washes away the old
(thank you, google images)
I don't do New Year resolutions, but I have said to myself that I should try to take back control of my time.
Perhaps I should say try to make better use of my time.
Do more of the doing and less of the sitting on my bum thinking I should be doing (going, finishing, starting).
Even less of the lying in bed thinking I really should be getting up now, there's things to do.....
Of course, I know those statements will both fall flat on their face with the first hot day.
If I don't have to get up and go to work, I'm likely to just stay where I am, whether it be bed, couch, or chair on the porch.
And take my time about getting things done.
After all, there's no real rush.
The washing can wait, there aren't kids uniforms that need to be cleaned and ready for school.
Cooking can wait, there's no one here constantly asking when's dinner, I'm hungry, can I have something to eat?
Even shopping can wait. If I have stuff for a sandwich and milk for my coffee, I'm fine.
Maybe I'll wander up to the nearest supermarket later.....or tomorrow.
Bills get paid online, I don't even have to go out to do that.
I'm liking this much slower lifestyle where I can choose not to rush around.
On the other hand, if there's something that I'm really keen to do, something I planned and haven't changed my mind on, then I'm up at the crack of dawn getting ready, heading to the bus stop.
Unless the day is going to be too hot and that particular activity can wait for a cooler day.....perhaps in May or June.....
Let's face it, I've gotten lazy.
