C: Harried

hectic This is just the time for V and me to feel harried, I guess.  Her last post was about the same theme as this one: too much to do!

I’ve been blessed with company over the past couple of weeks, and my business is so hectic that I have been feeling like the old woman who lived in the shoe with so many kids tugging on her all the time.

I am beginning to liken myself to this:


Yes, my job is like herding cats.  For one thing, there are never enough hours in the day.  For another, my clients have lately been tending to veer out of the herd on their own—not safe—and have to be “rounded up,” back under control.  It just seems like craziness is more rampant lately.

I guess this is either good or bad, depending on your point of view: good for my business but bad for those folks who need a divorce lawyer!

Even V and I have not had time to get together, and I miss it.  Hoping to rectify that soon and being able to post more frequently.

Happy tails, er, I mean “Happy Trails!”  C.

V: Sometimes Life Just Gets in the Way

Tyranny of the urgent 

Sometimes life just gets in the way of what I want to do.  Like post here more often!  Everything’s been so crazy lately that I find very little time to even visit the blogging neighborhood anymore, which I’ve discovered is a major way I chill and relax!
Years ago “C” gave me a little book about the Tyranny of the Urgent.  I need to reread it!  Seriously, it would make a great post—when I have time of course!  Sometimes we get so caught up in the “urgent”, we lose sight of the “important”—or what we are called to do.  Believe it or not every worthy endeavor though it is fine in and of itself,  may NOT be what “we”  or “I” am called to do.  It gives me pause to consider when my family needs me so much and my energies are so divided due a job I think I need financially.   Just being honest here! 

 ***UPDATE:  Eldest daughter has been hospitalized for a few days.  Your prayers would be much appreciated.

Eldest daughter is ill  and I can’t go into detail now—She has chronic conditions complicated by pregnancy.  We expect she will get better soon, but she has children she homeschools and they are all involved in extracurricular activities such as guitar lessons, homeschool groups, etc.  I’m trying to help out with meals, driving to guitar lessons, etc., but I’m also helping youngest daughter who is a single mother with a two year old son.  I pick him up  3-4 days a week and keep him until she gets home about 6:30.  I’m TIRED people!!!  Youngest daughter and her little one have been slowly moving in with us the past few weeks, but  they will be here full time beginning tonight.   The other day when I picked “J” up from daycare after work, he refused to walk to the car and when I finally got him there he arched his back screaming his head off.  I could NOT get him into that car seat!  Suddenly I had a flashback to my two year old son from almost 27 years ago behaving the same way.  I thought I had “retired” from that nonsense!  Oh well, he is so precious and cute that I forgive him!


Oh yes, little “J” has a new Papillon puppy named “Desi”.  A boy and his puppy—what could be cuter?


Youngest daughter recently was in a fashion show wearing a design made by her friend, local designer, Amber Taylor.


I love the dress and it was perfect for her. 

Yes, they were all glammed up!

This little model wore a design by Punky Monkey!

It was a beautiful October evening with a large crowd in the historic Hillcrest neighborhood!  Loved all the street vendors and this booth with all the vintage, kitschy stuff!  I was a good girl and didn’t buy a thing—except a chili dog!


Hubby spent most of his time checking out the dogs in attendance—when he wasn’t snapping shots of “the prettiest girl in the show”!

Interesting dog here!

Whew, it’s over!  Yes, she was nervous!


Well, off  to face another harried week!  Happy tails to you!

The End.  Sorry, I couldn’t resist!
