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.
