I do still wish I had more time in my days. I’m scrambling to do all the things I’d like to do, but I’m trying not to get too stressed over stuff. Like the dishes left in the sink, and the vacuum cleaner that has been living in the corner of my family room for weeks now. Or the half-started Christmas decorating amidst the still present Fall stuff. It’s frustrating, to say the least, when I get my daily decorating blog filled with pictures of beautiful spaces in my email inbox. For a brief moment I wish I could send my puppy over to her very white and blue, freshly decorated for the holidays house, just out of spite. I want my house to look like that too…all in order and lovely to enter. I’m also jealous of the amazing food I see in my daily delivery of food blogs. I want to make delicious dishes too! Like…Christmas cookies! But then I remind myself that my focus is elsewhere. Domestic bliss isn’t my top priority right now, and that’s just going to have to be ok. As long as I’m able to limp along, keeping up with the messes and making slow attempts at being in the season, I’ll be fine. Today I bought an official Christmas tree (on clearance!) since the dog left the little one alone for 24 hours. Maybe I’ll get it decorated this week. Or next. So I’m plugging along…that ‘s a good thing.
