“Chaos is merely order waiting to be deciphered.” ―
Time and time again I am being taught that nothing is under my control and not everything can be done according to my clock. I have to wait for people and things and waiting kills me. At this moment life feels chaotic and I am learning (kicking and screaming) to be okay with it.
I like order and everything organized, but messy is becoming my new normal. The work I am doing in my apartment is not completed yet and at this point has no completion date. I wanted to have it all done before I brought my Mom here for her biannual visit. It will not be the case.
“You may delay, but time will not.” ―
Time got away from me. All of a sudden I realized that September is here and I still hadn’t scheduled a date to go to Brazil. So last week I got tickets for tomorrow. My lack of planning resulted in paying an arm and a leg for the tickets. I will try to plan things better in the future, but it seems that there is never a right time to leave work. Since this trip is so last minute I will be taking my laptop with me and will be doing work from there. I am already regretting having said I was going to do that.
I will be in Brazil for 10 days, bring Mom here for 3 weeks, then returning to Brazil to take Mom home. After Mom turned 80 and her health has declined a bit I don’t like to let her travel alone anymore.
In the meantime I still haven’t planned my skiing trip. Perhaps there is a Ski Trip Fairy that will come in during the night and put an itinerary under my pillow.
One can hope.
