My memory is shot…

I put 2 pop tarts in the microwave, and then got busy doing something else. I then spent a good two hours trying to figure out what I did with those pop tarts. I noticed that I put the wrapper in the trash can, and then realized I had placed them in the microwave. That was not a shining moment for me. I’m not old enough to be this forgetful.

Suffice it to say I am a very busy woman, and I am trying to juggle many things at once. First there is my family, my husband, two children, and then two grandchildren. Who knew that once our children were raised, there would still be big responsiblities involving RJ and I? I did not. I lived in this fantasy world where I imagined my children grown, and independent from us. Visits on holidays, and lots of time for communication. Well, fast forward to now and it is not that simple. We are entangled in their lives like never before. Not that that is a bad thing, just not what I expected. Then there is my job, which is more complicated than ever. Not only does the state expect more, the Littles have more difficult needs. It seems as though there are more children with developmental issues now, and those need to be addressed. The state and federal government are in and out of my home more than my inlaws are. No joke. Then there is my photography work. I have had to put a lot of that to the side, sadly. No time to venture out and take pics for the fun of it. The last portrait set I did was a pain, and I decided it is not worth it. So I put that on the back burner, and I hate to do that. I enjoy photography so. Oh well.

I received a MacBook Air for Christmas last year, and I still haven’t truly learned how to use it. I love it for videos, and viewing movies. I love the ease of viewing all of my different online activities, I just don’t love the way the files are laid out. I can’t move pictures around easily, in fact not at all. I have LOTS of pictures that are on this macbook that I don’t know how to access. It makes me sad, and angry. Now I have almost filled up the entire macbook, and I don’t know how to clean it up without losing the pics. I have an external hard drive to move them to, but it just doesn’t seem easy to do. Am I too old to learn new things? I have found myself looking at youtube videos on the macbook, but losing interest in what they are trying to teach me. Woe is me.

I feel overwhelmed by all that I am dealing with, and I that is not like me. I am an organized person, at least I tell myself that. I don’t like a lot of things left undone until they pile up into a huge pile that I then have to deal with. I’m not ready for Christmas, and still have items to order. Now I wonder if any of that will get here in time for Christmas. I have the babies taken care of, but not the adults. Goodness!

Anyone else feeling overwhelmed with life? Help!!

Oh well, time to jump off of here and get this party started. Happy Wednesday people!

peace 😀 shemelts

  1. Just reading your post, made me exhausted, yikes! :D. You are one busy lady! I am ready for Christmas and almost wish it were here right now….and gone, at the same time. I always love when the holidays roll around, but by the time the big day finally arrives….I’m ready for it to end. Sometimes I wish I could hibernate til Jan 2nd, ha!

    1. I’m taking some major time off for the holidays, so I am looking forward to just relaxing. I too would love to hibernate. until at least Jan. 30. Woot! Happy Christmas Dani. :d

  2. I think the lady needs to repioritize.

    Personally, I’ve “downsized” a lot of things in my life. Not because I don’t like friends and or family but because I’m just over crazy travel and “holiday” insanity. Not because I don’t need money but overtime is just a chunk out of life that the small change doesn’t fill. Not because there’s nothing good on TV, but just because there’s nothing good on TV that beats real life good…one life to a customer, so make it count!

    1. I totally downsized my life a few years ago. Let go of visiting with friends, and meeting for meals. Totally just spend my time with my family, my job, and my hobby of photography. I’m trying to just do me. I’m still very busy. Thankful for my good health at least. Thank you for your comment. 😀
