The To-Do List
Look up there at my masthead. Thanks to Fringe Elements, I had two new banners designed two years ago, and this one’s been sitting around the internet waiting for attention for a long, long time. I finally got to that item on The List and found the code and voila! There’s my handsome prince.
The List is long and always changing. It has come to my attention, through manifestations of stress and fatigue, that The List is overwhelming me. Lately I’ve been blowing off The List, denying its existence, letting it haunt me at night instead of sleeping. My coping mechanisms at the moment include chocolate, shopping, and trying to sleep as much as possible. Oh, and “The Office,” which premiered just in time.
The going has gotten tough, and I am tough, but I am not getting going. I am hunkering down, making sure the children are loved, fed, and clothed, in that order. I am trying to take care of myself. I am reallocating investments – literally and figuratively. To continue with this metaphor, when the stock market and I recover from the crash, we’ll be richer. We’ll all be richer.
