Slowly but Surely . . . .

Slowly but surely, I think my anxiety is moderating. But it's still there, most definitely!

So, why (or, more to the point, "how") the progress?

Well, figurative compartmentalized boxes 1 - 3 + an unscheduled #4 are complete. No, make that 5!

  1. Chicken chores are done.
  2. The outdoor wood furnace has been tended to, and I also burned all the remaining toilet-water-soaked boxes from the disaster that were still sitting on the front entrance.
  3. See the latter in the above plus the rest of the piled-up STUFF that was out there has been taken care of (rugs to shake, towels to go into the washing machine, compost to be taken out, etc.).
  4. Brushed my teeth, washed my face, got "ready" for the day.
  5. And, my unscheduled 'box'? Since I was already in the bathroom, I swept the floor and put the area back together where the water had been bubbling up during the disaster. Then, I put away the nearly 96 (!!!) rolls of septic/environmentally-healthy toilet paper (Seventh Generation) that my folks donated to us! We're set for a while, now!

Now onto the next thing most stressing me out: ordering stand-by parts for our Onan generator. It's a job that I started doing over a week ago. And got side-tracked away from each time. THIS TIME, it's gettin' done! But maybe I should get another cup of coffee, first.

  1. Thanks for taking the time for the up-date. I feel better now.

    I know it always helps me when I'm at the end of my (not securely knotted) rope to physically get up and DO something. Takes some of the pressure and anxiety away from the thinking . . . which ain't necessarily always a good thing. Thinking, I mean. That's why I try to do as little of it as possible.


If you are familiar with me and where I live, please respect my right to retain some anonymity by not referring to me by anything other than Chicken Mama nor mentioning city/town/villages by place names. Thanks!
