Ending thoughts: At the beginning of the day, the three work tasks weren't a big enough goal because I was so, so far behind. At the end of the day, I am thankful to have completed the three work tasks in question rather than just fritter the day away on the Internet.
Today is a chore day, so that I can focus on work for the weekend and next week
*Take out compost, cover w/ dirt
*Clean kitchen (working on this now)
*Clean room (working on this now)
*Do 3 loads of laundry
*Buy a bucket
*Go grocery shopping
*Cook 1 week's worth of dinners and portion
*Deal w/ mail
*Do financial stuff
It has been a while since I have checked in, but I am doing so today. Need to focus on making four clients happy, and that is it! Problem is I have an appointment this afternoon and then I am meeting a friend for coffee. So my afternoon feels shot, and I procrastinated this morning. Need prayers/good thoughts over in my corner of the world!
And that is it--if I can make those four people happy, my day will be done (have to finish up some projects for them). This is not complicated. I CAN do this!
"What if there was a place that was safe enough where the worst of me
could be known and I would discover that I would be loved more, not
less, in the telling of it? ...Fresh trusting of love trumps old shame.

Back at work after a short Christmas vacation. I was very busy through Christmas Day, but the last two days I did absolutely nothing except cook dinner and do some laundry. Laundry, dinner, and dishes never end even when you are on vacation, amirite? I did get back into the exercise routine for the past few days, and my muscles are letting me know I had gotten too much out of shape over the holidays! Glad to be getting back into a normal routine.
I have a lot of work to catch up on, so I will make a todo list now and get started. I'll check back if I get stuck.
Happy New Year!
