Scatter brained

Ok, I'm not really scatterbrained, I just think maybe my brain is on overload, about to overheat... You know, like when you've got so much going on that you kind of move from thing to thing to thing and get a lot done, but don't finish anything? I think this is partly my doing. I've become very ambitious all of a sudden and start my mornings off with so many plans for the day....problem is I never get as much accomplished as I think I will. Basically, I've just got projects galore and want to get it all done NOW, but it's not happening...not even realistic really....

Today, I got a lot done, even if I spent several hours this morning on the couch. I managed to read the newspaper...ok really, I mostly read the ads, the arts section and yesterday's home section....purged several magazines--tearing out ideas, inspiration and recipes, mopped floors, cleaned the bathroom and the kitchen, watered plants, finished a scrapbook page and started another one, got Shawn to purge a lot of boxes, took out the recycle and the garbage, did 7 loads of laundry, stripped the extra bed in preparation for switching beds, made lunch and dinner, unloaded and loaded the dishwasher, downloaded some new tunes, surfed the usual websites, posted a few things.....are you tired yet? I've still got plans to change the sheets (they're currently in the dryer), meal plan and write a grocery list, knit and watch some TV.

I had hoped to get the beds all switched and set up in the extra bedroom, spackle the walls in the bathroom, dust and vaccuum....there's always tomorrow...

Shawn and I did manage to watch two movies this weekend. We saw Gran Torino on Friday and Slumdog Millionare yesterday. Both of which were excellent movies. I highly recommend them both. There sure are a lot of good movies out right now. I've seen more movies in the past month than I saw all of last year I think. In addition to these two, I have also seen Seven Pounds and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Valkerie. I enjoyed all of these movies. There are several I would still like to see, including the Reader, Doubt, Australia, Bride Wars, Defiance, Last Chance Harvey, Marley & Me, Revolutionary Road....I can't even remember the last time there were so many good movies out all at once.

Ok, I'm off to knit and check the dryer.
Hope your weekend was lovely!

Erin, you never sit still. LOL! I am also impressed by the amount of things you get done in one day and wish I was a bit like you. Thanks for the heads up on the movies. I will have to check them out. I saw Bride Wars and thought it was very good. Funny and sad. :o)

Oiy, I can't stand when I have crazy "busy brain" ... usually it keeps me up at night and sometimes it's better to just pull a long night or two to check a bunch of things off.

I can't wait to see see how all the "baby/cupcake/sweetness" planning turns out, I'm sure it will be fab!!
