messy.


A little corner of the garden...next to the cold frame turned compost bin...the piles happen outside, too. Dangit. I'm continuing to learn to just go with it.

I'm working two jobs today...this morning I'll be subbing at a local elementary school in the nurses office. Then this evening I'll close at the book store. Tomorrow, the same schedule. How I went from no jobs to two...? Not sure. But I'm grateful...the extra money is helpful. We've got a lot of extras this month...camps, sports, clothes for kids that grew overnight again. Skinny jeans that look more like capris aren't cute...on boys.

I work the first job at 10:30...I'll be done at 2:15. Then I have to make that stop at Costco that I still haven't done yet this week. I'll come home...figure out something for the guys to make themselves for dinner, maybe watch a little Oprah (yes...I will. I don't always agree with what she says. Matter of fact...I get so irritated with her more often than not, lately. But I've watched her since the beginning...will miss her when she's gone...so yes, I'm watching her until the end. Judge if you must.)...then head to the other job at 5:30.

I don't know how women who have to work two jobs do it. I really feel for them. And having to leave their kids home in the process? I know they're old enough...I know they can handle it...but just because you can ________, doesn't always mean you should __________. Fill in your own blanks.

I'm really distracted lately with work schedules...finances...time...life. I feel like my mind must look like that pile of gardening supplies. Messy. Probably worse as the things in my mind don't all make sense...or have a common theme. It's a big jumble...so I continue to remind myself to do one thing at a time. And I continue to break my days up into small manageable slots...one thing at a time. So far it's working out!

OK...off to start those "manageable slots"...don't want to be late!

what you just described this week is me. A little bit off. It's the weather though for me.

And, no judgement!! I do watch Oprah when it is appropriate. I will miss her show.

I know the "need some money" thing too. Really struggling this week with "what I want to be when I grow up".

this is probably way too much for a comment. Oh well, it feels good to tell someone :)
