It’s always the same isn’t it. You breathe out and believe you have the time to breathe in. I had a blesséd two weeks to amble and wind down. Then everything descends all at once; all hell is let loose. Why oh why did I dawdle along, I could have used that breathing space to spread out a tiny bit of the load? Truthfully, most, nearly all of the avalanche has been unexpected. How can you plan for that!
I am so fed up sitting at the computer. I have to just now, to get things done. I am fed up fitting things in around other people’s time limits and fitting in time to make a meal, fitting in time to keep pre-ordained personal appointments, fitting in time to do some, not all, of my daily living routines.
It’s at times like this, I want to escape, take a break completely away from it all. If I did though, I would have additional time pressures because the things I usually do would have to be compressed into a tight time scale as well. There’d also be a pile of stuff to deal with when I returned. Doh!
