What I should be doing

There are so many things that I should be doing. The most pressing thing is planning for school since we are starting on Monday. In an effort to be more efficient I am planning for the whole year before we start. My biggest weakness is not wanting to sit down every week or two and plan out lessons. My hope is that doing it ahead of time will see us getting things done on a more consistent basis. Of course as I start planning I start thinking of all the stuff I'd love to accomplish. It makes me want to just go back to bed because I know that we can only get so much done!

I should be sewing the rest of the curtains. I should be making Lorna some more clothes. I should really finish that suit for Malachi that I started all those months ago.

We've lived back in CA for 15 months now and owned this house for almost a year. I feel like we should be packing, it just doesn't seem right that we aren't moving again anytime soon. I should be trying to make this place even more comfortable. I should be going through the stuff we've moved and haven't used. I can't seem to make myself do any of this. I keep hoping my inability to make myself do things will pass but it's been a month and it's not getting any better.

I should be insisting that the property be cleaned up some more. We've made 3 trips to the dump and 1 to the scrap yard with stuff that was here when we moved in but it doesn't look much better. There is still stuff everywhere that needs to be cleaned up. I've come to the realization that I just don't care. Maybe when the weather gets better I'll be able to make myself start in again.

I can sooooo identify with this. I intended on posting my goals for the summer on my blog. It is now August and all I have accomplished is reading scores of romance novels. At least I won't be disappointed that I didn't reach my goals -- I didn't set any : )

Oh this is soooo my way of doing things! Have you read the title of my blog?!?!? LOL Right now I should be doing laundry as one child is out of undies. I should be finishing the school planning. I should be doing the dishes left from last night. I should be getting the sleeping ones up to eat breakfast. I should be getting ready to give the oldest two the last of their standardized tests. Yet I sit here drinking coffee and reading blogs and email. :-0
