I am overwhelmed today. My brain is swirling with all the things I need to do, should do, and want to do. Things like pay bills, do laundry, meetings for work and taxes. Plus the creative side is looking for a little outlet and my book is calling to be finished.
I hate it when I feel this way.
In computer terms, it’s called “thrashing.” When your CPU has so many requests for activities that it slices up tiny little bits of time to allocate to each request, but the slices of time are so small that nothing ever really gets accomplished. And so, the programs keep requesting time and the computer just kind of “hangs” because of all the requests.
Yeah, that’s how my brain feels.
I am almost stuck – which is the most important? where do I start?
THAT is the question.
I think, for me, I’m going to start with some tea and breakfast.
Maybe write everything down so that it is not swirling in my brain but is approachable as a checklist.
From there, well, we’ll see.
I really need two of me. But I am not sure I could stand another one of me running around, either. (and I’m pretty sure my family couldn’t either)
Dinner this week? Goodness, that is somewhere on that list… not totally sure yet.
I know we will have leftover spaghetti (left over from our new Sunday dinner tradition) and steak is on the menu tonight. Maybe some chicken fettuccine alfredo one night. Beyond that? I don’t know yet. We have a lot of leftovers to finish off, so I am thinking that may round out the week.
Food is the least of my concerns today.
