Some days, I don't know if I am coming or going. I get overwhelmed with all the stuff I have to do. Sometimes, it's "stuff" I have brought on myself. Scheduling too much in one day and waiting until the last minute to get done what I need to do. Forgetting something on my grocery list and having to go back to the store before guests arrive. I get a little frantic, but I guess not enough, because I tend to repeat these trends.
Sometimes, the "stuff" is out of my control. Unexpected guests, plugged toilets (again!), cranky kids, cranky me.
Then comes the crash. I did it! I got it all done. I squeezed it all in and there was success. Now what? Shouldn't I be doing something? Surely I forgot something. Should I start getting ready for the next crazy day? Maybe if I prepare enough, I won't start running behind and hit panic mode. Or maybe I'll just go with it and have a day to do nothing. Hang out, go with the flow and not think about the next crazy day. Yep, that is exactly what I will do. Today you may find me lounging on the couch, or at the pool, or in my bed snoozing. If you can't find me there, take a look around the neighborhood. I may go for a walk, stop over at the neighbor's for a chat or hop on my bike. No matter how I look at it though, some days are just for doing nothing. At least until the next wave of "crazy" hits.
Oh, Just Shut Up and Lie Down Somewhere
