Another week passes pretty much the same as the last. Not much changes in my daily routine. I don’t go out much due to the increase in Covid. I putter around the house a lot. Do you ever putter? You know, where you spend an hour or more doing an assortment of little things that need doing but individually seem inconsequential. When I putter around the house, I am often amazed at how quickly the time passes but yet how little I seem to have accomplished.
I am also a great procrastinator. I think about doing things but often put them off for another day. Well, this week I finally did one of those things I’ve been putting off. I made an appointment with a new doctor. My previous doctor retired last August. There was a doctor left in his practice I could use when needed but I didn’t want to stay with that one. It is hard to change doctors when you’ve been seeing the same one for over 40 years! That’s a long time. So, I have an appointment with the new guy in a little over a week and I’ll see how it goes. I do feel good that one thing is off my to do list. Now maybe I can attempt something else I’ve been putting off.
You know how it seems to be a “thing” to declutter and reduce your belongings? I really need to do that. Not because it seems to be a fad now but because I have too much stuff. Eventually I think we all realize that we are not going to live forever and we are likely going to have a lot of belongings left when we go. If you are like me you may have been through that scenario with your parents and you know how hard and emotional it can be. I don’t want to make things difficult for my children when I go. I have put this job off because it is a big one. We’ve lived in this house for 44 years and during that time we have also inherited items from my family and Tom’s family. I’m hoping, a little at a time, I can get this started and maybe by writing about it here in my blog I will actually keep up with it. Wish me luck and if anyone has hints that would help, I’m all ears!
Take care and have a good weekend!
