I've also gotten behind in bookkeeping and computer work for my husband's Financial Planning business. One of my New Year's resolutions was to stay current on this and I'm so not there yet. Since I'm usually pretty organized, this unorganized portion of my life is starting to drive me crazy. And being that this is the money maker that makes it possible for me to do all the other things that I do, you would think this would be my first priority. I'll get there. It's not that much fun so I procrastinate on this job.
The one last thing bothering me right now is knowing that Mom and Dad are leaving for Florida on Saturday for two weeks. They need and deserve this break so I'm glad they're going, but because Grandma is in such poor health in the nursing home, I'm very nervous about them not being here. I'll be taking Mom's place as main visitor and care taker at the nursing home and I guess I'm just afraid.
So now that I've written out all my issues I feel better already. As you can see these are really all non-issues that now that I see it in front of me if feels like I'm worrying about abstract "what if's" and there is in reality nothing wrong. So ---- I need to quit worrying about things that haven't happened. I need to say "no" more often. I need to take more time for myself no matter what others need or want from me.
Oh, I feel much better now. I needed to take this time to organize my thoughts. OK, now I'm ready to move on. I'm going to go upstairs to my little studio, turn on Oprah, and make a pincushion.
I'm also looking forward to American Idol tonight. Love that show.
