Do you ever have so many things racing around in your mind that it overheats and just shuts down? I think I'm there. I have been obsessing over the news recently. It's very distressing, but I can't bring myself to ignore it. I should be exercising. I should be sewing. I have a stash of fabric a mile high and can't think what to do with it. My closets need cleaning, my fridge needs organizing, my whole house needs to be put in order.
I have three or four unfinished projects on my sewing table. I don't seem to be able to concentrate enough to accomplish anything. Riana (on her blog) talked about Mercury in retrograde... could this be the problem?
The picture is our coffee table. It represents our house and my life... all cluttered and disorganized. Later today, I will pick up my three nieces from school. I will try to get them to do their homework, try to get them to eat something healthy, and get them to gymnastics class in time, equipped with leotards and the proper shoes. I will try to ignore their pleas to get stuff out of the damn vending machines in the lobby. (Sorry, swearing for emphasis.) I have to get myself together so I can be the responsible adult. Some days that comes naturally. It doesn't feel that natural today.
Do you have days like that? What do you do about them?
