sitting, but running all over the place....

MaryAnn Carroll
in my mind..... while having my third cup of coffee (maybe I shouldn't have that much?).... a glimpse into my brain.... it's like a 10 car pile up when the tow truck doesn't know which one to pull out first.....

-blog post
-helping son clean new house so he can move
-necklace design
-listing beads
-organizing (never gonna happen)
-taking picture of new beads
-ordering clothes from Kohls with coupon
-ordering dapping tool from Amazon with points
-what dapping tools are best
-watching a video on dapping
-sending text message
-waiting for phone to ring
-organizing (never gonna happen)
-new bins to shove everything into when company comes (no ones coming today- everything can stay put)
-the weekend in going by fast already
-maybe I need to get up and take some pictures
-organizing (never gonna happen)










 

I have no idea why those last three came out sideways.....AND.....

I am going to stop myself from what I would typically do, which would be to solve the problem.....

You don't care if they are sideways, right?

Back to coffee....

Oh, and I can now check one thing off that list....

Before I go, it's only fair to share this great video that I watched while trying to make a decision about buying a block.....

You definitely don't want to hear all the stuff that rattles around in my brain at any given moment! I can completely sympathize. There are not enough hours in a day to accomplish all that we need to get done or completed so, I just keep mentally beating myself up over it. Vicious cycle...

AND while aching to get back to my workbench, I was just complaining about how my 2-A-day hour long walks and showers rob me of time. I'm going to have to start getting up at dawn. ugh. I want to watch that video at some point today. ....maybe?

it's like a 10 car pile up when the tow truck doesn't know which one to pull out first..... Good description. <---

Ha!! Mary Ann what are you doing in my head?
I finally broke down and bought a portfolio at office depot and aplanning calendar to go in it. One step towards organization. And joined the gym Weds, PROMISING myself to make time to go. Now to tackle that mile long list of jewelry to-dos............ Oh, and never would have noticed sideways pics if you hadn't pointed them out. ;)

I am one of those people who organizes just about everything- I even pretty much enjoy doing it. Nonetheless, I still need to find time to do it so don't feel bad.

Artisan Beads Plus said...

Ha! I have gotten organized 1000 times in my life.... problem is... it NEVER lasts!!! I am having a tougher time now that I reintroduced myself to exercise and taking the time out to make a healthy dinner. I know those have to stay. My head gets sooooooo cluttered sometimes ;o)

so glad I am not the only one! My brain is all over the place, and it often shuts me down and keeps me from starting cause its hard to pick which is the priority.

Kim said...

My brain does that too, the more coffee I have the faster it goes. I am so glad I'm not the only one who does this: new bins to shove everything into when company comes (no ones coming today- everything can stay put)
The bad part is going through the bins after company leaves. I always resolve to never do it again, which lasts until the next time company comes. Oh well, at least I am consistent.

Goodness, that sounds like me most every day. I usually just have to write everything down and start crossing things off or I get overloaded thinking about all that STUFF! Best of luck that you got it sorted out. :)
