Well, I didn’t mean to vlog and disappear like that!
I’ve spent the past week playing catch up on all the things that didn’t get done while I was away. I’m starting to think that I need to find a way to be comfortable in the realm of not caught up, because I am always falling short of grabbing the “all caught up” brass ring. Is that just a normal state of life, or do you find that you have actual leisure time where everything that needs to be done is just done and you can sit around reading, or watching tv, or go play mini-golf without everything else hanging over your head? Or do you have to push all the to dos aside from time to time to carve out a little space for some down time?
Last weekend, I had a blast at the Syracuse University Bookstore Book Fair at the Downtown Arts & Crafts Festival.

- I think Stella (and J) would have been REALLY upset if I came home with another dog (Argo would have loved her)
- I don’t think that’s how GSRCNY’s adoption process works
I just recently have learned the art of leaving a few things to be done, so I can have a little “me” time… only took me 17 years of motherhood to figure out how to do it! But I’m much better off because of it– the “to dos” will be there tomorrow, and in fact will multiply. The world won’t end if you don’t get it all done. :)
What a sweet pooch– thanks for sharing!
I have to make the conscious decision to let some things just be so that I can relax. I’ve discovered the hard way that there is no day in my life where everything is “done.” It’s a day and place that simply doesn’t exist for me. So I have a list of things that I call “done enough” that I tackle before adhering myself to the couch with books and/or Gilmore reruns :)

I’ve reached the state of being caught up maybe twice in my life. Then I was bored!
