You know life’s busy when:

  • You forget to eat
  • You don’t stand and stare at your wardrobe hoping for the ‘perfect’ outfit. Instead you grab the most comfortable outfit imaginable.
  • You buy your fruit and veges from Coles or Woolworths and wonder why your tomatoes are flavourless & floury and the state of the mandarines make you cry.
  • You order pizza for dinner instead of cooking.
  • You can’t remember the last time you had a decent conversation with someone you love.
  • You feel guilty when you watch tv.
  • The washing is put under cover on a sunny day.
  • You keep talking in fast forward.
  • Your typing speed increases.
  • Your heart hurts.
  • Sleep feels like a luxury.
  • You cannot plan past tomorrow.
  • Your skin is flaking and your eyebrows fluffy but you just do not care.
  • You keep cancelling fun things.
  • You make lists on your blog instead of thinking of something indepth and fascinating.
  • When you walk your small daughter sprints behind you to keep up.
  • You feel like you’ve run a marathon when you haven’t moved a muscle in 2 weeks.
  • Chocolate is like water.
  • Hanging out the washing is a welcome break.
  • Conversations with friends is conducted in under 10 minutes at break neck speed with many interruptions and you leave feeling rude but with no time or space for guilt you just get on with your day.
  • The iphone, ipod, ipad is taken with you to the toilet and if it was water proof you’d take it in the shower damn it!
  • Though your house is out of control you honestly don’t care if anyone drops in.
  • Lunch marks the beginning of the end.
  • And… you actually find yourself going to bed early!
Well, that is my life at the moment. My writing work is going off (yippee) which requires great organisation and concentration. Especially as the deadline is in the middle of the school holidays. What do they say again? When it rains, it pours. ‘They’ were so right! What does ‘busy’ look like for you?
