Happy Tuesday! I have my afternoon coffee with a little extra sumpin-sumpin and I have my fuzzy slippers on.
Why… Please see below
Today is Coffee Chat with my good friend Rory! Click on this link first. Time Out for Mom
Today’s topic – “are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
I have completed the following today.
I went to work for 5 hours and left at 12 to pick up both kids and make it to our dental appointments with a new dentist which I am thrilled to report that EVERYONE is cavity free!!!
We do however, myself included need to do a bit better on the brushing front. I am really good about brushing in the morning because I have coffee and NO ONE wants to smell that including me. I am really bad about the brushing before bed. It just becomes a lot of work to get back out of bed to go complete this 2 minute tasks because the idea of sleep has really already taken hold and I can feel my body letting go.
So I told my kids today when we left the dental office that if we needed to make this a family event at night to ensure everyone is brushing AND flossing we will. You can just imagine what they thought of this grand idea.
Anyway, after we got home I did the following :
Called a guy who turned out to be a kid (maybe not much older than my own son) to come paint and patch a whole in our garage door for cheap because we haven’t and NEED TO GET IT DONE.
Balanced the checkbook – which of course is pointless and depressing.
COMPLETED THIS BLOG ON TIME.
Here is what I haven’t done and need to.
Finish a card for the next card swap I am attending in two weeks.
Gone through the amazing family portraits we had taken some time ago, pick the favorites and order the prints and holiday cards. I seem to always wait until the last minute for this because, well I am just that way.
As for letting things go that I can’t seem to…
My back yard.
I have in my brain this imagery of what I want to see when I walk out in the back yard.
But this is more along the lines of what is reality but still not my yard. (some picture I found when I google’d “empty back yards”
I know that I have a blank canvas and it takes time to make art.
Not really sure what my hang up is only that I am stuck.
I will get there. Can’t say I will let it go, but I will get there.
Happy Tuesday night!
