Greetings and salutations, friends!
It’s Monday morning, and I go back to the office today and resume my regular, pre stay-at-home order schedule. Our state has reopened somewhat, so this is the next step. We’ve taken some steps there to separate people a bit, keeping space between us, and everyone will be all masked up. So I’m not too worried at the moment. Fingers crossed.
I am making good progress with my book, and behind with filming. I’m not sure there’s much else to say about that.
Well, this is awkward. Now I don’t have anything to say.
Oh, wait. I kind of do. I’m working through my book, as I said, by the Chicken Soup for the Soul guy. My progress is slower than usual (maybe I mentioned this, forgive me if I did) since I’m trying to do the “assignments” as they come up instead of just reading past them, promising myself that I’ll do them later, and then never doing them.
The current “assignment” is to make a list of 101 Goals, share them, then make weekly updates. I’m not sure if I’ll end up doing that publicly here, or privately with friends (who am I kidding? Probably here). One thing I’m sure about is that part of what he’s asking, to make them so specific that they have deadlines, isn’t working for me. I much prefer the advice of writing goals in present tense, as if they’re already here, so I’ll do that instead. My deadlines are just random guesses. I could do the thing where I separate them into years – 1 year goals, 5 year goals, 10 year goals, etc. That might be enough.
And honestly, that “assignment” is a lot like the Start Today journal I already do, listing 10 dreams as if they’ve already happened.
Okay, well, as I said, I’m back at the office today, so I need to get moving. Shower, teeth, getting dressed in dressy clothes I don’t really like.
That’s actually something I noted in the list of things I’m grateful for today, that I realize I deserve better than pants that don’t stay up well and clothing that I’m not in love with. My current pair of summer at-home pants are loose yoga pants that keep falling down, and my favorite jeans haven’t stayed up for years. Normally it’s not a huge problem, but I have been walking more, and the natural result of that is that I need a different size than I have. My inclination is to just keep wearing what I have until it wears out somewhere that’s impossible to fix, but damn. I shouldn’t keep wearing things that don’t fit. I deserve better than that.
I think I could adjust even my work uniform to be more like what I’d prefer to wear, if I put some time into searching for what I want. Then again, my inclination is to just keep wearing what I have until it wears out somewhere that isn’t worth fixing. Thankfully, I think one pair is almost at that point, if not two. Wish me luck finding some nice boot leg or wide leg black jeans.
Oops, look at the time. I’d better get moving.
I hope you have a great day! Heck, I hope I have a great day!
And if you aren’t having a great day, I hope you have a good day.
And if you aren’t having a good day, I hope tomorrow is better.
I *hate* clothes shopping, and now with the pandemic, it’s even more difficult to shop. *sigh* I really, really hope my favorite consignment store doesn’t end up closing during this pandemic.
