One-Armed Paper Hanger

When my schedule is hectic, I always think of the "I Love Lucy" episode when she and Ethel meet catastrophe in their attempt to hang wallpaper.    The glue is drying faster than they can hang the paper and the result is this...
I kind of feel that way today...this week...this month...this year.  I am trying to get so much done in such a small amount of time that I can't give 100% to any one thing and every thing ends up like Lucy's wallpaper up there. 

I do it to myself mostly.  I try to be the perfect wife and mother, employee and boss and end up feeling like a failure at all of them.  I'm only one person and can only do so much but I feel like I should be able to do it all. 

So, I'm going to take a deep breath and do what I can, when I can.  I know none of it is going to go away, but I can try to let up on myself and my need to be perfect. 

Just breathe.


  1. Oh my woman... why are you trying so hard to be perfect!?!?!? No one is perfect. Ever. I just wake up each day and try my best, my very best. And if I fail, there is always tomorrow :)

  2. It has just been one of those weeks here. I just want to hide under my bed until next week.
