The haunting of my brain.

It all started late. I was late, the kids were late and the dog would not get out of bed. The same thing happens every year. I make plans, lists and comments and still I am behind. Way behind. To behind to catch up to where I want to be.

I was having morning coffee with the boss and she said something that resonated with me. "why do we put such pressures on ourselves" You know what, I don't know. I know that I have an asperational view on life. Not for more money, fame or fortune but for a clean house, tidy cupboards, washed floors, meal plans and clean windows.

I have been spending more time inside my brain trying to work out how I can achieve these dream goals. All I can figure out is the crazy amount of work that I will have to do, then I get depressed, then I want to go to bed without brushing my teeth or letting the dogs out for a pee.

So, you ask, dear reader, what is she going to do? Will she go to bed or will she put on a load of laundry and drink a cup of tea?

The laundry won and so did the cup of tea and I will be staying up just that much longer to get a few little things done.

And let the dogs out.
