Busy, Busy, Busy!

Yeah, this week has been so busy, I just had to say it three times... heheh... just kidding.  Well, it has been really horribly busy; so much so I have barely had time to myself to do anything by crash after finishing some computer work at some ungodly hour while everyone else around my in their own units/townhouses have intelligently gone to bed!  For me, this week has been a really, very busy week; and honestly, I don't know how I'm making it through... adrenaline? Maybe, maybe not.  I'm just hoping I don't crash and burn out next week... dreadful stuff that... been there done that; never again.

Okay, let's cover what I've done this week and see what else needs to be done to finish the week off!  Then, let's see if I got in and did it all?  Now, that'll be a really good end to the week, won't it?  

On Monday, I was off to my craft day from Mum and Dad's place.  Okay, this was my only 3 hours of relaxation I had this week.  By the end of me sitting there painting, I had mostly completed a small painting of a flower I took a photo of, then printed up on Dad's printer (sorry Dad, I needed something to copy off!).  
That afternoon, I was doing a Writing Race I take part in on Facebook for another 3 hours!  I did take a 20 minute break in there somewhere to get a snack and a drink.  Otherwise, I was busily writing away and editing my books and stories. Phew!  And was that exhausting.  
The next afternoon, I arrived home and sorted out what needed to be done for my shopping day the next day.  Then, yesterday, I went out shopping later than usual as it was cold and drizzly... I took my time and did everything I needed and bought what I wanted and needed and found my way home.  A mere hour after I arrived home, it poured rain!  How fortunate was that!
But all day, I was hearing about the murder that had occurred on streets away from where I was shopping.  It was horrible to be walking and socialising in the area where this terrible, pointless crime (but then when does crime have a point?) occurred.  When the rain poured down, I looked outside and hoped the crime scene hadn't been destroyed in any way.
Yesterday afternoon, after unpacking all my gear from shopping and putting it all away, I grabbed Season 6 of 'Supernatural' I got off layby and eagerly began preparations for a night of watching the first disk of the 22 episodes.  However, I was in for a big surprise when I found the box had locked me out!  Damn!  After calling 'Woodys' I found out I had to take it back and they'd unlock it for me.  I was bummed, disappointed and really wanted to watch it; but couldn't, not last night anyway.

Today, I was up by 8am, grabbed my laundry, a new bag, scarf and beanie and was dressed by 8:30am and ready to head out the door by 9:30am to catch the bus at 9:50am to Logan Central.  Two loads of laundry had been done and the fruit and veggie shopping had been done at The Big Apple down the road by this time; and so I left my blue trolley by the door and rushed out to catch the bus. 
I arrived home at around 1pm via the 545 to Garden City, with Season 6 of 'Supernatural' now unlocked thanks to Carol at 'Woodys' and then I walked through to the chemist and bought some vitamins and some make-up and then came home.  

Tomorrow, I have to put away my knitting gear I'm not currently using.  This is the big purple knitting box but not the bags which have half-finished work in them.  I also have to put away photographs, clear the lounge, put away clothes, throw out the newspapers from last week, tidy up the coffee table and then start to pack my bedroom up in preparations for cleaning it on Saturday morning.  I'm in for a busy couple of days of cleaning, tidying and packing.  The suitcases for the packing are out of the storage facility under my stairs, and so I can get it all done quickly and easily.  Now, it's a matter of figuring out what to do with the sewing machine; whether to sell it or fix it up and keep it as a working machine (as it's not electric).

So, what have you got planned for the rest of the week?  As you can see, my week is terribly busy and it's not yet over; and my weekend is horribly busy too.  Until my next post, take care, keep safe and warm and remember, I'm always here.
