yep….been MIA for the last few weeks…at least, I think that is how long it has been since my last post. Honestly, I could use a serious vacation – time off – down time – time to catch up and to breathe. It’s my own fault, as I take on a lot of things myself, but I can’t seem to help it. Like most folks, pulling in the 40+ every week just to earn money for groceries and such and it still never seems to be enough. I was never good with money…and will openly admit that. I have wasted more in my lifetime than I care to even admit or acknowledge and yet, I am very thrifty too which makes it all the more frustrating. Anyway, not at all what I mean to blog about today – really just trying to get my mind in a place where I can get back to a somewhat organized life.

I used to be the girl with the immaculate home, I had  to-do lists with nice little check marks beside all of the things I had gotten done. I had pocket calendars filled to the brim with things I did and people that I saw and now, it is good if I can actually find my calendar…which I obviously desperately need!! I have made a decision that I must get back to my lists – and yes, more than one list. I need one for work, for my photography, for the house (inside and outside projects) and then of course, there are grocery lists and chore lists that I am going to make for my boys. Won’t they be excited!! I am even going to make a list for my husband – not that he will read it, but it will make me feel better.

Whew! I feel better already…..and now, if I can just get one list made before I go to sleep tonight, I will have made some progress and for that….well, I deserve a check mark!! 🙂
