I send myself reminders of the projects, I have them on a checklist on the refrigerator, I walk pass them frequently, but how do I get myself to put down that book and start working on the project? Maybe it's that word "working" that gets me. Is there any solution? I really want to do them, and once I start in on them, they do consume my attention, but it's that starting point that's the kicker.
Do you have a magic process that keeps you on the straight and narrow when you have a number of projects that are going on at the same time?
I can't begin to figure out where 4 entire weeks went. We had big storms and power outages (thankfully ours was of short duration) visitors because of their lack of power while we were still chilling out, doctors, dentist visits and crab feasts.
Then this week I lost my appointment calendar! How in the word am I suppose to function without knowing where I'm supposed to be at what time!?!?! I think that I have tentatively reconstructed my appointments, but if I missed anything, I sure hope it's not that important and can be rescheduled.
This weekend starts a bounty of special events in the next few weeks.
- The annual Maryland Terrapin fan tailgaters crab feast on Saturday the 21st
- Our friend Marshall's wedding on Sunday the 22nd (it was also my Dad's birthday)
- I see the Spine specialist on Tuesday the 24th
- Dentist to replace an old filling on the 26th
- Bingo on Friday the 27th
That's just the first week. Then we hit the road to go to South Carolina for the Baby shower for Molly and her first little one due at Halloween, return so that Tim can go to the Maryland v. Navy football game on Labor Day, Bowling season starts on the 8th, and then a surprise birthday party for Tim's Aunt Phyllis in West Virginia (she'll be 95!) interspersed with 2 sessions of bridge (29th and 1st) and MahJongg whenever we can get 4 players in town and free on the same night. And somehow we need to fit Bunko in the schedule too!
