tied up...

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.  ~Confucius

This is sort of how I feel at the moment.

I am trying to keep my life simple.  Really I am.  But this week I am blessed with an overabundance of  things like work, friends who have birthdays at this time of year and want to party, the heat going out on what will be the coldest day of the next few weeks and dealing with the repair men, and trying to plan and execute the Office Holiday Extravaganza (it's not really, we just call it that), that are all conspiring against me.  Lots of things going on and that's not even including the impending holidays - I'll tackle those next week.   All I can do is breath.  And then breath again.

Hopefully all will be calm once again by tomorrow.  Keep your fingers crossed for me and I'll back here real soon!

This is how I'd like to feel!

And for those of you who don't know me in person...neither of these pictures are me!


  1. Looks pretty painful to me! Good luck!

  2. haha, welcome to the glorious month of december. i know the madness of this month having been born in it and several family members too. i'd like to skip the whole month but that is not possible so like you i will just breathe.


  3. RE: top photo.

    What's the female equivalent of "Blow your own horn"?

    Vacuum the carpet?

  4. Raina and Steve - I know, right? hahahaha!
    Janet - I've always felt sort of bad for those of you born in December. In all the rush and whirlwind of things to do, December babies sometimes get overlooked (which is why my December born friends are so determined to party! And why I try to accommodate their wishes!). I wish you a very happy birthday, anyway!

  5. Don't you always feel "if I can just get through this then life will settle down again"?
    Me too, but it never does. I guess this is our life.

    Be in the moment?

    xo Jane

  6. Yes, Jane, I do sometimes feel like that! Actually my life is pretty calm most of the time, but at the moment my boss is throwing a wrench into the works (imagine that!), so I guess I'll just have to ride it out, right? In the moment...yep.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Oh my GOSH, that first one? YIKES! I feel like that emotionally from time-to-time, and schedule-wise more than I like.

    Yes, things will settle down - for a minute!
