A Comedy of Errors

For reasons you'll soon understand, I'm barely coherent enough to think, let alone write. I had a few ideas for posts to write, but since I don't currently have the wherewithal to do them justice, a summary of the past 24 hours of my life will hopefully give you a bit of entertainment.

10:00am

It's the day before the cruise, which means that I have a bunch of stuff that needs to get done before I leave the states for a month. As I slide out of REM sleep I miraculously remember that today is the last day I can ship my failing RV batteries back for warranty service. Each one weighs 70 pounds.

Early On a Sunday Morning

On Where Pianos Roam

 

It's a chilly Nashville morning as I write this even as soft sunlight pours through my window.  As I've mentioned in several of my recent posts, I've been doing a whole bit of de-cluttering in my life.  This has mostly applied to various physical spaces like my closet, bedroom, car, and so forth; however, I've also been trying to do so in the way I carry out my day.

For most of my life, I've been the kind of person who has had a gargantuan to-do list.  It would be an endless stream of tasks connected to multiple facets of my existence.  After one item would be completed, another one would roll right on in.  I've been thinking about this a lot over the past few weeks, and I've decided that, in spite of the productiveness, it is still not all that gratifying.  

It feels no different than doing the same thing over and over again.  The actual tasks might all be different from each other, but the intention is all the same--just to get something done.  For me, this has become monotonous especially because, in my own life, there is no end to all of the things I could be doing.  

So, I've decided that from now one, excluding (and occasionally including) time-sensitive tasks or ones that affect other people, I am only going to focus on getting two or three important things done each day.  I've actually been doing this now over the last two weeks, and I really love it.
