When Life Hands You Chaos

Are you feeling neglected? I am so sorry. Sometimes life hands you more than you can handle, and you do the best you can to get through it. That’s what my life has been like the last couple of weeks.

You know I got water in my downstairs family room again.  We seem to do ok most of the time, but when the torrential downpours come, I’m in trouble. It took a good week for things to dry out. I was constantly repositioning the carpets and fans, and spraying lots of Lysol. Things are back together now, but the carpet has some more buckels in it. I can’t achieve perfection right now.

And to add to the chaos, my car started acting up last week. While I’ve gotten her to the point where she’s running better, she still acts up occassionally. She has some major problems, and I have to make some decisions here pretty soon.

Oh, and my license sticker expires tomorrow. I haven’t had the time to get over and take care of that.

And I’ve had to juggle my schedule, and my daughter’s interviews. She did get a job at Six Flags. Unfortunately, she doesn’t drive yet. It’s not her fault at all. Her father is always too tired to take her driving, and I have a 5 speed on it’s last legs. I’m trying to recruit friends and family to help her get some driving practice, but no one’s insurance covers under 25 year old drivers. I’m at my wits end.

I’m just now getting the confidence to build my own clientel at the spa. The money’s been getting better, but I’m still a long way from recovering, you know?

I’ve been busy loading all kinds of fast summer recipes at the Sane Super Woman Club. This stuff is a real life saver, let me tell you. Being able to whip up a great dinner in 20 – 30 minutes is a god send. So is having a great system to keep the house clean. If we had to eat crummy food, and come home to a dirty house on top of everything else, I would go insane!

Someone told me once that everyone experiences chaos right before their birthday, and my birthday is fast approching.  It does seem that I have a lot of stuff happen right around my birthday. Does this happen to you too?

Someone brought up the quote by Mother Theresa the other day. The one about ‘God will only give you as much as he thinks you can handle. I wish he didn’t trust me so much.’ Can you relate too?

Anyway, I’m still pluggin away. There’s a ton more stuff up at Sane Super Woman Club. If you haven’t grabbed your week free trial – go do it! How much is it worth to you to save a few hours a week? Wouldn’t that help you stay saner? It sure helps me!

Now, does anyone know of a website that tells you how to get the buckles out of your carpet?

    Carole, calm down. A calm mind conquers all. Then take one problem at a time to worry about. I know, this sounds crazy to you now, but this is what I learnt from you just a few years ago. Take it easy, Girl. This is just a minor glitch. You are blessed with so much. We all are. In memory of David Carradine (Grasshopper), my favorite show was where he was instructed to concentrate BETWEEN the leaves of the tree, not at the obvious leaves. Love you, stay true! – Carol

    Thanks Carol. Actually, tackling one problem at a time is just what I did – to a point. I guess you could say I did the best I could with each problem with the time and tools I have. I’m feeling a bit more in control today – except for the car. I hate car problems.

    Thanks for the love Carol! I really appreciate it.
