Don't Know If I'm Coming or Going

I think I'm going, but I'm not sure. At least, I'm preparing to go--I think. I'm trying to prepare myself to go, yeah yeah, that's it. My mind is racing with all the things I need to get done before we leave for spring break on Saturday. Can you see the squinty lines between my eyebrows? I'm getting a lot done but in such a discombobulated way, I don't know what to do next. I'm blaming it on my new--soon to be old--coffee routine.

Note to self: Must switch to tea tomorrow--tomorrow ok, tomorrow, yes, tomorrow.

I always do this. I make more work for myself than I need to. But you know the drill: housesitter coming to stay at house--must clean house, must make it relaxing and easy for single person to stay at house. (=more work than need be.)

Must pull summer things out from under all the winter things in the really cluttered closets-- for mom, the kid and the teenager, oh yea, and me--clean these things first, I'm sure. Pack for everyone--hub is on his own, maybe even teenager.

Note to self: Must change light in closet tomorrow--can't see. Have teenager change light--can't reach. Have hub change light--can't find teenager. Aw hell, just grab someone off the street to change the damn light, hub is gone.

And you see, this is how I'm going about my day. Really chaotic. I think--I do, I think--I do. No rhyme or reason. I really do need to make a list tonight. I don't know why I fight it, but I always do.

Note to self: Self, make LIST, please make list--and check off. Thank you.

Yesterday, I blew the few eggs that I have done this year. I've really not been in the right frame of mind for pysanky....and you HAVE to be in the mood to make pysanky. It's way too time consuming not to feel like doing it. The kid did better than me! That's good. Maybe it's he who will carry on the tradition, definitely NOT the teenager--sheesh!

In between sporadic other things, I even got the wax off. They are now ready to be shellacked. Joy. The smell of polyeurothane filling the nostrils. Lovely. I knew there was more than one reason I added the French doors to the study!

And here are some other little diddies I did today. Excuse me? Did someone say give the girl some more caffeine??

This is actually from yesterday--the start of the "Beach Pile." You should see it now, it's taking over the kitchen. If I think of something, I just throw it here.

And, yes, I know, I said I know, girly girly. They're in the guest room, ok? A young lady will be staying here and perhaps she can enjoy them. Lord knows I can't put them out, I'd never hear the end of it from all the "men." So, I pulled them from the way back of my armoire, blew off the dust and set them up in hopes that maybe someone can enjoy them this year!

And last, but not least:

Just kidding, LOL, the hub made this for Sunday supper yesterday. We ate out tonight--the hub is AWOL (traveling). You don't think I had enough energy to cook, did you? Please.

Rosa said...

Thanks everyone. I feel a little better today. I only had two (normal size) cups of Joe today. All is good.

Wow, that egg in the middle of that basket is absolutely amazing! Your lines are impeccable! It looks big, too... a goose egg? Super clear colors, too. Beautiful.

Nefertitichild: Noooo, that is NOT one of mine! I wish it were!! I purchased the larger goose pysanky (3). The rest, though, are mine. grin. You can tell the difference!
