This seems to be the question of the day, because I was informed by a friend that I haven’t posted anything here for awhile… Ok, sorry. But I have been busy with work and other stuff and as everyone knows there only are so many hours in a day and to fit everything in that I want to do… well, it just doesn’t seem to work.
Then there was the New Year’s resolution issue too. I have never in my life made one because I know myself too good and I would/ could make one and probably the next day forget all about it, so to be on the safe side…
I just don’t make any! Now that really makes my life simple no worries, no reminders that I forgot to stick to the resolution and so forth!! Though while writing here I could think of a couple of things I could maybe put on a list.
1. Hoe out the attic… a nightmare under the roof just waiting for my moment of motivation… what year that will be; I really can’t tell you and don’t hold your breath waiting for me to do the job either. But it is on my to do list!!
2. Sort out books… I started but stopped after I found a book that I had never read before but have owned it for at least 20 years… High time to read it, before I forget it! So, with a nice cup of tea and relax on the sofa with the book….. Who needs to sort out the books now? Not me!!
3. The closet… Vintage styles are in, so why sort out my clothing when I am at the height of fashion now!! My golly it is so good to know that if you save something long enough it comes back in style and because it was tucked away all those years in the closet; no one will recognize it and only ask me if it is a new vintage outfit… And I can say “Oh, it is just something that I have had hanging around in my closet”… So, I guess forget that idea too about sorting out the closet.
Though I will admit I downloaded a plan that is supposed to help me organize things a bit better around here. I have even printed it out and hung it in the kitchen next to all the other things that are on the important things to do board. At least I have gotten as far as hanging it up and taking a look at it every day and contemplating to myself “when I have time I will do something on this piece of paper”.
I know that the motivation is just a step away and only a matter of time when I will tackle one of those jobs that are on the paper. I like the one about sorting out a drawer… Really easy and quick…. So I thought, I guess you have to start with a small drawer with not much in it and not one crammed with photos like I did, because I ended up sitting down and reminiscing about things while looking at them.
Well, at least now I can say that I have written about something and I will admit that I feel better too just thinking about all the things I should be doing, but instead I am sitting here writing something.
Enjoy whatever it is that you are doing and remember even if you goof-off whatever you have started at home will be there when you get back home waiting for you to finish it.
