Talkin’ out loud

24 07 2008

My head is so full of stuff….I’ve been extremely productive lately, and I still have a billion things I want to do before my motivation to “do” goes away 🙂  I’ve been carving stamps for my new letterbox series, cleaning the house, putting away fresh corn in the freezer, planning K’s 5th grade curriculum, thinking about the school calendar, trying to pick up Flylady habits, serving in the children’s ministry at church, tying up loose ends with some Girl Scout troop stuff, struggling to keep in touch with people, trying to learn about tree identification, some Spanish, and dabbling in other new topics, like web design and personality profiles, reminding myself that at some point I need to get back into the habit of regular exercise, thinking about writing a cooking curriculum, wishing I could make time to letterbox, looking at the landscaping that needs attention, trying to keep the laundry in check, floundering around with the public school system’s inability to get organized while suppressing the urge to scream and volunteer to help them better organize at the same time.

I’m out of breath.  Now that you know what I’ve been doing, you can appreciate why although I enjoy the dumping that I get to do on here, I really don’t have time to be consistent.  I also don’t get to keep up with other bloggers that much, so I sort of have to sit down and binge once in a while and catch up 😀

I’ve checked email today, unsubscribed from some things that I really just don’t spend time reading anymore, and decided to take a few minutes to “talk out” all that is on my brain, in hopes that it will get organized in there in the process.

My washer buzzed at me, my stomach is growling, and I’ve realized that I haven’t stopped to drink anything today!

I hope you don’t feel tired now 😀  Gotta go while I’ve still got go in me 😀

Promises, promises

9 07 2008

So I promised myself I’d do more than complain this time.  So I lied- or uh, well, I made a promise I couldn’t guarantee, which is pretty much the same, yeah?  I just feel scatterbrained today.  Ever have one of those days when your brain is just mush?  Liar. 

Well, I can’t think.  I got up early, which may be the issue.  I have to blame it on something, don’t I?  For every thing, there is a reason.  I am not a morning person.  I’m not one who does well on little sleep.  Not that I got little, really, just, well, a little less than I like. 

Woke up at 7:40….early by my standards, thank you – and skipped off to the salon to get these highlights retouched.  Now wouldn’t you think that’d be cheaper than getting them done in the first place????  It may take the same amount of time to do, but it certainly requires less color!  Plus I’ve got more “lights” than I wanted.  What can I do but deal?  I’m out 50 bucks plus a tip – what a joke – on me.  I like the highlights, at least when they’re a bit less than what I have now, so I guess next time I’ll call around.  You live and learn.

Taking K today to drop her off at Girl Scout camp with a buddy.  I hope they have good weather.  When we pick her up, we’ll be goin’ campin’ ourselves with our oldest friends….when weather matters not.  Last year when we camped with them, it poured the entire time, but we had a blast.  I was worried that we’d never get them to go again, especially since it has taken us years to get the female counterpart to agree to “rough it” in the first place.  She said she’d had fun – and I guess she did, ’cause gettin’ her to go again met with no resistance whatsoever 😀

Life is good….even if my brain is mush.

I think I’ll treat myself to a Tall White Chocolate Mocha on my way to pick up K’s camp buddy.

Wanna cut my head off!

8 07 2008

Oh, my gosh!  My head is hurting AGAIN!  I am soooo sick of getting a headache almost every single day!  I have way to much to do to have to deal with this $%(*#@&!!!  I’ve done so well, today, too, so far as getting crap done…

I came home from a weekend away with a ton of laundry (picked up J, who has been at Boy Scout camp all week- plus the dirty clothes from our weekend at my dad’s houseboat), and after a full day of stair-running to keep the clothes circulating from the hampers to the closets, I can see the bottom of all the baskets, as well as the hall floor 🙂 

Of course, my to-do list is always longer than life, and I had bigger goals than clean clothes for everybody today.  My head is just bursting.  And I still have dinner – which should’ve been thought about and begun already, and I had wanted to work on K’s 5th grade curriculum (really just customizing – I have most of it leftover from J), and I wanted a clean master bathroom, and a clean kitchen floor…

I’m gonna pop some Motrin and have a Raw Tea in lieu of cutting off my head, and try to come up with dinner.  I’ll do more than complain next time.  I’ve much in my head – which is probably the problem 😀
