Today is the start of a new chapter of my life. For those of you who don't know, I left Junior Achievement. It was just time for me to move on to something else. What is the "else," you ask? Right now, I'm leaving that open. I'm not the kind of person who jumps right from one job to another -- I like to take time off to do miscellaneous things and decide what I want to do next. Last week was officially my first week off. But it was spring break week for Zachary, and Jason took the week off as well, so last week didn't really count. Now that they are back to school and work, this is really my first week of freedom. And what's the first thing I decided to do? Start a blog.
Last night I had a hard time sleeping. This is unusual for me, but my head was just spinning with ideas about projects I could do. That's what I get for reading lots of decorating blogs right before bed, I guess.
Unfortunately I tend to have lots of project ideas in my head (or on lists -- I love making lists) and I even start several projects, but I have a hard time completing one (or two) projects before I start another one (or two or ten). Just ask Jason -- it drives him nuts.
I don't want to squander my new-found freedom, though. Yes, I'll find plenty of time to watch TV. Folding laundry? Yep, can watch TV while I do that. Cleaning? Yep -- even a TV to watch while cleaning the bathroom. But I don't want my goal each day to be how many hours of recordings I can knock off our DVR. I want to actually get things done, so I can feel a sense of accomplishment with myself. Oh, and it will keep Jason off my back too. :)
What will I do today, on my first day of freedom? I think I'll start making my list.
