Scattered

I'm feeling very scattered today.  There are papers everywhere - the girls both have photo orders for school and both for dance, Tootsie Roll has to take in snack for her Brownie meeting tomorrow but we both work so we can't even get there for the meeting (she can, it's right after school in the building), her birthday party is coming, I have patches to sew on her Brownie vest, somehow have to figure out how to make a Violet Baudelaire costume, nut and magazine sales for Brownies, wrapping paper and chocolate sales for school, rehearsals for a school event, I'm in the midst of changing over the girls' clothing in their closets and drawers from summer to fall/winter so there are clothes everywhere to sort and store, and my principal just recently told us we have to start handing in lesson plans two weeks in advance (which is asinine, because within 3 days first graders have veered from the plan anyway).

I prioritize.  I make lists.  I organize.  I filter and give away and recycle.  I try to minimize, but I bring a lot of work home so I don't have much time and things do pile up.

So this is me saying... Um, yeah.  This counts as my blog post for today. Lol :)  I threw "scattered" into Google and got some interesting pics...






Most of those look too neatly scattered.  :)

Lesson plans are the reason I prefer teaching college.

I dislike feeling scattered, but I love those pics. If only my scattered state looked like those.

Oh, if only I had diamonds scattered around like in that last pic.

I can feel your pain with the lesson plans. They're a pain to write and younger kids do tend to veer off the plan within one or two days anyway.

Ha ha ha! Your house sounds like mine! Especially the hundreds of bits of paper for things to remember to do for the kids! Hope you get it sorted (kind of anyway!) have a good one, K x

Nice pictures! I agree they look too neatly scattered, lol.

I'm in the midst of changing over my summer and winter clothing. As in the bins are out, but I haven't actually done it, lol. I don't like switching over, blah.

Good luck to you with everything!!! I hope you get organized and can breathe easier soon. :)

I feel so scattered lately myself! So much to do in so little time! Great pics by the way and thanks for swinging by my blog!

Love the photos, but they do look artfully staged. My life is also scattered (and my house to match) right now.... paper does have a way of taking over, doesn't it? good luck with everything!
