Too much work and too little progress. That's what I am feeling right now. I am slipping behind in my chores. The counter is cluttered, the chair is filling with unopened mail, I have 3 boxes of clothes from my sister that I haven't had a chance to sort though. My life feels unorganized and it is causing me stress. I am exchanging my time for money and the money doesn't seem worth it right now. Oh, sure, I will be happy with the money once the job is finished and all of my paychecks are cashed but right now I am living in disarray and I will be very glad when I have some time for myself again.
I did manage to try on half a dozen pair of hand-me-down jeans and found one that is my new favorite pair. And she gave me a fuzzy hoody jacket which will be my every day office "sweater" from now on. You know, the one you wear at the office when the AC is too high or the heat is too low? It is nice to have some new-to-me clothes for my wardrobe.
And for those of you wondering how my other sister is doing, she is home from the hospital and on bed rest and antibiotics. I am sure her kids are thrilled she is back home. Hopefully they will all be well soon. I'm going to visit them for Thanksgiving but I don't think I'll be able to get the swine flu vaccine before I go. They cancelled the clinic this week for our county because they ran out. At least I can still get the regular flu vaccine...as soon as I get some free time.
