They are starting to break and the real ray of light.


You may have gathered due to my lack of blogging lately that things haven't been going so well in the bunny world my sisters accuse me of living in.
But the light is starting to break through once again. I was overwhelmed by all kinds of stuff - among other things, one of the big stuff was housework. I was getting further and further behind in it and couldn't seem to get the energy to do it. So yesterday I decided that I had to start somewhere and made a list of tiny baby steps and if I only got one or two baby steps done, then that was a start. And I actually got quite a few baby steps done. I mean, we are talking real tiny baby steps. One of the things was emptying the dishwasher. Another was taking the recyclable stuff out to the blue box. Yep - baby steps indeed. But since I don't really watch Grey's Anatomy, I was safe to spend most of the evening tackling those baby steps and when I looked around by the time I was ready to head to bed, things were looking a whole lot better!!

But the real sunshine in the clouds was when I clicked on to the Borders Blog a few minutes ago (after I finished the baby steps of vacuuming the stairs and managed drop the vacuum cleaner on my head - don't ask but it hurt) and rewarded myself with some blog hopping while rubbing said head and saw my column was up. Whoa - talk about rays of light in a cloudy sky *g*. Jane had asked me a while ago to do a column and luckily I had most of it done before the clouds all gathered. I managed to finish it in the storms of life and send it on.

And it's up today!!!! I was squealing listening to Sue Grimshaw introduce the column. And the topic? Well, *g* you will just have to head on over and read it - heh heh heh!

And now - back to another baby step - vacuuming the 'Library'! And then - changing the bedding. It's all in the baby steps.

Hoping your one step at a time journey is going well ... I've been enjoying reading the comments to your Book Chat blog!

p.s. I sure do like the titles on your left hand side. So many of them I've either read, re-read or want to read!!

Oh your poor head. I make my daughter hold the vaccum for me either a few steps below or above me. I don't know what I will do when she decides that she is going to leave me on my own. I guess drag my husband to the stairs or pull out the trusty broom! I hate the stairs.

I just stopped by the Borders blog. That was a really awesome post!

Well thank gods there's someone else out there who finds housework as much of a challenge as I do.

Though I have not yet managed to drop a vacuum cleaner on my head.
