Last week, I came down with that horrendous cold that's been making the rounds. I lost two days of work to it, which means I'm climbing out of the "to-do" list that has piled up. This wouldn't be so bad, but I've been climbing out of that "to-do" list since the end of January when I finished the quarterly reports and 1099s. The quarterly reports often eat up 2 weeks easily. Add the 1099s and you've got another week or so.
When I am "climbing out" of the abyss of my to-do list, other things are neglected. Sometimes, I feel a bit overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done. I just feel like a hamster on a wheel, although I hope my efforts are more effective than the hamster's.
Between homeschooling Lily, running two publishing houses, being a wife, and just trying to stay sane, it seems like an endless spin day and night. Is there a way off? I don't know. And if there was, would I want off?
Sometimes I think I'm addicted to the "I've got to do something" itis. If I don't have anything to do, then I don't know what to do with myself.
However, I think I might be okay with that. To be honest, I don't really know what I'd do if I were off the wheel, but at least I wouldn't feel like I was constantly climbing out.
So, yeah, I'm climbing out. Any tips?
