OCTOBER
October is a prankster, a con man, a swindler and a liar. If October tells you your shoe's untied, don't look down. If October whispers the name of a certain stock, don't buy it. If October shakes your hand, check your wallet. October wants you to believe that the sunny days of summer weren't all that good, that August was too hot and it rained all of July. October wants you to appreciate the sparkling afternoons and the brisk mornings, the colors of the leaves and the taste of caramel apples. October wants to pull the wool over your eyes and at the same time yank your underwear up to your chest when you're not looking. October is leading you down a primrose lane, and at the end of that is November, so don't fall for it. The World According to Chuck

I didn't write that, but I wish I could have.

I'm on the verge of nervous breakdown. Or maybe I'm just being melodramatic. heh. Too much to do and not enough time to do any of it.

The annual meeting went extremely well last night and the presentation went off without a hitch. I'm thinking of calling in busy to choir tonight, and I've been thinking that I've maybe bitten off way more than I can chew by taking on that weekly commitment, which makes me alternately sad and upset. I REALLY want to be singing, but if it means having to say no to other things I'm giving a higher priority to, I don't know what to do. My family is getting the short end of the stick these days and I need to do something about that. I know I shouldn't be feeling guilty, but I still am, despite lots of encouragement and positive thinking from everyone around me.

Every week is like this, lately.

I haven't even been able to work on my collage book for 2 weeks, another thing that is bumming me out.

On the plus side, however, I saw and talked to a lot of good friends last night, and galestorm gave me some more goodies, including a little oddity called a dauber duo that I can't wait to try out. And I got to eat sushi for dinner, and no, Nemo wasn't in it. :)

Is there something you don't particularly enjoy but feel obligated to do? Maybe you could get rid of that, if there is anything. Or at least something that you won't regret not doing in twenty years?

I liked the October thing.. very cute. :)

laundry. cleaning the house. picking up after everyone else. parent meetings. filling and emptying the dishwasher. I suppose the best thing would be to hire a maid, but they're not so easy to come by here. Plus we can't afford it. rats.
