That is the exact opposite of our life right now. Instead being all nicely scheduled and organges we are leaping wildly from one commitment to another, trying to cram in all the stuff we need to get done. It’s not horrible, actually it is often quite enjoyable, but it is tiring and I’d be a fraud if I tried to spout on about attempting to be more organised at the moment. I’m holding fast to my lists and not even bothering to try to manage anything else… and yes the laundry is well out of control.
Well that has come to a grinding halt too. We are waiting on architects plans before we can move forward. Even the Baldy Boy’s new shed (which we had hoped would be well finished by now) is way behind schedule because of paper work taking forever. Thankfully we’ve done this sort of thing a few times before and we know that even the best laid plans often don’t come to fruition and schedules get thrown out the window at the drop of a hat, so we are all good. I’ve reassed my time frame and adjusted my thinking to include a winter with only half a house and I think we’ll manage. ‘As long as it happens eventually it’s all good’ is my mantra and repeating that over and over is what my renovations plans consist of right now.
So now all I am left to write about is ‘Contemplate’…. This is what we are doing a lot of right now. Sorting out potential schedules for next year. Seeing if we can fit in everything everyone wants to do without any clashes. Dreaming about a long hot summer and weeks where we don’t have to be anywhere or work to anyone else’s time table, a nice lazy way to ease into the new year. Idly day dreaming about what things I’d like to do once the crazy christmas rush is over – a blog re-design for me, and maybe take on a few new blog design jobs for others, reading (real books as well as blogs), sewing, making a scarecrow, thinking about what I might like to blog about next year.
2009 the year of….. ?
Washing Line ’09? Nah I can see my blog stats dropping at the mere thought of me blogging about how dismal I am at laundry each week.
Sunshine ’09?? Might be good for the summer but once the cooler weather comes back I’d just spend each pining for that sun.
Hmm… maybe I should just leave the idea of a Monday blogging subject all together? But I do so like to have something to inspire me to start off the blogging week. Suggestions anyone?
