Slippage

How is it possible for an entire week to slip by so quickly?  I can't even say it slipped by unnoticed but it just whizzed right by and left me gasping and wondering why I didn't get enough stuff done.

Work was good. I got almost all the things done I wanted to before I left for vacation.  I even got organizational stuff for my desk and got it reorganized.  I left a list for my student workers, changed the voice mail, out of office message and got the tasks done I needed to. 

Yesterday was supposed to be super productive.  We were supposed to get all these errands run - which we did - and the house completely cleaned and a whole list of other things.  My cleaning person got a good chunk of my house clean but still there is more to do.  Why is it housework is so time consuming?

This afternoon the girls fly in.  We have to pick them up.  Then from that point on we are booked.  It will be a very busy weekend and I'm stressing a little about how much is going on. 

Taking a step back from the chaos of the weekend, I cannot wait to see the girls.  It will be nice to have my whole family together.  I just hope we aren't so busy doing that we actually have time together to laugh and just be. 

Tomorrow is the big party.  Normally big events with lots of people make me nervous but this one isn't.  I'm just looking forward to being around the people who are important.  I am hoping for good weather so it can be more an outside event than an inside event. 

Ken has gotten so many projects done in the house.  They are bigger projects which we thought would take more time and money but they didn't.  I really like the changes in the house.  It makes me feel like we are claiming more of the house. 

On one hand I'm really glad that the week has slipped away since I'll get to see Virginia and Stephanie this afternoon.  On the other hand I'd like another day or two to get ready.  Isn't that always the case?

  2. Thank you and you are right on both... It was a great weekend and stressful in trying to balance everyone and get everything in. It was definitely a lot to cram into a few short days. It is always good to see my girls though.
