Where's Carol? Fighting with "Stuff" That's Where

So, you might be wondering what I've been up to lately. I know it's been rather quiet around here, but that doesn't mean I'm not up to some "stuff."

For starters, I have been fixing up my home a bit. Clearing out boxes, trying to clean out some stuff, getting things fixed like my garage door, my washing machine, my window blind that fell and broke. I've been tackling what could best be described as a "honey do" list, only, since I don't have a "honey" I'm doing it myself. Oh, I even got the car inspected too. And I went to the eye doctor. (I now were bifocals and am very happy I can see again.)

All of this "stuff" while wonderful to get done, has not left much time, space, energy, whatever for my art and photography. Yes, it's true, Snowflakes, Queen Flake has been busy tidying up things, getting things in order, getting setup so that I can then move forward.

I can't say it's been the best of times. I mean, I'm happy things are getting done but, man, does it feel like a chore! I *hate* doing this kind of stuff. Some days, especially, it seems like things are getting way worse before they can get any better, any better at all. But, like it or not, this kind of "stuff" needs to get done. I have a monster "To Do:" list and, I have to say, it feels a bit good whenever I can cross one thing, anything off of it. Anything at all, even like "water the plants" or, you know, "put up the laundry." Phew! Just another thing down and a huge, massive list of things waiting to get done.

No, I know too that I'm *so* looking forward to getting caught up. I know that, once everything is in order, so to speak, I'll really be able to fly. And, I have big plans for that time, believe me, I do. It's just that, well, for now anyway, I need to play catch-up on all of this stuff. I hope you'll understand.

Getting these massive things done, I must admit, feels pretty good too. It's de-stressing my life in oh so many ways. I know that, once things are in better order around here, I'll be a much happier camper (as they say.)

So now you know what's going on and I hope you'll understand. It's for the better, really it is (at least, it has been anyway, even on the days it seems like I'm not moving much at all. I can still spot a glimpse of progress. Things are, slowly but surely, coming together for me again.)

Until next time...
