My friend asked me last week if I could return the USB I borrowed. I said of course!
What I was thinking though is this: “Crap, crap, crap! Where is that little thing?”
You see, there are piles and piles around here because in real life transition time isn’t really a thing. Life changing abruptly? Cool, prioritize and deal. Waiting for the perfect time to [insert literally anything here] and it will never happen.
So right now my priorities since leaving the news room was getting really hands on with the boys’ day-to-day lives to include long walks, teaching Jake to ride his bike, the stopping and studying of bugs (ew!), lots of trips to the library (yay!), learning about Pokémon (ugh!), cooking together (soooo slow but also worth it!), hosting play dates (there’s some book material!), getting involved with the parent club, studying Spanish, longer bedtime reading and snuggles and all kinds of other awesomeness.
Oh yeah, also, there’s been some unawesome stuff that’s taking up a lot of time but I trust that will transform into future awesomeness so it’s all good.
Anyway … ironically, this friend to whom the aforementioned missing USB belongs happens to also have her own life-improvement company called Neat Street Organizing so I was determined to deliver it to her this week as promised.
She’s so good, she even inspires uncluttering sprees unintentionally: Because dang if I didn’t get some of those piles plowed through in search of the missing USB.
A full recycling bin, one Goodwill load and some labeled files later, I found it.
Honestly one thing getting in the way of my mission to Organize Everything is just simply accepting that it’s a process and staying the course. It helps to be motivated by something like avoiding mortification.
I’m thankful for the nudge, because I probably would’ve waited to start sorting this stuff for … ever.
I also found a couple things I thought I’d taken care of … Must read that Getting Things Done book!
In other news, I got a Fitbit for Mother’s Day, by request – which I mention because, you know, that kind of gift could go sideways real quick like.
I am totally geeking out on that thing, but I accidentally created a monster. Two of them. You probably know where I’m going with that.
Until next time,
