During the week, I feel like I have zero time to do anything around our house. By the time we get home from work, do dinner, bath time and bed time, it’s well after 8:00 and we’re preparing for the next day. A conscious effort to get more sleep has been made, and we’re somewhat achieving more sleep. Which means all of the house stuff gets left for the weekends.
Last weekend I knew I had overdone things. It’s hard for me to remember that I can’t do everything on my own (or even with people. I definitely need help doing the heavy lifting!) Today was no different. I got ideas into my head this morning and after a workout at the gym, we set out to have a little fun and then make a trip to Lowe’s.
I’m thinking we should have skipped Lowe’s. That store inspires me to do EVERYTHING in my house.
That inspiration turned into me doing laundry, clearing out more from our former guest room, wiping a hard drive on a computer we don’t need anymore, moving items around, planning for an upcoming consignment sale, cleaning the bathroom and dreaming of when/if we can ever remodel our kitchen or bathroom.
Which now finds me confined to my couch or my bed for a couple of hours. It was too much and my body keeps telling me to slow down.
I’m hoping for snow tonight and tomorrow morning. It’s middle of January and we haven’t seen any sort of significant snow this winter. A few flurries won’t cut it. I need to see snow covering my yard. I have flowers that are popping up already and that makes me sad – and also messes with my head.
