So, the Bear was right, I was wrong.

He made a prediction last Saturday, the beginning of Spring Break, that I would be frustrated and exhausted by the end of the week.
Oh, he's only partly right.
But don't tell him I said that part!
I am exhausted, but not totally frustrated.
I'll not bore you with the details of what I did accomplish, though that would be the "healthier" approach for me to take.
See, I have this problem, yes, another one.
 I try to fit ten gallons of "stuff" in a five gallon bucket, as my husband refers to my "problem".
I get it from my father, he's the same way.
I have ten hours of daylight, so I plan a thousand chores!
Then when the day is done, I have trouble appreciating the things that were accomplished, because I was unable to complete all my tasks.
Is this a pessimistic attitude? Half full/half empty kinda thing? Hmmmm.
I hope not, because I think I'm actually rather optimistic for the most part.
But I like to get things done.
So, just to indulge myself at the end of my week off work, here are some of the things I didn't complete in relation to blogging:
  1. A picture of the Italian Cream Cake from my dad's birthday party, that went very well.
  2. The taxes, not related, but bothers me as April 15th approaches!
  3. An introduction of myself on my blog. I've never finished setting my page up!
  4. I didn't get to read all the blogs that I wanted to!
  5. I have no pictures for today, nor any of the events I have in mind to blog about.
So, I'm feeling better, as I reflect on all the accomplishments we did make.
Looking forward to a new day!


  1. This might not work for you, but what I do is after making my list, is go back to each item and estimate how long I think each task will take, then add a lot of padding to that number. It puts a reality check on the list and an appreciation of how much time/work a task really takes.

  2. That is a really interesting idea, listing all the things you didn't get to do! It basically becomes your "to do" list for the next day. Our spring break is just ending, I was too distracted with things I'm doing to spend the real quality time I want to with the kids. I don't usually do that, so I'm sort of kicking myself tonight.
