Taking a break from my final day of the Productivity Series because I’m short on time this morning!
Ironically, during this entire week that I’ve been writing about productivity, my brain has been completely distracted. Ha.
Remember these toys?
Well, I’m pretty sure this is what the inside of my head looked like all week. I just COULD NOT CONCENTRATE to save my life.
I literally felt like random thoughts kept leaping across my brain. One would land and another would take off. UGH.
A few of these thoughts….
*worry/ anticipation about news of the kids transitioning back to virtual school for the next ~1 1/2 months. How will it go this time??
*thoughts about our county’s new emergency order restricting all indoor gatherings of any kind, meaning that basically ALL of the kids’ extracurriculars are cancelled again. Bummer.
*feelings of sadness for Asher because the State swim meet he qualified for and was excited to attend in December (in a smaller/ “virtual” setting from the original big meet) is now cancelled, as well as ALL meets for the foreseeable future.
*stress in general about covid- the new restrictions, cases on the rise, concern for everyone, what this means for us all/seeing family, staying healthy, when this will ever get better, etc…
*random thoughts about the upcoming holidays, Asher’s birthday…what will these end up looking like? What the heck am I going to buy him for his birthday? Gosh, I’d better hurry and start looking at doing some online shopping as shipping times may be delayed….
Several times this week I sat at my desk, closed my eyes and said, “STOP” in my head, willing the endless chatter to just SHUT UP.
Gotta run. Here’s a a couple favorite peaceful moments from this week, though!
I put up a little Christmas tree outside by the hot tub and the boys had hot chocolate in it the other night. 😊
I crawled in bed a little early the other night and read for a while, with a Christmas Hallmark movie on in the background very quietly. Just enough to glance up and look at some pretty scenes now and then.
I am grateful for tomatillos, because they turn into salsa verde, and I love salsa verde (had it last night so it’s on the brain 🙂 )
