*The house is fairly clean.
*My garden has produced an exorbitant amount of herbs and lettuce, and the tomatoes are almost here!
*Visiting old friends and new friends and family within the next few days will create a lot of work, but lots of fun.
*I'm going to get my hair and nails done for the wedding/weekend-with-Brandon. Huzzah!
*I have a headache that won't go away. It's not really a migraine, but it's kind of a wrap-around headache that ebbs and flows throughout the day. I got it on Monday? Tuesday?
*Technology sucks. Because of it, people expect immediate replies to messages, emails, phone calls, etc. And when you don't, they assume the worst. It's hard because I only have so much time I can spend online, and obviously it's to write blog posts nobody reads. Meh.
*Anonymous comments about my "pushy" church make me cry. Literally.
*Whenever I publicly declare something, I end up failing. I'm not kidding. If I talk about losing weight and eating right, it's inevitable that I will eat badly and gain 10 pounds. Like I have. If I declare that I'm happy! Depression isn't so bad! Then I will end up completely depressed. Like today.
But worst of all, I made the declaration a few years back that I am a GOOD FRIEND. Well, dear reader, it ain't so. In the course of the last few years I have lost more friends than I can count, and most of it is due to my inability to take care of them. Don't get me wrong --I don't really care that I can't take care of them, I care that THEY care. I honestly do not have the time to focus on outward relationships when I have so much I need to invest inside my home. My children, my husband, and my immediate and extended family deserve my focus. Friendships are great, yes, but I cannot possibly make everyone happy.
And my life has proven that.
I don't mean to let people down, but I keep doing it left and right. Usually without realizing it, too. And inevitably it's connected to that dumb technology thing.
So, I guess I can't publicly declare anything anymore. It's weird, I know, but I'm not sure what else to do...
