Not sure if that's the right expression or not, but don't seem to have the same enthusiasm as I normally do for my blog at the moment. I think it's because I am juggling more "balls" at the moment trying to get a lot of things done in a short time.
I am finding the older I get the faster time flies by. Also I don't feel as organized as I used to be. We're on a deadline to have the attic finished by the 16th of May, so we are busy doing things in there every day now, including me. I am getting to the stage where I will start painting the walls and ceiling. The goal this week is to get the ceiling painted twice. I know it doesn't sound a lot but I have work and visitors and other things planned also this week, so fitting in painting is hard.
I cancelled guests coming for dinner this past weekend as we were so busy, so am not doing that this week. I don't remember when we last had anyone over to the house, other than the kids. Then there is the garden, the grass is growing like crazy and I know I could start cutting it if I wanted, but with the price of gas up to $1.369 a litre I am putting it off as long as I can. I need to spend a week just going through the raspberry patch weeding it. Never mind weeding all the flower beds and the veggie patch!!
Oh and did I mention the state of the house. I am sure you can write your name in the dust!!!
My goals for today though are to clean the bathrooms.
Do a load of laundry.
Go and vote.
Do more work in the attic, still got some primer to put on a couple of places and sand down the baseboards where I filled in the nail holes. Hopefully get the first coat of paint on the ceiling.
Made a gourmet supper........I am being sarcastic here!!! Got four chicken breasts out of the freezer yesterday, so will cook them and have two for tonight's supper and two for tomorrow nights supper.
Got a couple of phone calls to make.
Try and clean some of the house.
Plant the cotoneasters.........though I already know that won't happen!!
Plus a hundred and one other things that need doing.
So all in all I am feeling a tad overwhelmed at the moment and the blog is being neglected because of it. Do you get days/weeks like that?
