I used to make New Year’s Resolutions, which were usually and consistently broken by the end of the first week of the new year.
However, there are things I need to get done and yes I am a procrastinator. One of the things I loved and admired about Don* was, that when there was a project that needed to be completed it was completed with all deliberate speed. Did I mention that Don was in the military for many years? The deal was work now, work later, play much, much later 🙂 ).
I’ve rather gotten away from that mindset and now I have a mountainous pile of “honey-do’s” on the platter before me. Such as:
-drain the hot water tank
-finish grouting the tile around the bathtub and caulking the seams
-paint the floor of the garage (so I can continue to contemplate turning the garage into my art studio, humid weather and all).
et cetera, et cetera, et cetera
Please don’t suggest that I hire someone to do these tasks…the average handy man service does not appear to be overly willing to do these picayune types of things. They want the big jobs for which they can charge LOTS of money. Or at least that’s been my experience.
So here I am at the beginning of a new year and I’ve confessed my lack of incentive to finish things…so as the months go by, during this new year, I’ll share with you how it’s going (or not going) 🙂
My one overwhelming hope, for the new year and every other year remaining to me, is that there will be peace on this earth…
*Don is my deceased husband
