So it’s February and I am stuck in an ongoing discussion with myself on how many tabs a reasonable person would keep open at all times, and whether closing any of them will do me more harm or good. I just counted 19 and that’s after closing a couple I figured I could do without. Seriously, this winter blizzard weather has me planning ahead and focusing less on today and more on tomorrow. Lighter times, warmer times, more active times. You know the drill.
Still, I have been picking up a lot of the things I started and trying to focus more on getting things done rather than starting new projects on top of more projects. Such as the baby mittens I wanted to get done for my nephew for Christmas. Or the taxes I should have filed last weekend and the four books I’m a couple pages in. One of the most satisfying things I get to do at work is to check of the box after fulfilling a task. One little click and the line of traffic disappears from my working dashboard. Lately I have been finding myself wanting to track my time when I do mundane tasks at home, like dishes or watering my plants, and while this makes no sense at all, allowing myself to check items off a tangible to-do list never hurt.
So here is to my last month as twentythree and considering the new year to start as of three weeks from now. Let’s wrap up those unfinished projects, pay off the last bit of that credit card bill and start life as twentyfour with a fresh slate.
