Progressing by Inches

Today, feeling totally overwhelmed as I do in the season of "audit" I began a list of what I had to do (at home, away from the office). Partly it's because all the things going on in my world, medical appointments, bag orders to fill, commitments to customers, to business client, to employer, the cats, my house, my charity knitting, myself? That's a load.

So today I had the last doctor appointment. I have a fasting lab tomorrow and then I'll just have PT for a bit - which swallows up time, itself, but fortunately, I see it as improving the available time once PT is finished...I still will feel as if I'm running 6 ways to Sunday, but at least I won't be ducking out of the office for an afternoon or a morning...

Most of these appointments have to do with maintenance stuff. The trick is to get them spaced out just right and when I think I have that done, someone has to change - usually the one I saw today. He has young children, and he's always surprised by the number of holidays they have...or they get sick, or there's a snow day, or whatever.

I won't get weird. I think it's admirable he's doing that duty! Insert my mother's voice here "Isn't that his wife's job?" Obviously we've come a long way...

So, dilated beyond belief (as usual) I came home with two pairs of sunglasses on, to gather the kitties towels and run a load of laundry, cooked dinner (which you can see over on Nana Sadie's Place, knitted on the Corrugator Red Scarf during the news, began working on another order from the cat show and...

vacuumed the upstairs.

I suddenly thought - wow. Lots to cross off my list!

And I'll be crossing a lot of things off the list this weekend - it's Columbus Day on Monday and that means I have 3 days in a row OFF.
I hope to sew a lot!
Have a Happy Friday!

I hope you get lots done! No weekends for me until after the 15th.

And such a lovely vacuumed rug.

Yay for a three day weekend! You are still just in the middle of it. Hope you get to feel relaxed and content by the end...there's a lot going on in your life. Of course, you would expect, I admire your doc for being a bigger part of his childrens' lives; a wise choice as they are young such a brief time and then the attachment is built from that investment in them.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
