Hello, Everyone!

I hope this post finds you are all doing well.  

I’ve been fine, just very busy.  Since the car died back on 08/13, I’ve developed a busy life.  I’m not quite sure how that happened, but I’ve been going like the Energizer Rabbit on steroids lately.  

Last Thursday, my friends and I met at a different park for our “Anxiety Group.”  I wish I could remember the name of that park, it was fairly pleasant there.  However, I missed where we normally go. Then, my roommate and I went out to dinner.  Friday is a complete and utter blur to me.  Saturday, my roommate and I went shopping.  I was able to find a new carry-on suitcase for $40, which I was so delighted over.  It makes me feel like the trip to Florida to visit my mom more real to me.

Sunday, I was up at the butt-crack of dawn preparing my pasta salad for a BBQ  that one of the women in our anxiety group was throwing.  It was a fun-filled afternoon of swimming and stuffing our faces.  By the time we got home, I went straight up to my room to change out of the wet clothes and climbed into bed.

Monday morning/early afternoon came, and I woke up sore as all sin.  My knees and back throbbed so badly, I could barely stand up or even sit upright.  I figured it was from being in the pool the day before.  So, I just said the heck with it, and watched Netflix most of the day away, and napped.

It’s Wednesday, and I still feel worn down.  I truly believe that all of what has happened since March and straight through August just knocked me out.  Hell, when I review my calendar and my bullet journal for just August alone, so much changed in such a quick span of time, it’s a wonder I’m so damn tired. 

Tomorrow is already Thursday again, Anxiety Group.  I think the only thing I’m anxious about is the mere fact that I haven’t had the energy level to clean my room since the beginning of August.  My OCD is scrambled due to the level of messiness that is surrounding me.  I need to regain my motivation back!

I made a decision that after I posted the “Fri-Yay Frolic Time”  for this upcoming Friday, The weekend is going to be dedicated to cleaning and reorganizing all my files and closet. Friday is going to be “The Things to do List”  Write all the chores in which I want to get accomplished.  Spend the entire weekend attacking the list of things to do, then come Monday, 09/03/18, I should have my act together in order to read, write and enjoy blogging. 

This past week was just not in the cards for me to be productive in any way.  

Question:   Do you ever find yourself so overwhelmed by stuff going on in your life, that your daily routine seems to have derailed off the tracks?   What do you do to get back on track?

That’s it for today folks.  Hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Take Care & God Bless,

Beckie

  1. I am so glad to see you are doing so well! I am a crazy overly organized person. When I know there is a lot that “needs” to be done, I initial make a list of what I think “needs” to be done. Then I review my list and rate them on most important to least important. I just work on checking things off my list. I think organizing by having most important and most complicated first make things much easier because the hard to do things are almost impossible to get done if I wait. I wish you so much luck and I am so proud of you for doing so well!

      • You are making progress and everything will fall into place in time. I am so sorry you were becoming so depress. I guess it is easy to become depressed, but you have many people that care about you and we are all here for you always!!

      • This was just a really rough Summer. Everything did turn around for the better once the car died, as silly as that sounds. It was all those months leading up to it that really were taking a toll on me.
        I’m finally getting back on my feet, and my main goal is visiting my mom in November. It’s been over a year and a half since I last saw her and i know that once I do, I’ll feel much better.
        I’m almost caught up on my cleaning, and then it’s back to playing catch up with all my reading. In fact, that’s what I’m doing now. Taking a small break to catch up. 🙂

      • I agree with you that this summer has been so difficult! It has been horribly HOT everywhere, which causes people to feel bad and frustrated. Adding the stress from the white house didn’t help anyone either!
        Where does your mother live? I am so glad you are planning to go visit. Sometimes we all need family and then we feel much better. My mother unfortunately only adds stress to my mind, but I handle it the best I can.
        I am glad your cleaning is almost done. Now that I have a 3 day weekend I am planning to clean and organize my house. I have many spots on the carpet to clean where my poor cat vomited.
        Try enjoying yourself some and it might help you feel even better!

      • My Mom lives in West Palm Beach, Florida. Since this past Summer was almost non-existent to me… This will be like a little mini-Summer vacation to see her.
        Don’t overdo your weekend with all cleaning. You must take time for yourself, and chill out. Relax and enjoy the long weekend! 🙂
