On my way in to work this morning I was thinking about my weekend and how much I didn't get done:
I didn't get my Christmas tree up
I didn't get the dog pee smell out of the carpet (I think I'll have to lose the elderly dog and the carpet to take care of that one)
I didn't finish the quilt for Laura
I didn't get my NaNo project reorganized for revising/finishing
Okay, I don't need to go on, but the list is pretty long.
Then I started thinking about my to-do list:
All the things that didn't get done over the weekend
Cure cancer and peripheral nerve injuries, and if there is time, PTSD
Be a better mom
Be a better wife
Be more spiritual
Be a great writer
But then I got distracted while sitting at a stoplight, checking to see if anyone interesting had Tweeted yet this morning.
Which brought me back around to all the time I spend with social media and then how much I didn't get done over the weekend....although I did have some interesting conversations in cyberspace!
So. I'm practicing balance today. I am setting my timer for fifteen minute increments and (whoops, hang on, it just went off).
Okay, I'm back.
And I'm doing the different things I want and/or need to do in fifteen minute increments, so that maybe bythe end of the day, I'll feel like I've at least made some progress. And instead of feeling like I'm running around getting nowhere, maybe I'll be able to cross something off the list.
My other resolution for the week? Leave the Crackberry in my purse when I'm behind the wheel. Honest, I don't text and drive, but I sure do check it every time I hit a stop light. I actually sat all the way through a light today and listened to the radio, and learned that It's Dave Brubeck's 90th birthday, so in honor of Dave and all of us who try to do too much, let's Take Five, shall we?
