An impromptu day off

There is so much work lined up for me to do on my schedule, plus quite a bit to do to get our house cleaned out and ready to sell, but this has turned out to be an impromptu day off.

It all started with the kids being off from school today. Since we didn't have to get up early to get ready for school, we pretty much didn't bother getting up at all. When I finally did get up it was 10 a.m. with half the morning and some good working hours gone. I spent the rest of the morning drinking coffee, making sure all the work-related messages in my email inbox were tended to, and even checking a message board or two. Around 1 p.m. I finally got dressed and had my breakfast shake.

The girls just went down for a nap (or at least a rest period) so this would be a good time to get started.

The problem is, there's so much to do I don't quite know where to start. I have several phone interviews that need to be done as well as some stories that need to be written. To prepare for selling our house and moving, we still have most of the house to go through and sort all our 10 years worth of accumulated junk. On top of that, there is the normal laundry, cleaning, and meal preparation to be done.

It's looking like the remainder of this day would better be spent like the first part of it!

Ugh Michelle, I can so identify! I've been doing a double workload for several weeks, trying to keep up with 3 websites, 3 newsletters, 3 blogs, and on top of it all we are moving soon too, so I'm trying to go through 7 years of accumulated junk. LOL There MUST be an end in sight somewhere, hang in there. :-) I'm trying to tell myself that small bits of effort are better than none at all, otherwise I'll just get overwhelmed and not do anything.
