I wrote last week about being completely overwhelmed. Most of it was due to my disorganization. I am learning that now. So, how did everything turn out?
We are ready to close on the mortgage! We will be closing on the new mortgage 2 ½ weeks before we originally expected to. Everything turned out great. The house appraised for a lot more than I expected considering the market and what projects still need completed. We are going to be signing the papers this week!
The meeting with local business-women went OK. I am still not very confident about the business we are trying to get up and running. I feel like I need Todd to be my wing-man. He is the talker out of the two of us. He can talk to anyone. I feel very uncomfortable going up to people and starting conversation. But, I went, and I have a couple of leads for the business.
I have been doing really well with the library books. I returned all but 2; however, many more came in. So, I am keeping 1 out of the batch. I hope to read at least one book this weekend (I am home while Todd is at work all day) and start on another. Not having a stack of books on the bedside table helps with my stress because I don’t have that nagging feeling that I should be reading all of those books. Instead – I got rid of that and made a book wish-list in a document that I can get whenever I’d like. Problem solved.
One thing I learned through being so overwhelmed last week is that I need to do better with my time-management. I also need to work on my communication skills. And as I mentioned in the original post, I need to loosen up on having to be in control all of the time.
