Just do it already
Carole and Kat's prompt is so timely. There have been lots of things I've been putting off, and just need to hunker down and do them.
I'm great about making the list, figure out the steps and the timing for each task, but it seems lately I don't get as much accomplished as I used to-could be the temptation to binge watch TV with Steve, or maybe it's because I don't have any energy when I get home from work. I'm staying much busier at the office than I have in the past which is great, but it's certainly infringing on my personal time. Also, since I am taking my mother to physical therapy 2 days a week I'm missing almost a full day of work each week, and am trying to make up that time by bringing work home.
Some of the things I need to do include: re-writing my will [it's woefully outdated and has been amended numerous times]. Get my knitting in order, finish my Kaffe Fassett afghan [ugh, I am so out of love with this project], finish my hexagon on the gro [another project I'd like to divorce], clean out the guest closet [so much needs to go to storage], on-line research for my mom, and figure out how to use some of the technology in my new car. That's really not all, but it's some things that need to be done sooner rather than later.
I have a 3 day weekend coming up, and my plan is to not leave the apartment except to walk Sophie, so I truly hope to tackle some of these things. It's going to mean sitting at my computer for a while, visiting website, printing stuff out, and making notes.
I'm feeling very motivated right now- so we'll see. Play along with Carole and Kat:are there some unfinished monster projects you've been avoiding?!
