The To-Do List

I’m falling behind on here, and I know it. I’m exhausted. I’ve got too much on my to-do list at all times. Sometimes, when I get a rare moment to sprawl out on the couch and open Facebook, I think about my computer and how the blog goes untouched.

And that’s pretty much all I have the energy to do: think about it.

In the end, I actually think I’m making healthy choices for me and my sanity (contrary to what I’m indicating above). I’m listening to my head and my body and taking time to actually rest instead of pushing through and getting more done. Feels kinda good, actually.

Wanna see my list of things to write about?

  1. A post about our recent cross-Midwest drive. I actually started a draft of it on Sunday night, I think, figuring I’d have time over one of my lunch hours to finish it. Hee. Nope.  That will be coming the soonest.
  2. A post about our visit with family while we were in Illinois. And related post to how we need a much more substantial backyard down here. And also how my son has a steely tolerance for chigger bites that he did NOT inherit from his mother. (“What, those red bumps? Those are supposed to be bothersome and itchy? Huh.”)
  3. Another related post about how I am not able to post ALL the pictures from our visit to Illinois because I apparently forgot everything I know about software angriness that follows updates and decided to just… run all the updates that WordPress suggested, thereby breaking my photo albums page. Again. (And breaking my ability to post from my iPad, as the app no longer works with the new versions of software…) Don’t worry, I had a backup option for the photos that is, I think, more robust and less bratty than what I used to have that I found when I redesigned the site. I’ll get that going, oh, I’m not going to lie to you. It’s going to take a miracle, but I’m trying!
  4. A post about our anniversary and how we chucked all sense out the window and went to a Collective Soul concert on a Sunday night. Very fun. But standing in General Admission always makes me feel WAY older than I am. Even though Andy and I couldn’t for sure spot another couple younger than us (it was Collective Soul, after all). I’m basing the oldness purely on how much I wanted to whine prior to the concert starting. :)
  5. A post about how our beloved worship leader is leaving our church to pastor at another far, far away in TWO WEEKS. Okay, it’s only a couple hours away, but he and his wife have to move, and we have to fill his position somehow. I am sad about this, but am dutifully speaking out loud all the reasons this will be a good thing like everybody else seems to be. I’m selfish, though, so there.
  6.  A post about how Graham started swim lessons this week and how they’re exhausting us both but absolutely delighting at least one of us. (Okay, probably both of us, but definitely not for the same reasons.)
  7. A post about one more thing that I need to talk to my dear husband about before writing, because we need to align on posts such as these before they go out.

Now would be a good time to remind me that Twitter isn’t broken and that, if I’d just update the Daily Catch every once in awhile, you all would [likely] be even somewhat satisfied.

Alrighty – so who’s going to get on that ‘extra hours in the day’ thing? Hmm?
