Sunday Summary – Pulled in All Directions Edition

I am exhausted!

This past week has been a flurry of work (at my main part-time job), book club, Italian class, dinner and project meeting with friends, work (at my new short-term part-time job), studying, web design, re-learning CSS, squeezing in some reading so as to keep up with my 2013 challenge, photo taking, and (believe it or not) a little bit of writing. Meanwhile, hanging over our heads is the knowledge that Peter will be back in the hospital this coming week for his second (hopefully successful and FINAL) surgery… good news, and a long-awaited event, but stressful nonetheless.

I feel as though I’m being pulled in about fifteen different directions at once… and, to top it all off, the sink is full of dirty dishes and I still haven’t taken down my Christmas tree!

My predicament is pretty much all of my own doing, however, as I’m not willing to sacrifice any of the above for the sake of some downtime. Guess I’ll just have to muddle through for the time being!

In Case You Missed It

Once again, it’s been a week with no blog posts. Oops.

Random Delights & Inspiration

Found in my travels…

  • “Friendship Redefined?” – thought-provoking blog post (particularly for those of us heavily involved in social media) by Corinne at Everyday Gyaan.
  • Windsor Girls Growl – brand new Facebook page (set up as a prelude to the web site/blog I’m working on with a group of friends) for Windsorites, foodies, restaurant review lovers, etc. I’d love it if you’d check it out, “Like” it, and stay tuned for the launch of our schmancy new blog!

Photo A Day Challenge

This month I’m participating in the January photo a day challenge. I’m sharing my photos daily on Instagram, Twitter, and Flickr, and weekly here on Alphabet Salad. (Clicking on any of the photos below will take you to my Flickr account.)
