I am feeling out of focus and out of control. Now this is not exactly new, but it has been intensified lately with DH working two jobs.
It seems like much of my life is at the whim of forces around me. I never know from one week to the next what DH schedule will be, what work I will be doing for the newspaper and what I should be doing for my children or my church job.
This is not a good season to be feeling so fuzzy. I have stacks and stacks of work to do, as does anyone in charge of the holiday for their family.
As an example:
My boss called Friday after more than a week of no contact and gave me a list of four stories to write this week. He wants two of them tomorrow.
Logan had a talk to write for church today.
We desperately needed haircuts for the boys, and DH had to go to work, so I needed to make sure he had a clean shirt.
At about 5 p.m. last night I threw some chicken in the crock pot to cook it for the enchiladas’ I was going to make for today’s dinner. DH came home after 11 p.m. and asked me what I planned to do with the chicken. Whoops. I can’t smell it cooking, so I forgot it was in there.
While we visited I cleaned out the refrigerator to make room for the crock pot. I put a leftover pork chop in a smaller bowl and talked to DH about his day.
Then I went to bed and left the crock pot full of chicken sitting on the kitchen counter.
Fortunately DH noticed it and asked me if I wanted to put it in the fridge.
Sure I do.
If anyone out there has ideas of how I can keep on task, I truly would appreciate the advice.
