Today’s a housekeeping day around here. Not in the sense that I’m actually going to clean the house. HA! Fat chance of that happening. Zoe’s been around every day since Friday and since she’s had a nasty cold, she’s been clingy and whiny. But my childcare is back today. Yeah!
So, it’s time to take a look at what happens when I can’t get stuff done for six days. Since Friday nothing has gotten finished. Nothing. I’ve got a dozen unfinished projects lying around.
When things pile up like that my energy gets scattered, my focus divided and I don’t really make progress on any one thing. I just feel overwhelmed with all the nebulous stuff which needs to happen. So by finishing up projects my brain gets cleaned up too. My energy can return and things move forward again.
Okay I might do a little light house cleaning. Like the flat surfaces of my desk, which are filled with piles that cascade out every time I open it up. Another result of so many unfinished projects.
But I’m not doing dishes (no way) or vacuuming (the horror) or even thinking about working in the garden (appalling thought). No horses will be bathed today, no matter how much they need it (absolutely not). And if I can avoid it, no meals will be cooked.
So, on to breakfast and finishing stuff up!
