Yikes! Mostly what I’m falling behind on is visiting blogs. I have a LONG list of emails where I’ve been notified of blog posts. Now I have to make the decision whether or not to try to catch up with all of them, or delete them and start over. I have been able to read and comment on a few here and there, but I’m getting more than I can handle in my email. I’m starting to feel overwhelmed. So if I haven’t commented on your blog in awhile, and I usually do, it’s just a time issue.

I’m falling behind on my current book, too. There are legitimate reasons for this, mostly other things I need to do. But I hope I can dedicate Saturday to my writing AND to some of the other things I need to finish. I will be mad if someone tries to take up my time on Saturday. That day is MINE! I had to go on a work trip this past weekend, so I pretty much will have worked 12 days straight with no time off. I need Saturday. Desperately.

My husband has been out on medical leave since mid-December. He’s feeling great right now, but he’s still not allowed to go back to work. The good thing is, he’s getting really antsy, so the house is staying clean, plus some little projects are also getting done. He’s also done a couple of major things outside. I’ve been a little worried that he’s overdoing it on those things, but he’s a grown man, and I have to trust him to know how he feels. If he can do those things, he can definitely work, but the doctor has the final say on that. When hubby goes back to work, I guess I’ll have to help with the housework again (FlyLady, I’m coming back to you!). I’m going to try not to fall behind on THAT. When housework falls behind, it seems you can never catch up!

So what do you all do when you fall behind? Do you feel overwhelmed? How do you handle it?

I’ve kind of been off and on with the social networking lately. I’ve been so overwhelmed with stuff. Since I got back from the RNConvention, I’ve been flooded with FB friend requests. This is a GOOD thing. But now I’m trying to juggle Facebook, my blog, my writing, my housework, my laundry, my…my…my…. So you get the picture. The way to start this week is to get organized. I need to set aside certain times to do certain things, but leave things flexible in case something comes up. If I’m too rigid with the schedule, I’ll drive myself crazy.

So, I’ve missed visiting a lot of my friends’ blogs, and I want to apologize if you’re used to hearing from me on your blog and haven’t lately. See above…overwhelmed. But I want to remedy that. It was so much easier during the rounds when I was a ROW80 sponsor, because then I had a RESPONSIBILITY. And I don’t take that lightly. This week, I’m going to try my best to get back to blogging regularly and visiting blogs, too. I’ve been interacting a lot on FB with my RNC friends, but I don’t want to neglect my ROW80 friends. Because, you know, you guys rock. And you’ve helped me SO much. I MISS you! And I also miss my blogging friends who aren’t a part of any particular group, but are just FRIENDS. I feel so blessed to have so many friends, no matter where I found them. Isn’t the internet great?
