keeping up.
And then it is the photo job I started. There are 37 years of photos that years ago I carefully placed in albums with magnetic pages. You know the kind. The kind that stuck the photo solid and then slowly ate away at it. I’m carefully removing them from the albums and scanning each and every photo. What a walk down memory lane! How time consuming. But it will be worth the time it took. Right? Right? Please say right!!!!!And I have to get the Liturgical Roles, the monthly Calendar, and of course the weekly bulletin done at Church next week. I haven’t even gotten the bulletin done for this week! Remember, this is a very, very part time job. And of course it is a holiday week, so I have 2 days to accomplish this, plus update the web site. Nobody will notice if there is no bulletin or calendar, right? And does it matter if nobody knows what they are scheduled to do? And it doesn’t matter if the web site doesn’t get updated. Right? Right???? Please say right!!!!!!
But I think what finally put me over the edge is I am getting company for Thanksgiving. Jim’s sister and her family are heading our way for a visit. I found out yesterday. I’m thrilled that they are coming to visit. They are coming exactly a week from today. And they plan on staying 4 days. I’ve been so busy with all of the other things I’m not getting done that I’ve also not been getting my cleaning done. I need to clean! They won’t notice if I don’t, though, right? Right? Please say right!!!!!
Oh and I need to cook. Right? Please say nah, you don’t need to cook. In addition to day to day meals for guests (3 days worth), plus 24 for Thanksgiving, I think I’d better plan on cooking. Actually I love to cook, but once again, it takes time. I’m wazzing here!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone and remember…. we have so much to be thankful for. Even when things are not going the way we want, we have much to be thankful for.I am thankful for my loving family. I am thankful that mom and dad are safe in heaven with God. I am thankful for this great country. I am thankful for my health. I am thankful to have wonderful internet friends. I thank God every day for all of my blessings.
