i am behind on life. housework, returning calls and e-mails, bible study, craft projects, editing photos, blogging.
my natural tendency is to retreat at times like this. i want to just ignore everything, which makes me get farther behind. oh the annoying tie of perfectionism and procrastination.
but i can not be superwoman. i need to get more sleep. the pain from fibro is increasing each day and if i want to keep making it up and down the stairs, i will go to sleep soon and stay behind. no way am i going to show you photos of my kitchen. or bathrooms. or living areas. or backyard.
what i did get accomplished today? i bathed and clothed my children, changed more than a few diapers, put on new bedsheets for the kiddos, did a load of laundry, made baby food, fed everyone (leftovers!), read a book (for fun), played and read with my littles, watched enzo practice his crawling, and put away a few things from the baby shower i helped throw yesterday. that's pretty good. tomorrow might be better. or maybe i will do even less. but my goal is not perfection, but excellence. and excellence looks different for each of us. so i will try to be excellently behind.
but, seriously, does anyone want to come over and fold my laundry? i think it might be breeding.
