Wednesday, Kim tries on normal

     I am trying hard to be normal.  I have found out it does not fit well.  Just can't get into a routine. I have not had one for so long.  Or maybe I have had the same one for so long I am sick of it.  I really think that is it.  I am sick of this routine.

     I also think that the house thing has be befuddled. Every house we have sold has sold on the first day we put it on the market.  We have only had 3 showings in 6 days, so that has me worried.  Then again maybe I should just calm down.  You think?

     I did not go into super cleaning mode this morning as I figured if I tempted fate I could leave the house a mess and a realtor would call for a showing in and hour.  Then I would have to run around like a chicken with my head cut off.  I am really good at that role.

     Hubs is out mowing and just came in and said our trimmer seized up.  Great!  Although it is a gas trimmer and too heavy for me to use.  I would prefer a cordless, but with this huge lot a cordless does not have the power.  He is going to let it cool and spray it with wd-40 and see if he can fix it.  We live such an exciting life.

     The kids are coming down with the boat today, although I think it is a little cold for boating.  It will be nice to see Schmills again.  Every day with the the Schmills is a good day.

     I had better go look for some meat for dinner, as I will be cooking for the troop.  I also need to get some sewing done. Really the wedding dresses are getting out of control.

     I did complete a really hard wedding alteration yesterday and it will be picked up tomorrow, but I have a bridesmaid dress and a grooms suit due out Friday, also another wedding dress.  I just cannot get myself to go in and sew for hours like I used to.  Will I ever get that mojo back?

     Is it the crazy times that are doing this to me, or am I just developing some really lazy habits?   I don't know. I can't figure me out.  Struggling with this.

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

Kim

  1. I'm intentionally taking a break away form my new abnormal work day. Everything is different, so it's not worth worrying about.

    1. You are so right SAM, why do I allow myself to wallow here. I mean really, I need to grow up.

  2. The constant thing in life is change! Nothing is the same nor will it ever be IMO. In some ways that is good and some bad.
    I DO think you are over reacting to not selling already. I wouldn't figure anyone would be buying or selling at this time. Why would anyone want strangers in their house and I sure wouldn't buy without going in in person. You need to calm down a bit.
    You have no reason to be in the same work, work, work mood you were a year ago. You got things paid off and now you get a breather of a bit. Enjoy it!
    Blessings

    1. Oh Cheryl, I needed that. What is wrong with me, where is my common sense? Out the window with my work ethic I guess. You are so right, I do need to calm down I am totally unrealistic. This is what happens when I am locked up for two months.

  3. Assign yourself daily work hours. You are employed by your customers and the daily work hours will get the job done.

    Patience on the sale is needed right now. There is concern entering other's homes. Strangers don't know if you're being considerate of mitigation of it they are walking into an unsafe place. We all know that it's 17-22days before we would see symptoms so that is lurking.

    Hope you have a great afternoon!

    1. I know, I don't know why my brain thinks this should be immediate if at all during this time. I just want to whine, thanks for listening and feel free to give me a virtual slap....:)

  4. I concur on the house. The corona virus has affected everything, including the housing market. I think it's good though you've had 3 showings!

    1. I don't know why I did not realize this, I can't believe I am so ridiculous. I guess lock down has taken all my common sense as well as drive.

  5. I think its just the virus thing that is making the house selling/showing thing go slow for you Kim. People are being extra careful & there's just not the movement out there that would normally be happening. It will happen - just breathe my friend.

    1. I know I need to take a chill pill. I can't believe that I am so stupid as to think that this is a normal time to sell a house.

  6. The pandemic has really made it hard for people to even get a loan let alone go look at houses. Most people are out of work, on unemployment or their savings. A lot don't want to walk in some one's home due to the virus.

    I agree with Elle. Schedule daily work hours and also let your kids know those hours. I just had Daughter 4 flip out yesterday because I wasn't answering my phone or texts or FB because I was in the gardens and don't take the phone with me. Even my brother asked me to at least put it where I can hear it ringing while in the garden in case he has to call me about Daddy.

    1. I get that from my kids also. I don't carry my phone out into the yard, as I drop it and lose it.

  7. I hope everyone's safe and staying safe. I just read that the virus is mutating and getting much more dangerous. I don't want to alarm anyone but it's time to get right with God, cause this is getting downright scary! Stay home and stay safe, guys!

  8. If having a routine makes a person normal, I guess I am not normal. I know when you will buckle down to sewing--when you get in a bind.

    1. You are right about me when the heat gets too intense I will be at my best.

  9. This virus and lockdown is messing with everyone mentally. It's hard to keep our old routines.

    1. I always thought I was stronger mentally than I am giving myself credit for, but I am not. It really helps to have this blog to bounce things around and realize how unrealistic I am, it helps so much.

  10. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
