I came over all domestic. Sorted out cupboards. Did ALL my ironing - do I feel virtuous or what?
Made up a big batch of tomato sauce - the window sill was getting loaded down with ripening tomatoes and something had to be done. Then to top it off I made a huge pan of chili - we should be eating it for several weeks.
Recently I have found the lack of structure in my days, now that I have changed careers from being an office worker for more years than I care to mention, to a real estate agent working for myself, has left me with a lot of time on my hands, and the more time I have, the less I have been getting done.
Obviously the wedding meant my mind was off the real estate scene for a few weeks there and now I am having trouble getting focused again. We are still in a pretty active market here in "the Golden Triangle" but I feel that I am back at square one, back where I was this time last year and struggling a little to raise my game. I feel confident that things will pick up but in the meantime I need something ......
With my trip to France next weekend, sod's law says that I will suddenly get busy next week, so let's see. My son and I leave next Friday and will spend three nights down by the house and one night in Paris before we head back. I know it seems crazy - so much expense, such a long way for such a short time, but we will rest easier when someone has been over and checked on the work and made sure everything is in order for the winter. Then we will start saving in earnest to have a proper productive trip over early in the New Year - maybe February.
