My husband and I had an appointment with our CPA to have our taxes prepared this afternoon. Although we own a business, I am employed full time as a teacher. I hold a service position to a group of which I am a member. I also am undergoing chiropractic treatment for spinal subluxation a couple of evenings a week. Additionally, I am assisting with a seminar and a summer camp (both require weekly meetings, daily tasks which must be completed, weekday phone calls, and weekend social media postings).
Tonight I bowed out of a meeting, cancelled an appointment with my chiropractor, and ordered pizza rather than cooking dinner. After having our taxes filed, we placed our pizza order, and I settled in to post grades in my online grade book. At around 10:30, I had to get up and move to avoid falling asleep in front of the computer. I folded some clothes, threw a load in the dryer, and started another load. (I ate some frozen yogurt too.) Then it dawned on me that I had not posted here yet today. I made an agreement to do it every day until April11 and I want to keep my word to myself.
Anyway, I say all that to say I push myself a lot. Some people are critical of this. They think I do too much. This may or may not be true. The truth is, I love to be busy. I just have to step back once in awhile and reevaluate what I am doing. And I am not willing to give up the things I Iove in order to fit the must-do’s into my schedule. So I will continue to push. I must if I want to have time for motorcycle riding, singing, crocheting that blanket for my soon-to-be granddaughter, writing this blog, working in my yard, exercising, reading, entertaining, going to that Bon Jovi concert Wednesday night with my hubby, Sunday afternoon lunches with the family, etc., etc., etc.
