Catching up..

Finally catching up on getting things done in the house. Little by little. Have started each morning by trying to organize mind. I think that is the most cluttered! Too many things to do, and no plan on getting any of them done. I've done well the past couple days. Started each day off by doing some exercising. I miss that the most since it is the time I really like to spend with the Lord and just talk with Him about all that is going on and how I need Him to give me the wisdom to handle each day to make good choices. I've also made a commitment with myself to read the bible in a year. I started that off well, and am sticking with it. I was able to finish making some snippet bags (yeah! another accomplishment) for Linda's shop yesterday AND I even put my sewing machine away and cleared off the table. I put the machine back into my wool room where I can't move and had to bring it downstairs just to use LOL. I'll get to that room soon!!! I also started the day before a challenge piece for an online group I belong too.
Each day I am feeling like I am getting something accomplished. Not as "fast" as I'd like to, but I'm getting some things done. As I complete something, it's nice to say "it's done"! And move on to the next. I feel if I can unclutter my mind, I will have a better chance at succeeding. It's like a huge ball of thread all tangled in there. I just kept piling up and piling up in my head what I want to do, what I need to do for now and what I want to do for the future. And you know what?? I got nowhere!! My house is all out of sorts right now, and I need to set better goals for that too. But.... can't do it all in one day. Little bits at a time, and I know I'll be heading forward instead of always feeling like i'm traveling on a dead end road.
Went to Linda's shop last night to do some hooking. Well, I didn't hook. I'm whipping my pomegranate rug. Yes, I finally started that! I got some done, and then the talking took over lol. So it was nice to just sit and chat with Pat and Linda. There were a few other girls there when I arrived, but they left shortly after. I was late in getting there when it started.
This morning, I've already written out some bills, and am in the process of deciding what is next on my to-do list. Again, my mind starts going a mile a minute and then I can't seem to put on the brakes. When that happens, everything is out of order and I feel like I get nothing done. Or if it does get done, i'm in an aggrivated state and it doesn't feel like an accomplishment.
I hear we are expecting some snow later tonight and tomorrow. Conflicting reports on how much, so I'll just wait and look out the window tomorrow to see what the total is lol. Can you ever rely on the weatherman??
I have heard from a few people that my blog was not visible for a bit. Seems something changed when I changed my background. They were seeing code and not everything was there. I have made some changes and am using a background from another site. I'm hoping it is fixed now. Please let me know if anything seems odd on your end, so I can try and fix it.
Off to think through and write down what I'd like to accomplish today, and then GET started...
Wishing you all a creative, productive weekend....

I know what you mean about getting things done. I am slow to start anything this month and this cold is whipping me right now and had drained all my energy and want to right out of me. I have set three goals for the month of Jan and yet to get even a single one done or started yet.

Hi Kathy,
I like the new background. Everything looks great!

When you start to feel like things are falling in on you just sit relax and meditate/focus on what's important for that moment, and it will get you back in line on what you need to get done. Hope this helps a little anyway.:o)

What version of the bible are you reading from? I think it would be kinda hard for me...since i have ADHD, maybe with a study bible i could do that! What are snippet bags?
Tell Linda to start a BLOG!!! :-)

I knew I wasn't the only one out there who was going through this! Thanks for your words everyone.
Jill, I just sent you an email with the link of back to the bible, and I'll send you a picture of the snippet bag I have.

Kathy - Oh you have a great start going - send some of your resolution my way - i'm a disaster with getting things started/done this week myself! No motivation for some reason!

Can I see a pic of your snippets bag too - pretty please?

An uncluttered mind?? What's that?????
Seriously... if you figure out how to clean house on your brain, let me know, will ya? You hit the nail on the head with that! It IS like a huge ball of jumbled up string! Holy cow. No wonder i can't hold a thought for longer than 2 minutes! LOLOL
My brain is on overdrive, and when that happens it tends to immobilize my body! Why is that?? Very frustrating!! But know you're not alone sweets!! xoxo

Oh gosh, and I thought it was only me who felt that wool dust had muddled all my brain thoughts! But isn't it exciting that we have activities and hobbies and families and homes and other things to keep our brains flying? There are so many who don't have anything to think about...they just watch TV. Although it's hard to have too many things on your's actually a wonderful blessing.
