....I am going to Jackson .... so ya better watch out !
LOL, I laugh every time I hear this song.
There is a little place just outside my Hometown of Southampton on the Great Lake Huron, called Jackson. You know, one of those little spots that never in a lifetime would make it on a map; don't blink you will miss it kind of places .... well when families used to come up to vacation in Southampton, I can remember two particular guys who my friends and I had totally convinced our very own Jackson was where Johnny Cash originated from ....LOL, we had them over the barrel for quite some time as I recall ! Harmless fun is always the best fun, is it not?
I am always busy ! I can't seem to get a "handle" on why I am always so dang busy? I suppose what happened all began over four years ago when I was unable to do much of anything. That first Summer I can remember spending it sitting out on the deck doing nothing but mostly crying with pain and frustration of not being able to do much of anything at that time.
I think things got so behind on me these past couple of years, with me just now beginning to start making a "dent" in how things used to be, but at a much slower pace. With not being able to do a lot for a couple of years, much got away from me, so much I was finding it extremely "overwhelming".
Also there was a life change adjustments with my Mother living with us for over 4 years, another with her moving out last June, and then Rob making a life change by purchasing his own Taxi Cab last Fall .... lots of, at times, "overwhelming" situations for me.
Surely the definition of being overwhelmed is my mind going 90 miles an hour.
At times I still get overwhelmed with my mind seemingly going 90 miles an hour, but the dent in what I am and have accomplished is so rewarding it sometimes takes the overwhelmed feeling down a bit. I think the biggest issue I have with myself (still), is realizing I physically can't go 90 miles a hour any more like I used to, so things take a little bit longer getting done then they used to, in turn this is why I am sure I feel so busy all the time !!! LOL
When thinking about all of this and putting it into perspective, I think I will keep on being busy, opposed to not being busy. When I reflect back on not being able to do hardly anything at one time and how "maddening" it was, unable to do a dang thing about it, I will keep how it is now.
What saying comes to mind? "Idle hands are the Devil's Workshop". There sure can't be any Devil around here, as my hands are usually never idle, and if they are idle, I am sure my mouth isn't .... LOL.
My hands were definitely NOT idle today, as I had stripped our bedding, mattress pad included, to all be washed. Since it was such a beautiful Springlike day out today, I had hung the comforter and mattress pad out on the line. Once the sheets were washed and ready to be hung out, I went out only to find both comforter and pad off the clothesline and on the dirty mucky ground, as nice it was but windy as well !!! Into the washer again with them. And the sheets? well let's say they didn't get hung out on any outside line today !
The last of the spare bedroom's "Goosey" border was removed today, with 1 1/2 walls completely washed down. Tomorrow the rest of the walls should be done washed as well. Just some "stuff" to be purchased to fill any holes or dents and the room should have the "green light" to be painted !
Yesterday I had sold two items on two different Swap & Sale Groups on Facebook. The one item was picked up today ....
After a Dinner of leftovers, with the dishes done up, Rob and I went downtown as we needed to order him a couple of "Crabby Cabbie" shirts with the logo ....
*Phew* 90 miles an hour !!!
I have yet another phone call to make tonight, before I call my "Crabby Cabbie", take the "pack" out for their last of the evening, and call it a night myself here, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
