A Large List To Tackle

I look around and there's a lot to be done, a lot to be fixed. But I feel good about this. I feel productive. I do little by little each time I get up to get a glass of water, each time I put the dishes away I wash a few, put them away. It's these little things that are making my life more easy to maintain. And I figured out how to balance two young children while out. And two dogs at home that have pent up energy.

I felt so accomplished at the grocery store. It's usually so frantic with the children and a race to see what the dogs did at home. Today, it was different. The baby was napping in the little papoose wrap, snuggled up and comfortable. Nothing could distrub her sleep, she was that comfortable. My almost four year old was sitting in the cart with a pen and paper scribbling down a list as I went along. A lot of doodles but she was very serious. I was impressed with her neat squiggles right on the lines. She's so helpful. My dogs...were pretty calm. They felt good when I left so they weren't anxious about me leaving.

There's a lot to be done. A lot of mess that's been neglected. But I finally feel confident enough to tackle it and get my deadlines done at the same time! Each day I progress with my work. I don't have anything bringing me down or getting in the way. I know I have to stop if responsibilites or someone I care about needs me. But I am finally...relieved. I feel a huge wieght off of my shoulders. I realize fully what is ahead of me and that I have the tools to cope with it when it gets tough!
