Making a List and Ignoring it Twice

I was really, really, really meaning to get to this earlier tonight, but once again, it is after 11pm and I'm just starting. I don't know what it is with me. I am awesome when it comes to good intentions.  Today I knew I was dragging and I knew the best solution would be to turn in early, grab some extra sleep and come out swinging tomorrow. Did that happen?  Heck no.  So tomorrow, it's probably going to be my impersonation of The Walking Dead: Tuesday edition.

Now that I'm on break from teaching and consequently am working only one job instead of two, I should be catching up on lots of things.  It's time to get my house in order (even a little bit), catch up on the chores, and start wrapping presents.  So far, not much of that is happening, although I managed to bust through some laundry last night, and a super fantastic teenager helped finish it today.  Yes, teenager.  Yes, helped.  I know ... I damn near cried.  I also working toward switching out my seasonal clothes.  It's been cold as Canada here the last couple of weeks, and I have been hunting down warmer clothing on an as-needed basis.  Well, I need them, and I need them now.

I am also working sporadically on archiving my music into a single location (oh, what a PAIN!), and cleaning up my computer hard drive in general.  I need better storage and backup plans, and I'm finally getting around to doing something about it.  It's just a slow, meticulous process.

Increasingly though, I try to do what I can, and I no longer beat myself up when things are left undone.  Tomorrow is another day, and I'm sure my mental and physical to-do list will still be at the ready, waiting for attention.
