One Track Mind
I'm finding more and more that's what I have. I'll be trotting along, working on something, then DING! a reminder goes off that this other thing is waiting to be done and off I go. The problem is I'm usually totally oblivious to what I've left behind.
Take today's blog for instance. Several times on Saturday I thought, "I need to work on that. What do I want to write about?" Luckily I did actually think about a topic, planned a little what I was going to say. Sunday came, and with it the rush of cleaning the house to a sparkling shine.
Now, housecleaning is usually not that high on my priority list, but the Real Estate agent is coming for the first time today. So I enlisted the whole family and we worked hard. I even cleaned the oven, so that you can finally see through the front window (please, don't judge). So you can see why this was important enough for me to focus on.
I remember once thinking I needed to get my blog written, but the thought was quickly lost amidst dinner with the in-laws, getting ready for school the next day, and remembering that I needed to prepare the tax stuff for the accountant. So I trudged from chore to chore, completely oblivious that this important task has been relegated to the backburner.
My original intended topic for today was juggling and the things I'm learning from it in my life. I guess the universe decided to give me a hands-on lesson instead. :) My pearl of wisdom from all this? I'm learning to take my days one task at a time, because that's all I can remember.
PS Last week's winner from my Monday blog is crystalg for having to spend the holiday at work. Sorry for the delay, but I was without computer service for several days. Contact me with your snail mail address at firstname.lastname@example.org .
