I feel like I'm juggling too many balls at the moment and can't seem to get a good handle on any one of them. I'm trying my best to keep up with my Etsy shop(s) and , list an item or two on Ebay and think of new ideas so that I don't get tired of making the same types of products. I'm also trying to get back into going to the gym and that leaves me extra tired and sore in the evenings. As if that weren't enough I'm really trying to go on a major kick to clear out some clutter (especially from my art studio). That seems a bit overwhelming so I've started with my kitchen and will work my way through the house up to the studio. Don't get me wrong my house is quite clean and clutter free but it's those hidden little junk drawers and the kitchen cupboards that collect stuff that is never used but sure does get dusty somehow. I started trying to clean out one drawer or one shelf most nights and run an extra load of rarely used dishes through the dishwasher to freshen them up. So far so good. As for going to the gym - I love it when I get there and feel so good when I do a class (well except for the fact that I can barely move for a day or two but that comes from having neglected going for so long and that will pass as I get used to using these muscles.). I'm just such an all or nothing person that if I don't' do everything perfectly I get really down on myself and usually just give up and do the "nothing" part. I'm trying to find that balance between doing some of what I want to do/need to do and the "all" or "nothing" part of me. Oh yes, I do have a day job so that takes a good part of my weekday hours. I'm up at 6 a.m. and (if I don't go to the gym) usually home by 5;30. I have to figure this out as I do want to do all of these things. I just don't want to be exhausted doing it. If anyone knows how to get more hours in the day please let me know. (The picture here has nothing to do with my post but of course I have to get in my shameless self promotion for whenever I can.)
