Monday, Keeping it all straight

     I have a hard time keeping things straight with so much going on here at the house.  With the wedding and the shop and the garden and all the work that comes with just living, it is easy to get overwhelmed.  I am trying to take things one day at a time.

     I got in a good nap yesterday which was nice. I also made a cake pan full of ratatouille, and along with the rice pulled out of the freezer and the tamales I will not have to cook for a few days.  There is also a large helping of spag sauce I will probably make a goulash with, so I am free for the week except Wednesday when I will make a more substantial meal.

     The garden is getting to that point that is is crazy time and we must eat, eat,eat fresh everything. Lots of cucumber and tomato salads, fresh cucumbers in vinegar and salt. Eventually there will be too much squash and we will start giving is away.  Hub's little orchestra and quartet group is mostly elderly retired ladies who love all the eggs and the produce so I have a place where the things are appreciated.

     I have a young scout coming over the get to some yard work I need done before the wedding, as I realize I will not get to it.  I also have a friend coming to help in the shop tomorrow, to catch me up on the pile and then I think I will be able to stay ahead of the game.

     There are two wedding dresses that I will work on today, one will have a fitting tomorrow.  Then I think I am home free on wedding things and I will take nothing else in that has to be done before the wedding.

     I made my last order to Amazon last night for the final wedding things, once I was able to do up flowers and figure what I needed.

     The adjuster on the insurance claim called this morning and they are working on getting it sorted out so I can get my key fobs replaced.  Every time I want to drive my car I have to borrow Hub's key.  It is a pain.

     Sissy arrives this Friday and I can hardly wait to see her.  Lil sis was gone this weekend and I ran over to her place a couple of times and fed the cats and watered her flowers.


     Do you ever feel like you are on a treadmill and you are forgetting something important?  That is how I feel right now and I think I have things pretty well under control.  But that nagging worry of what did I forget?

     Well all I can do is all I can do, so I guess I will start doing and maybe I will feel more in control.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  1. Kim, \My treadmill only has a few steps on it. There was a time I could do as much as you do, and it was only a few years ago! You do well. When you get the house paid off, you can slack off some.

  2. I'm with you. I've decided I need to create a new goals list for the next few weeks, because I feel like I'm running in circles!

  5. I am happy that you got a nap. You are always so busy. I don't know how you do it all but you seem to. You are amazing. I hope you and Sissy have a wonderful time.

  7. I know how much is on your plate right now (actually your plate is always full but now it is overloaded) so don't sweat anything that is not critical!
