I’ve been overwhelmed, have you noticed? Today is the 8th and you’re only receiving post number 7 in my 31 day series (which means I’m actually 3 days behind). And yes, I’m somewhat ashamed of getting behind (so publicly) on this project.
But I’ve learned a lesson. I’m not always in control.
I planned for this month, more than I typically plan my blog posts. I had a nice mix of quick to accomplish tasks that I’ve been avoiding and longer tasks. But then the universe ripped out the rug from under me.
I’ve been spending a great deal of time with family, which I’m thankful for, but well…no one is ever happy when their visits with family need to take place in a hospital. We’re ok, and things are going well, but please bare with me as these posts come in a bit erratically.
And what have I tackled today? A very mundane task….
It took an hour and has been put off…forever. These folders have never been organized before. I am SO glad to have it finally finished. Now I just need to continue to use the folders regularly. Won’t that be a treat? Oh and maybe buy some more hanging folder and labels so things can spread out a bit.
Sometimes crossing these tasks off my list gives me instant gratification like open space in my trunk after going to goodwill, or cleaner carpet after getting a vacuum. Not so much this time. I’ll keep reminding myself that this is a win hoping that sense of accomplishment sneaks up on me before bedtime.
