If there’s one thing that irritates me it’s being slowed down. I mean, I like to relax and can mindlessly watch tv or sip coffee on the deck in the morning happily. (Oh how happily I would sip coffee on the deck in the morning…if spring would just get here!) I’m not a workaholic by any means, or at least I don’t consider myself to be. I am busy, however, and have a lot of irons in the fire and a lot of projects I want to be working on. And when life slows me down, though I know there’s probably some reason for it (because I believe there’s a reason for everything), I get frustrated. Especially when that slow-down means that instead of sharing a fun organizing idea or DIY project I have to tell you that I was too busy to get anything done. (Hangs head in shame.)
This week has not been very conducive to doing projects, that’s for sure! I am finally 100% past the bug I had early in the week, but that put me out of commission for two full days (plus a third day of being extra tired)…days that I had planned to get a lot done. (Isn’t that how it goes?) My husband’s been out-of-town for a business conference (if you can call staying in Vegas and getting to see Motley Crüe and Journey business), so I’ve had the single-parent gig on top of being sick and my normal daycare work day, which I resumed on Tuesday. Since I was too sick to get groceries sooner, Faith and I had to add that errand in last night. Throw in bill-paying and the normal daily stuff, and that would be why I have to-do’s and projects ready to be done all over my desk and my kitchen! To make matters worse, it just occurred to me that our tax appointment is Saturday! Eek! Despite the fact that I’ve had my tax stuff in a tote bag right by the couch so the first chance I get to just turn the TV on and organize it all I could do so, there it still sits: Unorganized, unrecorded, and undone. So guess what I’ll be doing for the next few days?!!
I started getting my new tax binder set up and labeled, and if I could spare the half hour or so it would take to finish it, I’d do so today and share it. But I really don’t want to have to postpone our tax appointment, so I’m going to bust tail to get everything ready.

I did get one mini-project done while my daycare girls played Play-Doh today and it has to do with the big secret surprise I mentioned here. I’m so excited and can’t wait to share, but will hold off for just a little while yet. No, I’m not pregnant, in fact it doesn’t have to do directly with me at all. But it’s a situation that’s so close to my heart, and there will be some fun blog posts related to it! Stay tuned…!!!
Now, off to do my taxes…
