New Attitude

My I will get to that later attitude needs to stop.

My next challenge is to get this paperwork in check at the house and get a lot cleaned up.  I am going to need to have Hubby by my side when I do that.   He still has a mentality that I will take care of it.  When things fall apart due to his not understanding what I mean or I don’t understand what he meant.  It can be a frustrating adventure at best, and a tedious one but we need to work together to get it done.   It was a habit of mine to keep a “to do list” for the day. 

Planning what needs to be accomplish for that day.  A former activity that was a diligent practice but for a while I have developed the I will get to it later attitude , the results is that it never gets done.

When there is a list of 20 or more things that needs to be done and I cannot count on the support of the hubby it enables the I will get to it later attitude.  Also if I get busy or engulfed in what I am doing, such as enjoying hanging out with my friend I get carried on the wave and enjoyment and I just ride the wave.  Once the wave has stop that is when I think about what I need to get done.  Usually I have run out of hours needed to get it done.  

This results in a longer list for the next day and no motivation to get it done.  Then I hear myself say “ I will get to that is a minute….. maybe 20 minutes……. 2 hours…….tomorrow."

Right Tomorrow never comes just as the saying goes.  Unfortunately when this happens I do not think it through,  it just does not come to mind.  Then I am overwhelmed with a lot of stuff that needs to be done but that does not get accomplished.

I have to start my day by looking at my to do list.  Set  items up in order of important  A very important B necessary, C and be delay  check them off as I complete them and then   end my day by creating a new  to do list.   

This will be a challenge for me but the additional challenge will be to get hubby involved in accomplishing the list and help with getting it accomplished.  You know it will help us both to know what is going on and how we can accomplish things together.

S Sew Together Session  May 27, 28!
It's great when you are with friends of like mind who love the same things you do.  Well this weekend time to capitalize on that idea.
Time to Sew Together!!
I sent out the invites actually it was a series of text and phone calls and created a buzz for myself that is very uplifting!  I am so excited. 
The way I have envision this;  everyone will come over about 6 to 7 people and bring what ever project they are working on and sew in the same room together.  I just love this idea!   
JN is going to make a apron for her make up job.  She was asked to do the make for the  brothers who will be on screen at our Regional Convention!  I am so happy for her.   AA will be making curtains she is getting things ready  for her redecorating month. She said for us not to look for her in June because that is the time she set aside to redecorate her house and curtains are a big part of it.

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…
