So Much To Do...So Little Time!

I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about all the things I have to do today. Tuesday is my late day at work. I start, and end, late. But I have tons of things to do at home before I can even get ready to leave, arriving there at about noon.

I hate those nights where the weight of the world seems to be borne on my shoulders. The light of day usually brings a sense of relief; not so this day. I feel an overwhelming sense of doom, as if there will never be a time when I feel caught up with my long list of chores. Not to mention my bucket list. I don't think I've been able to cross one thing off my list since I made it several weeks ago.

So this post will be short, I'm afraid. Sigh! I have to get up and moving, doing my housekeeping chores now so that I will be ontime for work later. Tonight will be late, as will Thursday, at least for this week. But next week, Thanksgiving week!, brings a small break with no late nights--at work, that is. But I'm sure I will be up baking pies and planning for the visit of 2 of our kids, one bright spot in a gloomy period of responsibilities trumping life.

I am sending you positie vibes! The "chores" of life can be a bit cumbersome just remember to take some time, even just five minutes, for yourself so you can keep your sanity and motivation going!

Things ALWAYS seem worse in the middle of the night--I write about that often. You have to flip the pillow and move onto better thoughts.

It's okay--everyone is overwhelmed these days, so many things going on good and bad it is hard to not feel overwhelmed. Don't add the bucket list to the to-do list--it will only make them less fun. Put them aside until you are ready--like the boring days of January, February, March. It will give you something to look forward to once the craziness of work and holidays subside!

Baking pies, filling the kitchen with wonderful smells, the joyous company of your kids, these go in your bucket list, the things that matter from the heart!!!
Take a deep breath and give thanks for each new day! Baby steps.
Glad you took time to write today, even a few sentences is always worth a look-see by me!
