Still much to do

I'm learning to prioritize. I've always done this to some degree, but right now, it is an absolute necessity. I am dealing with not slacking off so much, but it still creeps up from time to time. I have accepted the fact that my house will not be clean for a very long time. I will manage and do just as much as necessary to survive - like do laundry and dishes as needed, but the days of an immaculate house are far gone.

I still have several grades to catch up on for class, but I'm just not going to get to it tonight. I have to read at least one of my books as well as the journal entries for my class so I can comment on them. That itself is 69 pages. Then I have to write a post in response to the entries as well as three follow-ups. Not to mention that I have a book review coming up that I need to do this weekend. I've gotten two books from our library to read but haven't started either of them yet. It's due on the 10th, but I have to turn it in by the 7th since I'll be gone to convention next week from the 8th through the 11th. I'll be in Corpus Christi... woo hoo!

As you can see, I'm trying to still fit blogging in when I can for the five or six of you that still read. Oh.. and Marty does check out the blog from time to time. It thrills me when I check my stats and see the visitor from Key West in the wee hours of the morning. He'll never comment or even read the comments unless I tell him specifically that someone said something about him. But I like that he reads once in a while. Things are still fine in our relationship as we've defined it. I think that he's still pondering a lot of things and is waiting to see how things go when I visit before moving forward in any way. So I guess my visit could be good or bad. I'm hoping for the best of course. My friend Carol - the wonderful optimistic - says that she has a good feeling about the upcoming visit. I hope she is right. After all, she was right when she said several years ago shortly after Marty and I broke up that she didn't think that he was out of my life for good and that perhaps there was still a better plan for us. I know her prayers have been there in that respect and if anyone that I personally know is going have their prayers heard... it's Carol.

Well, time to get busy reading. Have a good night all and I'll catch up again in a few days probably.

I admire you so much for all that you do. I'm hoping that your trip to Key West is a happy one. That is one place I've always wanted to visit. Enjoy!

I wish I were as focused as you are. Perhaps I'd get far more done.

I truly hope the visit to Key West goes as you hope and that Carol is spot on.

Yeah, reading IS work. I'll dig through the historian's standard book about relics in medieval Europe tonight.

Well, you seem to be doing great. Major housework can wait. You and I are alike that way. I don't let a little dust bother me if there are more important things to get accomplished. I am glad you are doing well.

Hi Annabel,

I read your blog a lot, and I enjoy reading it. I am sure that you have a lot of readers who don't commment. I am one of them - until now! ;)
