When it is time to re-do the LIST
Over the Back Fence:
When someone called yesterday she said she was so happy to see how well things are going for me.
"I read your Facebook"
Let me tell you - everything you read on Facebook is not always the real story.
Take today for instance:
while I could tell about the three story gigs I am excited about for next week - which is true by the way - -
but also - - there is water in the basement and every plumber I call is too busy;
the dog peed on the freshly professionally cleaned carpet where there are permanent dog stains already;
a guy is in my attic cutting holes in the roof;
I have an emergency appointment with the dentist and my to do list is out of control.
I woke up this morning hearing my voice calling out for Jim. My voice echoed in the house. It sounded so strange.
Another very smart friend told me, "Sounds to me like you are calling out because you need some help." A simple observation that is helping me to grapple with it.
I'm remaking my list.
Sometimes the most important thing is to re-order your priorities.
Stall the emergencies if you can.
Sounds like good advice doesn't it.
It is the kind of thing Jim would have said - -
I hope it works.
