I don’t know what it is lately, but I’m craving simplicity. I want – nope, I need – things to be as simple as possible. There are a few reasons for this.
One of those reasons is this guy:
Our little Scrappy Dog has begun having very big, very scary seizures. In the last two weeks we’ve been faced with putting him to sleep, giving him up or spending massive amounts of money on specialists. Money we do not have.
We have lost a lot of sleep in the last two weeks. Luckily we’ve found a wonderful vet that’s willing to help us and give our little guy what he needs right now.
In the course of those two weeks we’ve also discovered our dishwasher leaking and we had to buy a new one last Saturday. (And before you ask – fixing it wasn’t an option. It’s the one the builders installed in 1996. It was time to replace it.) More money. Ugh.
And of course, in the last year I’ve been battling my brain chemistry. I don’t have the attention span or the cognitive space to multi-task anymore. I need big tasks broken into smaller chunks so I can continue feeling motivated and successful.
I just need things to be simplified. Chores, cooking and menu planning, this house, the dog’s treatment – everything. I crave purging this house of unwanted and unneeded things. I want to streamline my chore list. I want to break things down, tear them apart and the put them back together again in a more organized and manageable way. I’m going to be sharing a couple of ways I’m doing that this week on the blog. I hope you’ll stop by and check them out. Maybe they’ll inspire you to make life a little more simple too.
