Day 2 (Not Very Insightful)

Dear Diary,

Before I start, I should explain that I am a chronic over-user of brackets and exclamation marks…and dots! (See…I told you!)

I’m realising already that this is going to be harder than I thought. It’s 10:00pm and I only just got to this page…thinking its going to be hard to think what to write and yet, as you can see, I thought of things. I think this is all part of the reason I don’t ‘act’ and keep thinking, planning and organising, but never doing anything (well…anything major anyway). It’s because I make too many lists, that are too long, that are in too many places, that have too many goals to achieve. This blog being just another one of them.

But alas, I am going to try and keep this going. I decided that if I can’t get to this blog and write here every day…then tough! I’ll just make it up with two the next day. Or three the next. And they will just be shorter (and of course, sweeter).

I need to make sure that my spaghetti brain which is far too creative for it’s own good, does not creep out onto my computer, desk, kitchen table, note book (bible), calendar etc. in the form of  more ‘To Do Lists’!

So tomorrow I start…get all lists together and make one priority. Surely some things are just not important. The priorities right now are (here’s a list again to make it interesting):

  1. My 50th Birthday Party this weekend. Should be a hoot and with a band and catering, I can sit back an relax…at the party, but not before. Lots to do!
  2. Trip to Italy next August. I know, I know…but my travel agent (and friend) will be leaving her job at the end of next week and can get some good discounts for me (staffies) as well as being very helpful (and honest) with my itinerary.
  3. Christmas is 14 days away. Still have some shopping to do but also plan out the menu, delegate the jobs to all the family, wrap, do cards…you know how it is (if you’re a girl!).
  4. Get a job! Oh, did I forget to mention that I have all this to pay for and no income? Rocky is also out of work as of 9 days ago…Joy!

So, you can see most of my thoughts are about the above 4 things for the next few weeks. My son will be here on Friday with his new Fiancé and my girlfriend will be down from Qld for the weekend and my Party.

Tomorrow I’m off to my renal specialist…more on that later, then I am coming home to gather all lists together and prioritise, and then off to a Christmas Lunch with a networking group I regularly attend.
