Typical of Jennie, I bit off more than I could chew this week. I continued to add rocks and now...I'm dangerously close to the whole thing tipping over. In all fairness to me, not all of the rocks are my fault. I couldn't see that hiking Lily where I did on Saturday would result in something stuck up her nose. Vet appointment added to the plate to find it and remove it. In the meantime, listening to her constant sneezing and reverse sneezes is driving me up a wall. Then, we had a stray cat that is no more than bones take refuge under the neighbor's house. You know me, I can't just let it die. So I'm feeding it several small meals a day and shutting it in at night so a coyote doesn't make a small meal of it while I'm sleeping. Fingers crossed, I'll get it in a trap and vetted before Thursday. What will I do with it after the vet appointment? Um, not thinking that far ahead or those rocks are going to come crashing down.
I have the day off today, which is supposed to mean - windows open, candle burning, music on and rewriting. Did I mention coffee? Have I told my newest discovery? NO!?! Oh, if you love coffee, you have to find a Gloria Jean's Coffee Bean near you - or order it online! Chocolate Macademia Nut is apparently seasonal (who knew?) so you have to hurry. I've stocked up. It's worth getting out of bed for every morning. You must try it. If you lived close, I would make it for you. See, there I go adding another rock without thinking.
I'm starting to get anxious that I'm not going to have to write. That last rock being gently put on top? That's my rewrite. It might tip the balance and send the rocks crashing...onto my foot! Ouch! Or it might fit on there perfectly. I won't know until I try. We're going to see how many dishes I can keep spinning tomorrow. Or perhaps I'll take a few off - dusting, vacuuming, steaming the floors, laundry...one of the lower rocks. Or two. Or three.
It's all a balancing act at the moment. Let's see if this one last little pebble will tilt it or if it will hold.
How much is too much?
What about you - do you carefully balance out your week? Your list of things? Or are you one of those amazing no list people that I envy so much?
