Busyness seems to be an ongoing part of life. There is always something else waiting to be done. There is always another place to go. Take this weekend for example:
Tonight there is a fun event at church for young married couples and singles that I’m looking forward to. There will be babysitting (hopefully the babysitters will remember!) and then the adults get to have a fun event for themselves for a change. I think we’re going to be playing blow darts with Nerf blow dart guns. Most likely we’ll find time to eat as well (what’s a church fellowship without food?) It’s really a fun time!
Tomorrow I have a party to do. Being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Southern York County provides me with a way to get out and about and meet new people. I am going to be in Brogue, PA tomorrow. If you note the card, it is the one everyone will get to make and take home with them. I will also be demonstrating a scrapbook page and another card, quite possibly a Christmas card. I still have to find the time sometime today to decide exactly what I will be presenting at this particular party. The time I spend on my stamping tends to be some of my favorite time in the day. I greatly enjoy creating and sharing it with others.
Sunday we’ll be back to church in the morning and evening and then my sister-in-law will come on Monday to stay for a couple days. It seems like the whole month of October is going by at this pace! Every morning I wake up with tons to do and at night I go to bed with a list in my head of what I have to do the next day.
If only I could find a way to get things done a little easier with three children ages four and under. I’ve actually mentioned to my husband several times that it would be nice to have some X10 home automation items. Surely they would make it a bit easier to get things done. If I could have an HR12A PalmPad Remote Control I could turn off those light switches the boys leave on without having to leave the work I am doing. It seems like when I have to get from working just to do something little, I always end up having to do lots of little things before I can get back to the original job.
There have to be some ways to get myself a little more organized and productive. I think perhaps I need to visit the Fly Lady again and start actually using the methods she teaches for being more productive. The Fly Lady gives so many tips and ideas and actually sets a schedule for getting things done that sounds easy to follow – note that I say “sounds”. That’s because I’ve never actually tried it yet. I think I need to head there right now and give it a try. What can it hurt?
