Big on intentions, slow on progress

I volunteer for a couple of organizations in a couple of capacities. One position is directly related to my former work, another is because no one else wanted to do it and I felt like I could do it.

Unfortunately I haven't been keeping up with these jobs, and they are weighing on me like a house. One thing I started in November and dropped all together - the paperwork somewhere on the tower of papers on my desk - starting back up would require me to clear off my desk. In fact I am typing this on my laptop at the kitchen table since I have too much stuff cluttering the area where it lives.

Now it's a beautiful day. I have a meeting with the co-presidents of this organization at 1pm. Her e-mail said, "My blackberry says that we are meeting at 1pm on Thursday." I wanted to tell her blackberry that I don't feel like meeting, but I responded that I'd be there. That should give me plenty of time to finish what I should have done 3 weeks ago (3 months ago???) but here I sit typing my blog and trying to figure out how long it will take me to do the dishes, weed in the sun and go for a short run with the dog. Does that leave enough time? And even though I have showered already this morning, Blackberry-girl is big into hair, make-up and nails, so if I do any of the outdoor plans, I'll have to fit in a 2n shower and 10 minutes for my hair/make-up.

I can't wait for everything to wind down and I kiss this stuff good-bye until the fall.

T said this morning that he is looking forward to retiring and moving to Hawaii. I don't need to move that far. I just need to change my present where I say no to stuff like this. I've never been one to embrace the "just say no" culture. Yes, yes, yes, yes is what comes naturally to me.

Can I do the dishes, laundry, weed, run AND write the papers I need to bring for later today?

YES!

If I say that enough and finish this blog, then I might just be able to pull it all off.
