Things I can't keep up drift away. Things I won't keep up are sometimes lifestyle and sometimes casualties. Things I should keep up? Oy.
Mostly, I'm not keeping up.
Keeping up appearances --
I don't, much. Could improve, but the reasons would not be for sake of appearance.
Keeping up with work demands --
Sometimes I wonder who does, really. You get some things done, and you make progress on others. I got a couple things done today. That list should be longer.
Keeping up the home --
Yurgh. In one weekend, a weekend in which I was at work twice, I managed three loads of laundry, some desk and table clutter clearing, and a little food-prep for a week of packing along all my meals to work. Gah. Bah.
Keeping up with the Joneses --
More distant than the appearance issue, mostly.
Keep your chin up --
Trying to support others who are trying, trying to model the tactic myself.
Having a hard time.
I'm certainly not keeping up with the blogging. I manage only to peer at blogs and knitty and ravelry. I'm knitting a second of the pile of hats I really wanted to crank out.
And I'm not ready for my evening of work. I'm going to do that now. I just wanted to feel like I could use a few minutes of the week to keep up something purely for myself.
Someone else would probably opt for the pedicure.
