Just one more thing

… and one more, and one more, and …

Is it just me? I keep taking on little things at random intervals, and that works great for a week or two, but then these other little things land, and suddenly I’m needing more sleep so I’m clear-headed enough for everything, but I’m not sure how to get more in my schedule. Yeah, maybe that’s just me. And it’s a recent thing, too — used to be I’d skip sleep to try to get everything done,forgetting about diminishing returns.

Anyway, only 152 words today, but also some thoughts for further down the series, so that’s good.

Random things from today:

Saw the new building that my husband’s department got moved to.

Made a simple strawberry ice cream with the girl. (Whip 2 cups heavy cream with 1 can sweetened condensed milk. Fold in 2 cups mashed strawberries and some pink food coloring. Stick it in the freezer.)

Made the okonomiyaki again. Pickled ginger is a good addition. As is bacon.

  1. Mmm…bacon.

    Good words! Pretty building.

    • Thanks!

      Building is pretty inside, too, but our daughter checked all the chairs and couches in the common spaces and pronounced them much too hard. 😉

  2. Yeah. Those little things add up. I’m trying to figure out how to avoid those too. Perhaps a spreadsheet with all the tasks? I need to figure something out so I can say no once in awhile.

    • One of the things I’ve noticed is even if I think I have everything accounted for, random commitments I made in the past with an uncertain due date tend to show up at the most awkward possible moment. But then if I try to make sure I have breathing room, everything falls through and I wind up stressed because I don’t have paying work in addition to the writing.

      I’ve considered a bullet journal. Mostly, I try to write things down everywhere and hope I see the notes. 😉

      Let me know what you try and how it works for you!
