Most of us Romance on the Rocks peeps live in the Washington DC area and just experienced the Snowzilla blizzard. We are still dealing with the lingering aftereffects, but we’re slowly digging out.
There will be more digging out once the kids have gone back to school. In the last two weeks, my four have had one day of school. After they are back on schedule, I will dig out from the mounds of snow pants, jackets, dirty clothes and now mismatched gloves. And most importantly I will dig out of the distractions and finish the goals I have set for myself. I’m learning dirty clothes can wait and just like the snow, you only shovel what you need to get the job done.
I’ve always been organized and meticulous about where things go. I’ve had to learn to give a little on that because those silly things only seem to matter to me anyway. I’ve been spending more time on my writing and less on housework and it shows. But I’m learning to dig out of the thinking that I have to get all this done by myself. Writing is no longer a hobby and is hopefully turning into a long and prosperous career.
It’s time to rearrange priorities and decide what needs to be tackled first. It’s time I let the kids start doing more so that I can. That’s how they will learn anyway, right?
When I dig out, great things are going to happen. I’m going to make them happen. I will meet all my goals and more.
Who’s with me and what do you want to accomplish this year?
