And I don’t mean logistically …. Things have been quiet on the snailmail, email and blogfront so what’s everyone been up to ?
I’ve had the flu over the last week and you know what happens when you’re lying around feeling sorry for yourself on all fronts …. You take an overview of your life checking to see how the scale is balanced, well at least I do ….
I have been resenting my living room setup and even more being ill lying here on the couch ….. So my mom came over and helped us rearrange the living room furniture, I love this but this raises new issues LOL … makes me want to change the colors, new lamps, curtains ( i want me some panels from ikea), new couch, new cupboards, accesoires etc. etc. even more but we have to do this one step at a time and I’m not a very patient person …..
My everlasting hate relationship with my backed up admin pile really got the better of me (now you may have noticed a pattern here if you’re a regular reader …..) bcause with all the moving into my scraproom, making RAKS (yes finally ….), giving new workshops, getting all the products uploaded it’s sort of gotten onto the backburner.
So i’ve decided to be stricter in how I spend my time on my 2 days off on weekdays. I love hanging out with friends and since I returned to work after the summer holiday and Colin started going to kindergarten I really haven’t been using these days for what I should have and that is for admin but have been hanging out with friends or doing a lot of shopping for the webshop (superfun !!). But this has consequences and after one month I’ve decided that if I don’t use these days more effectively I will start to resent MLS.
I want to spend more time enjoying the things around me and the webshop/site is taking up too much time bcause I am not using my time effectively. So by organizing my admin on my days of this will free up more time in the afternoons/evenings/weekends to spend more time with the boys, my friends and all my lovely scrapstuff. Easy choice right ?
So this is my attempt at getting a better balance on the scale … How is your balance doing ?
