Work, school, writing, family, and the beginning of a new semester means I’ve been feeling just a touch overwhelmed. Okay maybe more than a touch. Today I was able to tackle some of the tasks that have been giggling on the corner of my desk because I just haven’t had time to get to them. Now a number of them are done.
My to-do list was over a page on a standard pad of paper. I had notes in the margins and scribbled every which way. Today I rewrote my to-do list and discovered all the things I’d crossed off meant that I was down to about 2/3 of the page. This is a giant leap forward.
I’m exhausted. Partly because I’ve not gone to bed before midnight all week with all my homework and other things I need to take care of and partly because I got a lot done today. It feels good.
I’m trying to savor this good feeling. I am going to breathe and enjoy it for at least thirty seconds. Tonight I have to page through my homework to-do list and hope it isn’t too extensive.
Good news is I discovered on my Kindle that I have the Oxford Dictionary of English. It is an amazing dictionary and quite extensive. I am using it regularly. I also purchased a calendar program which allows me to put in appointments and a to-do list. This has become my closest friend right now. I look at it multiple times a day. It helps keep me on track which is something I definitely need right now.
