Tea Time with Annie Kate Rotating Header Image

Just a ‘Wee Bit’ Overwhelmed


Suddenly it feels as though I have a few too many things on the go.  Besides homeschooling my five children and all the usual home chores, I must complete these projects before Saturday:

  • Select photos for my sister who is making a book for my parents and mail them to her on a CD.  This is mostly done. 
  • Understand all the legalese in our new mortgage and (hopefully) go sign it.  I’ve worked on this a lot already. 
  • Prepare several boxes of books for a second-hand curriculum sale. I’ve never done this before, so I’m not even sure how to price the books. Help! 


Although these projects don’t have urgent deadlines before the weekend, I also really should:

  • Start our leek, tomato, petunia, geranium, and pepper seedlings.
  • Get together containers for the seedlings. We brought the potting soil inside to warm up; that’s step one. 
  • Write a review that is due Monday.
  • Start planning the next Blog Cruise post.
  • Succeed at putting Google Friend Connect on my blog. 
  • Prepare to dormant spray our fruit trees.
  • Ensure that the little girls have warm weather clothing available.  The forecast is for cold weather, so I won’t worry about this for the next half week.  Phew! 


And, of course, there are many other things I want to do, but I’ll have to put those on hold for now.


How good it is to know that God doesn’t give us more to do than is possible!  So off I go to manage my time wisely and work diligently.


Have a great day!

    I wish you the best in getting your projects finished. I can't help much on the book pricing. I've noticed lately that things which used to sell for very high prices on Ebay aren't selling for as much these days.

    I guess my best advice is to think of it like this: Am I pricing the books to be looked at, or am I pricing them to sell? Think about how much you would be willing to pay for them, and that will also help.

    That was great advice, and really helped in pricing the books. Thank you!

    Now I've finished the 'do before Saturday' list, and can get to work on some of the other projects.
