Fair weather blogger

I'm not sure why this is true about me, but I feel like I can't blog or write when life is kicking me in the shins.  I sometimes feel like since I started this blog to discuss house/home type things that I can't write when I am not really doing those things!
I feel guilty that I have cut and designed all the parts for the coffee table I am buidling, but yet I can't find the time to sand the legs and get it all painted.
In all, when I say life is kicking me in the shins, it's relative.  Life is pretty 'normal', but little things keep me too busy working, too busy caring for D-bear and too busy running to get it all done.
Somehow I miss the fact that every day I feed and care for 2 horses, 3 dogs, 7 hens and 1 cat.  Everyone is happy and shiny and fed.  I also manage to run a business, pay all the bills, raise a kid with significant special needs. I also get to the gym most of the time, ride my horse and even did a few shows last year.  I also manage to keep the floor swept, the dishes done, the laundry washed and everybody vertical on any given day.  Yet I feel guilty I haven't sanded those dang table legs!  LOL

I'm going to try to be less of a fair weather person.  I tend to get so caught up in 'perfection' that I fall victim to "why bother" mentality. 
This Christmas I was hating myself for only getting TWO Christmas trees up.  What is wrong with me?  that's two more than some people!  LOL  So...I am going to try again to focus on the moment...and if that coffee table EVER gets done I will surely blog about it.  If it doesn't, I'll just keep trucking.

Do yourself a favor this Christmas. Don't hold yourself to a higher standard than you would a friend!

Merry Christmas!
