A shift in routine results in chaos.. well, with me that is. Some days I feel like I've got it all under control, but these past few weeks seems like a jumbled up mess in my head.. well at least that's the way I process it.
This week the kids headed back to school on a Wednesday, only to be off Friday (Good Friday). I volunteered at Izzy's school on Thursday to a museum that I went to as a kid.. (pretty cool). The weekend came swiftly and it felt good to feel like "Spring Break" part two. The nice part is hubby was home all weekend. But what was supposed to be a nice relaxing break, never was.
One by one, things seemed to pile up (again, only in my head, everyone seems to be relaxed). My iMac went ka-put! Yup, just like that it wouldn't turn on! Luckily time machine was backing up by the hour.. but still, can you imagine my panic-attack? I've relied on my desktop for most things, work, personal, photos, family related things.. you name it.. And sure it was all backed up, but the idea that it wouldn't even turn on... sent this mom in a frenzy.
It didn't take me long to carry that thing to the mac specialists at the Apple Store.. where they diagnosed it and fixed it! I'm glad to say that "she" is back on my desk and all files have been transferred.
My poor Project Life is behind 3 weeks... (Again, this sends my mind thwarted and at a halt). So in my feeble attempt to catch up (mostly with tons of photos from Keri's visit) I stayed up all night and uploaded photos to the nearest Costco. It still sits on my desk.
Before I know it, it's Easter Sunday and we have planned a BBQ with the family and then some... So (again, I'm the only one in a tizzy because I feel like the house is not clean enough or organized enough to have that many people over). So in my race against time to get this house spic & span clean I've also decided to finally put up all these photos that have been laying around, wash both cars, deep clean the bathrooms, etc.. When really a light dusting and wiping would suffice.
Finally, it's Sunday.. and I'm sitting here at 11pm... thinking I really need to learn to "chill" and realize.. at the end of the day (week) it's all good.. everything turns out fine without the heightened anxiety I constantly feel. The kids had fun with their cousins, we had an amazing feast as usual, and what great company to watch the Season Finale of Walking Dead...
