Brain clutter (why I've been m.i.a)

Like I have said before I enjoy organizing. 
Organizing things. The things in my house are organized.  
I can organize things, stuff, doo dads etc. till the cows come home 
and I'm pretty good at it if I do say so myself.  
What I can't seem to get organized is my time. 

I stink at time management.  

Even at the wise ole age of 32 ;-) 
I still think that I can cram a weeks worth of to-dos in one day! 
I'll admit I'm a procrastinator at times but
I also have poor judgment on how long things will take.  
And then you throw in the whole perfectionist thing and well...
it's not pretty.

A really nice lady I was chatting with at Joannes today summed it up perfectly, she said
"I've figured out that I am not as remarkable as I think I am."  
 So true, at least for me.
EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I think I can handle it
and EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I feel overwhelmed. 

It's a daily battle. 

For some reason this last week I've been losing.  I have not been good at multitasking or well any kind of tasking. I felt like I had a million things to do but didn't even know where to start!  
So I did a lot of time wasting because I felt so overwhelmed.

 I just needed to stop and gather my thoughts.
Instead of working on my blog I have been doing some fun things like making a ton of to do lists, balancing the checkbook, writing up a budget for the livingroom redo, organizing and purging, getting this magical doo dad (that will hopefully help me simplify and organize my life)
I know how to party, right?! Whoo Hoo!!

My brain is starting to feel less cluttered.  
I'm so glad I slowed down and took a step back instead of trying to do it all.  It's another step in the right direction towards having more balance in my life and cutting myself some slack.  

So today I feel victorious!

And tomorrow I will be back with a post about a really simple but makes a big statement party decoration.  

 Hope to see you then!

  1. I can totally relate. All I've done this week is blog... I've neglected everything else in my life that needs to get done. Now I feel like I'll never catch up. If you get this whole balance thing figured out, let me know. And if your new gadget is the trick, sign me up for one, too!


Connecting with people is one reason I love blogging. So bring on the comments and questions, they make my day! I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by and say "hello!"

I love to reply to all comments so if your email is not linked to your profile I send my comment to this noreply guy. And that makes us both sad. Thanks!
