Keeping It Together

Today is going to be a day of trying not to beat myself up for falling behind. There are times when you just can’t get it all done. I am upset with myself because I am falling behind in my classwork and things I need to get done around the house. I find it interesting that my mind automatically gravitates to what I did not do instead of what I did get done.

I try to let myself off the hook because of circumstance (me not feeling well) but my brain says that I am using it as an excuse. If I really wanted to get things done I could, sick or not. And this is true. So where do you draw the line? When do you let yourself feel that it is ok to let things go for a little while? That is the balance I am looking for.

I uncovered the memorial garden for a few hours yesterday. It warmed up and the sun came out. It will be warmer still today so I plan to uncover it before work and then cover it back up once I get home. The plants are thriving still despite the hard frosts (I had to scrape the ice off my windscreen yesterday morning). I thought I would have to water them yesterday but the dirt was just moist enough to keep all the plants happy.

I am going to try to get my classwork done before work this morning. I have to get a short story written and submitted. It was due in the wee hours on Monday (something like 2:36am…. why such an odd hour I have no idea). So I will need to reset my deadline and try again. I guess that is one of the keys…. keep trying.

I am happy to report that Moose ate all his breakfast this morning. He actually came into the kitchen and waited for me to get it ready with his sisters like he used to do. He’s not gotten sick so I am hopefully that we are moving in a positive direction. I told him yesterday that if he ate his breakfast he wouldn’t be so crabby before dinner because he was so hungry.

I need to get over to my class web site to get done what I can before work. Thanks for reading (and the support). Stay safe!
