Fitting Daily Life Puzzle Pieces Together

I got an order yesterday for a $3.88 book. To process it, I have to drive seven miles home to get it and do the paperwork and fight with the shipping software again. I was hoping if I waited to process it today, anoher order might come in so I could do more than one in this trip.

Of course, I also have to do a few chores once I get there. My husband kindly leaves all the dirty dishes for me, but that's OK. He can't always see all the dirt before he rinses and puts them in the drainer. I also have to pull more long grass to put over garbage he put on the compost heap yesterday. And I prefer to shower when I'm over there, since it's a smaller, easier to wipe down shower than the one over here.

Somehow on the way there or back I need to take a photo walk, if possible. But I still have to get to the post office before five and find or take something to keep me from starving until I get back home. It gets interesting trying to make all the pieces of my daily puzzle slide into place. I'd better put away the beans that just finished cooking for tomorrow's chili, pack some lunch, and get myself over to my office and warehouse.

Sometime tonight, after I'm home, I will cash out here. I'm currently at $20.02 but I'd like to add a few cents just to be sure.

Do you have any complicated life puzzles to fit together today?

Congratulations on making the $20 payout level, that's fantastic, especially when you have had health problems recently.

I always have complicated life puzzles to fit together. Work is enough of a puzzle most days, then add in an eBay listing that's getting active, a house that desperately needs some housework and a list of other Things To Do and you have me running round rather madly most days.

Still, at least you have made payout! Congratulations! I have some way to go yet.

You really do have a lot of pieces to work with regarding that puzzle. Life sure does have a lot of pieces to it.

The pieces of my puzzle aren't particularly complicated, but I'm disorganised and often struggle to fit them all into the available time.

My life is not complex with doings at all at this time. People/relationships can be complicated from time to time. That's what I find drains my energy the most. Looking forward to the weeks ahead when we can see the green of the grass again.

Congratulations on making the payout level. : ) Inspiration and motivation for me to keep chugging along.

Congrats are in order I guess for those 20 dollars you will soon cash out. And as for chores I think we all have stories to tell.

I wasn't very good at my puzzle for today. I couldn't seem to get my act together today after running errands and washing dishes. One episode of "Little House" during lunch led to two, which led to another during supper, then another. It's a good thing I made a little extra money yesterday because I haven't made that much today.

It's taken me since the end of July, although I could have cashed out earlier at the five dollar level, I'm glad I waited

BarbRad wrote on February 28, 2015, 12:59 AM

Ah, yes. There's housework that needs doing. We will always have housework that needs doing. Today I've started working toward my next payout. It should go faster this time, since the site is bigger, and the coins are now worth more than when I started.

It keeps me from getting bored.

BarbRad wrote on February 28, 2015, 1:00 AM

There always seems more to do than fits into the available time.

BarbRad wrote on February 28, 2015, 1:01 AM

OK. You've got me beat with the number of complexities in your life. Good luck with all of that.

BarbRad wrote on February 28, 2015, 1:03 AM

Relationships can get complicated, but I don't have many in my life right now one husband, no kids, no parents, no in-laws. That leaves an occasional neighbor, customer, or friend. My grass at home is halfway to my knees. My gardener takes care of the grass here.

Sorry, but I guess you needed some unwinding time. I'm pretty happy with what I finished today. But there's lots more to get one tomorrow.

Wow! i bet even though you have to travel miles away it is a bit rewarding to get books, and take some picture I bet... and a cash out? That is the best, harvesting the fruits of your labor. God bless.

Treating life as a jigsaw puzzle is a great idea! Unfortunately, I think that the jigsaw of my life is missing a couple of important pieces emoticon :smile:

BarbRad I used to have to deal with lots of puzzle pieces in my life. These days things are simpler. But there are those days when things just need to be organized and the struggle does get to me. I know the feeling.

BarbRad wrote on March 1, 2015, 4:25 PM

Thank you. The trip is only seven miles one way, and I'd have to take it that far on the way home to the post office anyway. One thing I like about cashing out here, your money stays in the bank and keeps growing until they have checked everything and put it in your Paypal account.

BarbRad wrote on March 1, 2015, 4:26 PM

That happens, too. Remember, I'm only talking about one day here.

BarbRad wrote on March 1, 2015, 4:28 PM

As my mom used to quote, "Sufficient to the day are the troubles thereof." I think it originally came from the Bible, but i'm not positive.

BrenndaMarie wrote on March 2, 2015, 2:21 AM

Congratulations on being able to cash out. I am hoping to get there by the end of May. I will just to wait and see. It is never easy trying to do everything. That is what women have to do everything. Or, it may just seem that way to me.

Things in my life tend to be far more complicated than they should be.

Wordsmith wrote on March 3, 2015, 1:06 AM

It sounds like your daily life complications are not too bad compared to people who live in big cities. You live in a nice area. You are so lucky.

inertia4 wrote on March 3, 2015, 8:09 PM

BarbRad But I did learn that each day is it's own day. So whatever happens one day might not happen the next. I cannot live with maybes or what if's. So the day by day thing works well for me.
