morning, um… early afternoon. Yeah, yeah I know I’m late, not that you mind, but some Monday’s are busier than others. This morning I was totally on the ball for house hold chores even getting laundry done before hubby left for work. Along with dishes, animals, mail and eBay stuff, etc. But I did not get around to writing this post up until now, it didn’t help that I was at a loss of topics to post about today.
Not a lot of bookish news. I broke the book buying ban and brought home the next Lynsay Sand’s release that I desperately want to sit down and read. Life has just gotten in the way this weekend, mainly too much noise and husband wanting to watch movies and thrift shop. I also keep visiting two books I have sitting in a Barnes and Noble shopping basket that I keep debating over hitting that check-out button. They are having a sale right now two hardcover books for $30 with free shipping. One book I know I will buy, the other one would be nice to have but I don’t have to have it. Still it is a good deal and I have until the 25th to make up my mind. It doesn’t help that I paid propane and property tax last week and have an income tax appointment next Friday. Still it is only $30 so it probably won’t break the bank just make me feel guilty.
As to the topic this week, organization, I have found myself feeling a little overwhelmed lately. Basically I’m “volunteering” for too much crap and I’m spreading myself a little thin. I have the blog (my hobby), summer reading program at work(not a volunteer situation, but still a responsibility), the creative arts with the fair, our Ebay sales, being a Bernie delegate, the BEA trip, possibly chairing a position for the local Democrats, and all the chores that need to be done at home. I’m constantly feeling like I should be doing something or am falling behind while wasting too much time online. I need to get organized and find a way to keep track of all my responsibilities. I’m thinking a different notebook for each area where I make to-do lists that I go over each day to see what needs to be done and what can wait. Some of these areas overlap or don’t really need a notebook (Creative Art at the fair) so I can probably get away with one for home, blog, work, and democrats. Ebay is technically my hubby’s domain as I just agreed to “help” not run it, he can get his own notebook to keep track of what needs to be done.
Well I bet that was super boring, but it helped me work some stuff out little gold star to those still reading. Thanks for listening and have a great week of reading everyone!
