What's going on out there?

Wednesday, April 26, 2006

I haven't had time to catch up on my favorite blogs...haven't even had time to link them all! How pathetic is that?

So why do our lives get so busy? I can't seem to find time to catch my breath, let alone get anything accomplished before twelve other things are added to my plate! I am busier now that I don't have a paying job than I ever was when I worked 10-12 hours a day!

I woke up this morning very early, with a feeling of panic washing over me as things started swirling around in my head...everything I needed to do! OK, I took on a new project last night too...I do not know how to say "No"

I got up and started writing things down on a piece of computer paper, just as they came spilling out of my brain. The paper was full in a matter of two minutes! Yikes! No wonder I couldn't sleep!

Since then I have been organising my desk so I can find everything that goes with all those projects. None of the things listed had anything to do with my everyday responsibilities. I still have all those to do too.

On top of all that, my fibromyalgia is really flaring up! Probably because I went to Women of Faith this last weekend and sat for two days, except when I climbed the three flights of stairs to the bathroom all the time. I am sure the standing in the bathroom lines didn't help much either. Sitting for long periods of time really causes alot of problems with fluid retention and flaring up my hips and knees. But the conference was soooooo worth it! It was awesome. Ladies if you have never gone to a Women of Faith Conference, I would highly reccomend it! See the link in my side bar for more information.

Well, I better get back to work on this list...please bear with me if I am not checking in very regularly for awhile...

you must do what is best for you... I must write as often as possible if not daily... when I write daily, at least an hour or so, everything is much better... just a matter of perspective, perhaps, but it works for me :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I read the blog about your husband and grandson...I can't begin to imagine the thoughts that raced through your minds. I wept as I read it.

I'm going to Women of Faith in Chicago in July with a girlfriend...then I'll go again in November in orlando with ladies from my church. It does do a number on you, doesn't it, but well worth the time spent.

Learning to say no is a lesson I had to learn as well, not always easy but it does get easier with practise :)

We've just been answering questions every day. Same old, same old. Haven't missed a thing really...

That answer does, of course, assume that we are one of your favourite blogs...

And we all know what happens when you assume...
