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.

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

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…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
