All in a Day

Posted by Dianna Massie on

Today is Monday and the Cottage is closed.  So, when I have a day off, I tend to just lollygag around all day; starting projects and rarely finishing any of them.  Why, you may ask, not just focus and complete? My thinking is that whatever is not completed will be there when I get back to it.  I am able to multi-task and never, ever complete anything I start.  It is a very frustrating characteristic I hold especially dear.  I have tried and tried to correct this trait, but, alas, to no avail. I blame my kids for any dysfunctional areas in my life.  They do not know this, so, I works as my secret weapon. They have no recourse to take-up for themselves.

Today I am focusing on a project I start and stop continually; organizing my desk and paperwork. My attention span is that of a gnat (fifth grade spelling word GNAT) so I am challenging myself today to see if I can ignore the other things I need to get done today, and focus on just my desk. I will need to hide my Ipad and phone from myself in order to work on the piles and piles of paper and trash that need my attention. Then, of course, I will not be able to remember where I hid them.  I will just ask my husband to please call my cell so I can locate her.  In case I do not complete this project today, I will just put it off until another time.  A great motto that I use often is, "In order to combat boredom, never complete today what you can do tomorrow."  The boredom part is my own addition.  Have you ever heard that one?  Tomorrow is another wonderful day at Cottage on Main. I may need to take a little magazine-time-rest today to prepare myself for work tomorrow.  *yawn*  There's a little scripture that says, "A man who makes haste with his feet errs."  Out of context? Maybe. Although 'm sure that applies to women, too.  What do you do on your day off, huh?
