I have decided that this new month should be a time of personal and spiritual renewal. A clearing of debts (where possible), an elimination of old projects hanging over my head. A clearing of the slate.
There are several projects.
Just sitting here, I can think of several I’ve put off for far too long, or forgotten about until just now, such as designing a new brochure, copy-editing family history files, repairing clothing, organizing old papers sitting on my desk. There’s also stocking up on baby supplies for when Peanut arrives, planning gifts for this holiday season, considering writing a family letter, budgeting for shoes and clothing for various people, etc.
We shall not speak of paying off financial debts. Those are long-term plans.
I just realized that I’ve only listed projects at home. At work I have department Safety Champion duties, writing a list of grievances (per supervisor’s suggestion), going through old manuals and absorbing new duties!
And another project that’s gone on for too long (I’m on a roll), is Adrian. I think I’d best get him knocked out while I only have one child to handle, don’t you? If only I could figure out what I’m going to do with him!
In the meantime, I have several books to read, including Don’t Waste Your Life and Making Sense of Scripture. I’ve also checked out books about vegetarian and vegan cooking, and one rather silly thing to read. I’ve already had these books for a week or two, though, and I’ve only read a little bit of one. Not doing too well with reading.
Aside: Here’s a picture I took of Azrael at the library on the 1st, which was a lovely day:
She’s a camera ham.
I have a magnet on my refrigerator that says “I could do great things if I weren’t so busy doing little things.” This month, I plan on getting some of those little things out of my way. I know little things will always be with me, but there needn’t be so many of them.
November shall be a month of accomplishment. Somehow.
