For a while, I've been getting up early before my son and husband are awake, to have time to myself and get things done (hooray!)
If I'm lucky, I get two or three hours (they are long sleepers!)
But sometimes my son wakes up early, and then I have an hour or less to do my work.
An out-of-control to-do list...
Like lots of people, I have many, many tasks I want to get done:
I’ve been making a concerted effort to take care of myself recently:
Monthly massages, physio for some post-pregnancy stomach issues, and planning an Indian head massage when they open after covid...
The blog post I wrote last week obviously hit a chord (which is funny, because I didn’t think it was one of my better ones. *Note to self: we are not always the best judges of our own work!)
I've been feeling overwhelmed recently. I'm sure many of you know that feeling ;)
I have so much to do, and so many to-do lists... it got to the point that even when I did have a few spare minutes, I didn't know where to start.
My two-year-old has recently got into doing jigsaw puzzles... he loves them!
I had to help him at first, but now he can do a few (small) puzzles on his own.
Every now and then, however, he'll struggle to fit a piece in, and he has a big old temper tantrum.
One of my clients has been working through a difficult issue this week, and we’ve been messaging back and forth.
We got her to a much better place (hooray!), with action steps to take. Her last message to me simply said:
“I appreciate you.”
I was staying with my in-laws last year, and my father-in-law’s phone was lying next to me on the table.
A message came through, and his phone buzzed loudly.
I looked over without thinking. And, as the phone wasn’t locked, I happened to see the message...
As I mentioned last week, I don't have a ton of time to myself right now.
I have a toddler, and my business, and we've just moved house - and I'm still looking for random things that disappeared in the move... :)
I haven’t written a blog post for a while. (Anyone else feel like they’re moving through mud with COVID?!)
We moved house a few weeks ago, and I underestimated how busy it would be. And how much stuff we have :)
I’ve had some other things going on as well...
