My head is spinning! But what’s new? it just seems to be my daily routine. I feel like I’m just barely keeping my head above water, but I’ve gone under a bit too. I can’t believe it’s mid March already. I just was checking my Etsy shop, I’ve been busy with administrative tasks, but actually haven’t checked the shop.
So I log in and there’s an ad at the top of the page stating Etsy is going to have a new look and I can edit my page….ugh, not ready for the changes yet. I just refined a shop banner a month ago. Then I noticed 43 of my listings expired! Double Ugh, already? I had until March 16th or something like that….ohhhhh, wait, what the heck… it is March 16, what in the world, when did this happen? I’m going to blame it on Daylight Savings time…I lost more than an hour, I lost 2 weeks! I’m just kidding, I really don’t gripe too much about things, I’m not a “blame’ on something else type person!
I just haven’t stayed on top of things. I have added things into the mix (so I’ve taken on too much lately – I sometime do that and have to stop and think ok, what ALL am I really doing?). I have quite a few things going on right now besides just the day-to-day stuff…throw in a few “odd ends” my son just got a different car and a different job so that throws our home routine off a bit. My daughter has a birthday next week so I’m getting those plans together and I started attending a gospel doctrine class on Tuesday nights and, and, and…..
I realized I’m really just doing much more than I can handle right now and it takes time for everything! I signed up for a 5 week business seminar and got a lot out of just today’s lessons…things take “time”. Take Time. Ok, much of my time is getting directed to other areas of my life, but that’s ok. It’s ok. I will have a bit more free time here in about a month….I just got to hang in right now and be patient with the time all my stuff is taking.
I’m trying to reflect now on the few things I have accomplished and cheering myself on for getting some major tasks done! Woohooo….we got a room revamped! It was a mess…like the “junk drawer” it was a “junk room” with lots of old toys and just whatever thrown wherever. The room got entirely de-cluttered! Everything came out of the room except a daybed and a dresser! We (my husband and son and I) painted the entire room and then they helped me put a new desk up! And now I’m sitting at that new desk and I’ve got plans to make this my business office! It’s going to be SWEET!!!! I may just enjoy some naps on that daybed! Won’t that be nice when I can find a day to just nap. Yep, I missed “National Nap Day” too…so that’s also why I’m behind (hehehe)
About my business….well, it’s really slow right now, BUT that’s ok I have enough change going on in my life and I’m going to keep learning biz stuff and I need to get more organized and just take it all day by day. I don’t have lots of time right now to stress about anything. Bad stress would just hinder me and this busy-ness is a bit of good stress…it’s like the stress that gets things done! Pressure stress, but just got to keep in check a bit:)
Life is full of changes and I know that, I’m just feeling slightly behind, but really I’ll be ok and we really don’t “catch-up” in life we just manage day-to-day right? Who is all caught up on everything? Ok, maybe you are caught up, but guess what the next day you will have laundry or dishes to do…at least I hope you do!
No pics on this post…it’s just not in me tonight, but that’s ok. I wanted to post and share my changes and grow my story, it’s going to be fun to look back on this one (my future self knows that she is going to accomplish so much in the next 6 months!) Yep, changes are good they keep me on my toes!
If you read my post, it may have just been crazy and all over the place, but I feel better…I needed to get this out. It’s all good!
