Caregiving is many things but one of the side effects that you don’t usually hear about is the tedium. Maybe others don’t experience this but I can only run up and down the steps to fetch food and ice so many times a day before it starts to get tedious. Stress baking and cooking didn’t help much either this weekend. I’m even looking forward to going to the office. Yikes!
So I was thrilled when I heard from a girlfriend that her newest grandbaby came a week early and is healthy and at home already. Thrilled for two reasons: a healthy new grandbaby is always thrilling AND I now have a project to work on.
I’m making baby blocks and I have to know the baby’s name before I get started since the number of blocks and paper squares depends on the number of letters in the baby name. Once I got going on the blocks I remembered that I needed to make a couple of thank you notes for YA as well. I spent a couple of relaxing hours in my studio and now I feel better. Guess I need to come up with some projects to work on the next couple of weeks!
Do you have any go-to tedium terminators?
