I like to think I am good at multi-tasking.
But maybe not so much.
I rarely make actual lists, but I have them in my head. Today, I am doing my best to mentally tick things off – or transfer them to my list for tomorrow. So far so good!
The third load of laundry is in the dryer. I’ve walked Abby. I submitted my article. I wrote the emails I had on my list. But, oh my, my mental list is still long.
The biggest thing looming is the bones of my new book. I know how to put those bones together but I need hours to do it. And, right now, I have too many other “little things” sitting in my head. Baking – I’ve shifted that to tomorrow. Buying baking supplies – ditto. Doing my hair (blonde – here I come!). That is definitely on the agenda for today.
And I have a list of wants, like practicing the chords I learned on the guitar and that I fear I have already forgotten.
And hiking, damitall! But that’s out for the next few days anyway. I’m focussed on the next snowshoeing trip.
I’m not sure if I feel overwhelmed by all I want to do or if I feel excited – I think excited. I have not felt genuinely thrilled about a new book project for a long time; Today I am eager to get started. And I will, even if it’s later on this evening. What I know about me is that once I’m in, I’m totally in.
But in the meantime, and first, I don’t think it would be terribly wrong of me to do something wild and interesting with my hair. It’s just a new kind of multi-tasking.
I do so love my life – every single minute of every single day.
