Saying No and fixing what I can…

Well I whined yesterday and realize there is only so much I can fix.  I can work on little tiny pieces and hopefully ‘the big stuff will work itself out in the wash’ as my Grams would say.

The first thing is ‘saying no’ and I started yesterday: 

     ‘No thank you, please don’t call.  I hope to be asleep at 11:30.’

     ‘I understand you would like everything in today so you can go on vacation, I can’t.  I will have it for you on   your return.’ 

     And ‘no, I’m not going to work on my one day off except to scan receipts.’

Instead I plan for my one day home - swimming, laundry, running with the dogs, swimming, cleaning some, playing with the dogs and swimming.  Hopefully during that cleaning I will find my small stash of British Pounds I have for entry fees.   Included in that day and Sunday, is eating well and taking care of my shoulder and back.  If I have a little time, I might watch a little of the Olympics while cuddling with my pooches.  And I will hopefully  get in a long swim on Sunday evening depending upon T-storms of course.

No, I don’ t plan to rush for anyone today, I will juggle but not rush.
