I Am So Far Behind I Think I'm First

I remember the first time I went to a track meet and saw the runner way in the lead and all the others trailing at different paces behind. I commented on how the others would never catch up...After my 'friends' stopped laughing they explained that she was last not first. Well that is were I am right now.
This is just a small sampling of things to go into my Etsy shop that I have yet to do the final steps so I can open up.

The dogs waiting for me to walk them.

The Kale needing to be planted in the winter garden yet to be prepared. The thrifted 1972 sewing book full of ideas calling to be put to needle, thread and fabric.

Deer fencing and a total reinforcement of chicken yard put on hold after a rebellious lower back issue and Mr. B. being out of town for the weekend.
Enough of the complaining, I will start now to be positive and get busy with the projects.

One thing done...drinking station moved and all water containers removed so chicks won't fall in. I must remind myself of things accomplished.
Off I go now to check some things off my list. Have a good Monday.

Sherri, it looks like you have a great collection of items for your shop. I am excited for you!

I love your post title;) It is good to know that I am not the only one with something that needs to be done in every direction I look. One thing at a time! Don't be too hard on yourself; you have had a busy summer with family.

Sorry to hear about your back. And don't let the chickens give you too much grief!

Oh my, I see a couple of lovelies I'd like to get my hands on! Can't wait for the shop! Yes, remind yourself of things done. I am in the same boat these days, it keeps piling up. Ah well, the dishes are done and the bed is made so, that's something right? Best of luck with all your endeavors and do sit down for a cup of tea every now and again.

Heather, I agree with you, are being too hard on yourself! I know you would love to split yourself into more pieces to get more done, but you must give yourself credit where credit is due. You do such an awesome job of taking care of your two homes, Mr. B, all the animals, your kids/grandkids...and every other family member in between!
Make lists...even for small endeavors because it feels awesome to run a line through a completed matter the size. I know, I've done it!

Much Love,

Kami said...

Yes! Keep reminding yourself of things accomplished! I personally accomplished a fair amount of girl time with your adorable granddaughter today and that counts for something, right? =)

Looking forward to seeing that easy shop up and running! Hope you have better luck than I did!

Hope you get all your chores done!

Oooooooooo, shopping? When do you open???

The chickens are alive, the dogs are fed, and those projects have been waiting since 1972; another day or two won't matter. You get plenty done. We know. We watch.

Lori P said...
