It's Always Something

It's been awhile since I blogged. In part, because there's so much going on in my life it's hard to know where to start or what to say.

The other part is that since I have very few readers, I really should focus on what I want to say to myself.

And what I want to say to myself is: slow down.

I feel like I'm always in a hurry--to get stuff done, to make stuff happen, to catch up on emails, laundry, checkbook balancing, calling friends, etc. It's just always something. And I'm always behind.

So, as i said to my sister over the phone this weekend, I just need to learn that I'll never get caught up and just get done what needs to get done and let it ride.

See, I'm a pretty organized person and pretty good at staying on top of stuff, like friends' birthdays and such. So, I have high expectations for myself.

But withth two kids and two careers at our house, life happens and I have to do my best.

This weekend I did get all of Molly's summer clothes shopping done at a Mom2Mom sale, I took Ed out for a really nice dinner for his birthday, we did a shitload of laundry, and I got some sleep. Ed did the grocery shopping and I did get some minor cleaning done. But there's a whole buncha stuff I didn't do.

But, more importantly, we did start to get Sean healthy (he got a bad cold on Friday, poor guy), I did play horses with Molly and take her to Michael's to pick out some birthday gift projects with me, and took her to the library on Friday to get a whole new trove of books.

I'm just never going to be caught up. I just need to do the best I can.

But I still set impossibly high standards for myself. That's just me.
