It’s weird, I have had days that were worse and of course, days that have been better. Tonight, I just feel worn out.
It could be some of my late night’s over the weekend coming back to haunt me. One of those nights I was up until 4:00 in the morning because one of the old dogs wasn’t sure what it wanted to do. The other nights though, I was up until 1:00 or 2:00, watching movies or reading. Not writing though, which is said, but not part of what I am talking about tonight. It was a holiday weekend and we wanted to have a nice weekend to catch up on movies and TV shows that we missed last year.
I am sure that most of it is a result of the late night over the weekend compounded by several short nights since then. It doesn’t make it better knowing that but there you go.
Under the tired though is growing frustration, which is most likely fueled by the lack of sleep. Regardless, I am frustrated and overwhelmed, and it sucks. There’s so much to do and most of the time I just feel like I have no idea where to start. There’s a ton of little things I could do but I’ve gotten to the point where I even struggle on which of those things I should I do first. My house is a mess. It’s not so far gone that if we got a call that someone was coming over in an hour that we couldn’t get it mostly presentable for our surprise guests. That sort of cleaning though would essentially be what Faith refers to as ‘rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic’. I just keep moving things from surface to surface not really finding a permanent place for anything. It’s about to drive me batty.
The last three weeks have been mostly about getting Boo’s school stuff straightened out and being prepared for class. Our third week is almost over and we seem to be falling into a pretty good routine. This week I have been able to work on the crafty plans for the couch cushions while we watch TV. It’s good that I am getting that part done but it’s not getting my house any cleaner.
Well, in a way it would help because the new foam cushions are taking up space in the hallway. Of course there are 52 other things in the hallway that need to be dealt with but who’s counting, right? The problem with the hall is that I am in the middle of organizing stuff in the hobby/craft room. It’s gotten to the point that the work I’ve done in there now involves two other rooms. I am not ready to rip up another room (or two) so we have the stuff in limbo, hanging in the hallway.
Ok, so here’s my plan…
Go to bed and get some sleep. Then tomorrow I will try to tackle some small things and not worry about the other stuff.
