I have to say that life is slightly overwhelming this month. I have so much to prepare for. Being the only one to do things here and there I am getting my ass kicked.
Seems God has gave me so many titles this month, maybe this whole year. I am the woman of the house. I am the cook. I am the doctor. I am the nurse. I am the laundry mat. I am the farmer/gardener. I am the maid. I am the chauffeur. I am the receptionist. I am the dog walker/ animal caregiver. I am the muscle and the mouth.... etc.
But the one thing I am not getting enough of is time. I cannot sit in a waiting room for hours and hours and accomplish anything at home. With that being said I am really struggling to get my home in order and keep the vegetable garden going and other everyday things that has to be done.
On the days I do not have to be sitting in the waiting rooms I am mowing grass and planting veggies.
I need a routine but its impossible to make one. However, I have been relaxing a couple hours in the morning while I do laundry by writing online. I catch a small window to wash up the dirty dishes after cooking most all the meals, every few minutes I can use I can make a huge difference.
The closet was one of my monthly goals to get finished, I did get out a couple tubs of important papers and got those together and discarded many receipts that are not needed, but while its sunny outside I need to get the mowing done so if need be I can let it go for two weeks so I tend to put the closet off, maybe till a rainy day.
I know God only gives us what we can handle, but I am sure its up to me on how to get it done.
Right now I am overwhelmed with work, so I should write a list and check off what is needed to be done first and what can wait.
How is your minimal life?
