Here’s my dilemma–there are at LEAST three things I should be doing right now. To facilitate my focus, they are:
- Arrival package for the JUMC retreat
- Read and critique two stories for my writing group tomorrow night
- Work on the yearbook:
- the most immediate is getting class pix into the pages so they can be proofed
- I also need to adjust the layout to the new page count
- arrange to train people to do the layout
- scan/get help scanning baby pix
- collect baby pix from office
- Work on the blog/website for JUMC church
- Read my chapter for my women’s group tonight
- Go to a meeting at the church for the directory at 11am
I’m tired and it’s only 9am! And I feel guilty for writing this. That’s the problem…I (of course) haven’t been doing my 30 minutes of writing because of everything else that takes priority. I wonder why that is. Why do we (okay if I assume you are the same, Gentle Reader?)
Great…I just lost some stuff! ARGHHHH! What I was saying was that…darn it….I did try to write this morning at 5 am when Elliott was awake, but she wouldn’t have any of that. The power cord was just TOO interesting. And I didn’t write yesterday because she was home with pink eye! Are these valid reasons? Or excuses? Picking up for the housekeeper–the kids–dinner–laundry (don’t get me started!)….all of these things are a distraction.
Thirty minutes isn’t the world. Lord knows I spend a LOT more time (confess) on Facebook. Even though I’ve set my timer, I cannot settle my heart and listen for the words. Again, listening to the still, small voice.
