Do you ever feel like life's just getting away from you? That there's so many things that you should be doing but you don't have the time or energy to do them?
I've been feeling a bit like this for weeks. Sure, the things that have to get done DO get done but other things just get put on the back-burner for me to forget about until I can no longer ignore them or they just go away. Well, a month ago I got a reminder which I could no longer ignore. My lovely dentist (and I say that totally without sarcasm because I really like her) sent me a damning note. I hadn't stepped into her surgery for over 2 years!! I was stricken with dental guilt. Because dental hygiene is next to godliness. (Well, it is a form of cleanliness)
So I made an appointment and yesterday I got a clean bill of health and a really clean set of gnashers.
But I wasn't finished there. Luke had managed to NOT hand in his band vest when he left high school and I've been living with HIS referred guilt. Plus he was awarded the perpetual percussion prize (say that ten times quickly) which needed to be returned so I bundled him into the car and we got that chore done too.
Then we went to the shops and did a little clothes shopping for him - not an easy task when you're 6'3" and skinny - paid my tax and had a catch up over coffee. When I started work at midday I felt so righteous and pretty caught up. It's almost as cathartic as cleaning out my wardrobe.
So still riding high on yesterday's efforts I finally made an appointment to see the optometrist. And then I'll have caught up on everything. It feels so good.
