Appreciating the Gift of Time

So I left my job on March 2, 2012. The hours were beyond crazy and I just had to go. The hours were so long (6:30AM) and so crazy (until 8, 9 sometimes 10PM and several Saturdays!!) that I just had to go.

I can't believe the small things that went undone. Really small things that take no time at all, such as putting oil in the reed diffuser. Seriously, I was just too tired get to them and/or too foggy to realize that they still needed doing.

So here is the abbreviated "to-do" list for the time I will be off.

1. Finish Repeat's Counted Cross Stitch (done and at the framers! YAY!!)

2. Finish Baby Girl's Quilt

3. Choose and chart Shortie's Cross Stitch

4. Vacuum

5. Fill the reed diffusers

6. Rearrange the plants

7. Get rid of all the shoes I'm not wearing (Freecycled! YAY!)

8. Find the Area Community Center

9. Make two recipes from my new (Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone - Deborah Madison) cookbook

10. Complete the paperwork for all kinds of stuff (this could fill a Thursday Thirteen List of its own!)

11. Get an eye exam (done); physical (done); mammogram (done); pap (done)

12. Clear out the closet

13. Go to the Cleaners (I discovered that if I take everything that really needs to go I will inadvertently fulfill number 6 "clear out the closet" sigh)

Getting started again

I can't believe that an entire year has gone by without a word! I just can't believe it!

I know how it happened...I said I don't have time; I said I can't "word" it right; I "forgot".

I regret the time, ideas, sentiments, lost or at least not written down.

It was an interesting, busy year. Maybe, I'll do "flashbacks" or something. But for now, I just have to get moving/writing for this year -- and do better...much better. Clearly.
