I have been really busy recently with a new project. People who know me personally always say I have too many things on my plate. This is true, I will not deny it, but I just have to keep busy. I just don't feel good when I am bored therefore I tend to over schedule myself.
So with every free moment, I am working on this project. There are 4 people who know what I am doing and only 2 that know the details. (If you pay attention to some of my posts lately, you may even be able to figure it out) *Challenge*
The house chores have gone to the wayside, it's every man/woman/child/baby for themselves these days. (I am not proud of this) But when I am focusing on something, I need to run with it and finish it so I can get back into our normal routine and then move onto something else.
I often joke that I have OCD, I've never been diagnosed with it, but if you google the symptoms, I have EVERY one of them.
OCD isn't a bad thing to have if you can learn to manage it to your advantage. Over the years, I have learned to manage it so that I can be highly efficient. With extreme focus, you can accomplish many things in a short period of time, which is a good thing when you have a gazillion things on your "to do" list a day.
I do have to confess that although I can be highly focused, I am still learning to balance that when I have a million distractions too. I am can be easily distracted too. With 4 children and a homeschooling lifestyle, I get a lot of distractions in our day. I am human. I am learning. I am adjusting.
So, I thought I would share with you why I have been absent for a few days. What's the new project you ask? I will share it with the world when I know it's going to work. I am breaking out of my familiar zone with this project and I am not ready to share. If it doesn't end up working to may satisfaction, I don't want to look stupid. As it is, I still think I am borderline crazy for attempting it, thus all the secrecy. I am excited for trying something new, something that is challenging to me, but I am not willing to share until I am feeling a lot more confident about it.
Oh, there I go with being distracted again...I didn't expect to start my entry being about OCD or even my reason for not blogging. The reason for making a post with the title "Happy Days!" is that I weighed myself today and I have OFFICIALLY lost all my holiday/post New Year flub! YEA!! I am exactly what I weighed last July, and I am thrilled to see what the next few months will bring!
What I did today:
Elliptical: 15 min @ level 15
