This Ain't for Sissies

It seems like I've just been busy lately. Busy spinning my wheels, that is.

I managed to hold a yard sale last week-end. That took a week to get ready for. I made what I wanted to, so I was happy. I didn't get rid of as much stuff as I wanted to, so much of it will be donated to Children's Hospital Thrift Shop. I still have what didn't sell taking up half of the garage. I can't get to the freezer with my car in there. Ugh!

With the heat, it's been hard to get outside to do any kind of yard maintenance. I desperately need to go out and do some deadheading of some flowers. At least I got some watering done this evening! I think I need to have some friends over and have a back yard clean-up party and feed everybody BBQ.

I feel a little overwhelmed at times. It seems like my list of stuff to get done is longer than my arm, and it gets longer every week. Even though the girls are in daycare, I feel like there's still not enough time in the day. I'm still trying to take care of myself, and sometimes I nap when they're not here. But I feel behind on a lot of stuff. Yet I'm the kind of person who hates someone coming in and cleaning my toilet. I'm probably being too hard on myself, anyway. To be fair, I DID get some studying done this week on top of having out-of-town company AND two appointments this week.

Jack was such a neat & tidy guy in most things. There was never any question about which desk was his and which was mine. It was easy when he was around and there were both of us to look after the kids and to keep up on things, including housework. It's totally different when it's just one person. So, like the title says, single parenthood & widowhood ain't for sissies. Just sayin'.
