Trying to sort everything out: Christmas gifts, baby quilt, Fee's birthday advent stuff, house, doctor appointments (mine & Laddie's), Christmas get togethers, preparations for various events including new baby, household chores, errands, etc., etc.
Until yesterday, when I realized that the rash on Laddie's hand and arm might be shingles, I was pretty calm and relaxed about this Christmas season. Somehow the rash threw me into a loop of confusion and of feeling overwhelmed about everything. I've been attempting to gather my wits and give priority to certain activities, but have not yet settled down. Funny how one situation can toss all other activities into the air. I'm overwhelmed by sudden indecision about what I've already done and what I plan to do.
A cup of tea and a biscotti are in order. Then perhaps I can settle into meaningful activities. Relax. Some things will get done, but perhaps not perfectly or on time. Some things will not get done. Breathe. Who cares?
Actually, having just typed those words, a sudden realization:
for the most part...I am the only one who cares, and even I can admit that wanting to embroider a particular verse on the baby quilt is not really important in the scheme of things. My attitude is what is most important. Wow, that relieves a lot of tension right there. Onward!
