Well I'm down to the wire on getting things ready and I feel like I'm no where closer than I was yesterday. Sure, I got the shopping finished up, some of the food in the camper, and the cucumbers pickled. But there was just so much running yesterday and for some reason I just woke up angry yesterday, so not nearly what I wanted to accomplish got done.
So, today is going to be a busy one. In a little bit I'm heading out to the camper and getting that started. But before that I need to make some tea, start the laundry, and a load in the dish washer, then gather up the frozen food items and get that going before I really delve into the camper.
It's not that bad out there, but there is some vacuuming and sweeping and mopping, and making the beds, and then preparing everything for travel. Then follow my numerous lists of getting things put out there from the house and getting the potato salad whipped up and...
Oh the list goes on and on and on...
Then of course I need to put the house back in order from where I've destroyed room after room to get things out and get things ready for this big event.
No rest for the wicked they say, and boy is that true.
I've already put the tea on to boil, loaded the dish washer, and cleaned up the kitchen, so I guess you could say I do have a jump on this thing called prepping. My lists have been made for more than a week now :) So yet another thing that is done for the prep work :) Yeah, I'm desperate here to find the little things to make this not seem so overwhelming.
Yesterday I just woke up angry. No reason, I just did. All day I couldn't shake it. Believe me I tried. I even put myself down for a nap because I thought that would help. Nope it didn't. Maybe that's just how it is when you're tired of dealing with people for awhile and you have to go deal with people. Yeah, I hate shopping. In fact, I despise it. I ended up in six stores yesterday before I called it a day. So yeah, maybe that played a part in my grumpiness????
I put up eight more quarts of pickles and four pints of dill spears, and a little half pint just because :) They had to be done before heading out on this vacation because they wouldn't be here when I got back for sure. I have one cucumber left I'm taking with us on vacation to set out during meals.
I really need this getaway. I need to clear my head, look at the beauty created by Spirit, and breathe in the peace. This is what needs to happen in my life right now. It is not that I don't like my life. In fact, just the opposite, I love my life. However, there are just times when life seems to get the better of you and you need a break from all the insanity. That's where I'm at right now.
I need to put time and space between myself and the issues lingering in the balance. I need to allow myself a little freedom away from the world and just relax.
So, that's where I stand for the next twenty-four hours. I'm not sure I'll have signal where we're going so not sure how often I will be able to blog. Just know when I get home I'll tell you all about it :)
Well I better get things going around here.
Everyone have a lovely day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
