Frustration

I have been very discouraged...

Somehow, the last few weeks have left me spinning around in circles, wondering what I have been doing... I have not been able to complete anything, read anything or keep anything clean... Plus my plants aren't watered...

Usually I follow a list to get things done... but my list has remained blank. I usually can accomplish an incredible amount of things in a day... Now I feel slightly off kilter... I feel like I am blocked... I need to figure out what is causing all these bumps in the road... but where do I start? My girlfriend Tamara would say... If you don't know where to start... Start anywhere... I guess that is what I need to do... But it all seems like too much...

Here is one of the questions that roll around in my head... "Is trying to go green suppose to be so hard?" "How do I get a simple life when things seem so complicated? "

At least tomorrow is another day :)
I am sorry I haven't had fun blogs... or interesting tid bits... there are little piles of ideas just waiting to be finished.... Good stuff is coming soon :)

I agree to start anywhere. But when you can't even do that-- I'm prone to getting overwhelmed then not doing anything.

I start small if I can get one thing accomplished completely I feel much better.

Going green is complicated. Sometimes you want to microwave pre-cooked and packaged rice for a side dish. Sometimes I want to take plastic bags at the grocery store. Some times I just want a big mac!

Good luck friend!

I get quickly overwhelmed when I don't have a list too. Sometimes I find it is best to write a list before I get out of bed, or before I leave work to go home. Otherwise, I get home or get out of bed and no matter what my intensions, if I don't have it written down, there are so many things vying for my attention (not the least of which my hubby,) that I just shut down and don't do ANY of them! It's easier for me to prioritize when I don't have the whole house sitting there staring me in the face!

I feel like this many days. And I think you have more children than I do. I'm impressed with all that you do accomplish! I had no idea you were going hard-core green. That sounds like an undertaking and one I'm not ready for. Good luck and dont' worry if the sewing projects pile up. You're right, tomorrow is another day. Creativity is always alive.

Shelly,
don't be too 'hard' to yourself! This is the wise advice I've got once from Ellen, one of my blogger friend, when I've got upset with my teenage boy. Sometimes it's good for our mind for not doing anything in schedule just to let ourselves take a deep breath...
I know it's quite hard and need extra energy for always take good care of your kids and your family, but you need good quality times too for yourself.
Take my advice now...
take a rest for your all routine works. I usually go to a book store and browsing there till I couldn't stand anymore or find a beauty salon just to do manicure-padicure, or even wash my hair and get gentle massage on my head. It always really really work for me. Spend much money once a while (for ourselves), is ok. Don't fell guilty.
So, go..go... :)
