Tuesday Tidbits

Just another installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head …

Today marks the last 100 days of the year. Last year I set a couple of goals to finish the year strong but this year the day snuck up on me. I do have some things I’d like to get done by the end of the year but I haven’t really set up any goals. I do have my original goals for the year that I’m still sort of working on.

I need to get out and finish up some garden stuff – weeding, pruning, pulling out dead stuff and preparing beds for winter.  Can’t seem to get up the motivation or energy to do it even though I know I should get it done before it gets too cold.

Can’t believe that the first month of school is over already. I’ve gotten very little done and it is disappointing. Every September, I think I’m finally going to get started on my many projects and goals and yet it doesn’t seem to happen. Not sure what keeps me from getting started but it is definitely starting to be discouraging.

On a final note, am I the only one or has anything like this ever happened to you  and if it did,  what did you do??

99 times you tell your teenager something and she doesn’t listen, the 100th time you forget to follow through and of course that’s the time she is listening;

you spend five minutes having a conversation with your hubby and less than 5 minutes later he says something that makes you realize either he wasn’t listening or he didn’t understand a word you said because he needs to have his hearing checked?

Another week has passed and I’m still in pretty much the same situation – garden needs work, taxes haven’t been done, fitness activities are not happening.

I’ve been trying to recover from a sudden cold/allergy. I woke up with a sore throat and then the next day I added congestion, fatigue and chills to the mix. It wasn’t as bad as when I had Lyme disease last summer but I was definitely down for the count for a few days. Hopefully I’ll get back some energy soon.

Should be working on the taxes or maybe updating my book list or reconciling several months of bank statements but I just can’t seem to muster up the mental energy.

Thanks for stopping by – I’ll try to do better next time.

How peaceful it is now that the first week of school is over and we are settling into our new routine. There will be some tweaking and fine-tuning to do but things are beginning to shape up and hopefully we will get off to a strong start this week.

I’m not ready to lose the slave labor(aka the kiddos) in the garden but I am savoring the silence and the solitude during the day. I have truly missed these hours alone with time to putter about, read, goof off on the computer and just be free to enjoy whatever calls to me. It  really a struggle for me when I don’t have that time by myself.

Was hoping to get out into the garden over the weekend but family obligations and the weather kept me away.  There is so much to do and I’ve been doing a little bit in an area and then moving onto the next space but I’m not going to get everything done before winter comes.  I’d like to get one or two areas completely done instead of just doing a bit in every area. The question is where to focus?? Need to give it some thought.

August was not a great month for fitness and I need to develop a better schedule/routine for the fall. I have some ideas but will need to wait to see if they will work. The pool is closed for maintenance this week but next week I’m going to try to do 2 afternoon sessions and see if they will work in my daily routine. Getting back to the routine of school bus walks should help with my step goal and I need to stick to my daily walk on the weekend as well.

Definitely need to get serious about taxes – our accountant got an extension and the deadline is coming up. I’ve had months to get it all together but I have not done it. I keep putting it off and now I really must do it. Ugh- why do I do this to myself?

Off to scour the freezer for dinner options for the week. Have a wonderful day.
