Recap and goals
Tuesday, August 27, 2019
I was so exhausted from our visitors that I haven't been taking care of myself very well this week. Yesterday, I was overwhelmed with anxiety and then later on frustration. I'm trying to restructure our chore system so that things will be completely done and I feel very much alone in my work despite the fact that five other people live here. I'm fighting the swirling emotions in my mind by making a list that prioritizes what is really important.
We need to renew visa's and that means a trip to the city. (bah humbug)
I need to get on my bike at least once a day.
I need to eat my fruits and veggies because they make me happy and healthy.
I need to mow the lawn because that makes me feel better about our tiny yard.
I need to make sure that our homeschool schedule is back on track.
I need to meal prep some easy and yummy snacks so that I have an alternative to kid food that is neither healthy nor terribly satisfying.
I need to work through this bitterness that has sprung up after spending time with my in laws. (They're not easy people but I don't think they're trying to hurt me and I need to work through how to deal with that.)
Oh and I have a cupcake and cake order that needs to be done and delivered by Friday.
This is the list that MUST be done. I need to remember to give myself grace and to rest even when my mind says that I don't have time.
