uh oh

I'm sure most of us have heard the quote "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result."

Today I had a little wake up call, regarding this very thing! Hubs and I spent this morning drawing up a rough plan about our impending move - what we wanted to sort through, toss, keep, donate to charity, put onto Ebay etc. We then split up and started our various tasks - his to sort out the china cabinet and mine to start sorting out the books in the bookcase. Now as many of you know I love to read and often I like to read so much that I can purchase a book and forget all about it - I've usually got so much on the go. Therein lies my biggest issue - time management and organization. I've obviously tried to address it many times over the years because I managed to pull out (hangs head in shame), FIVE books on organizing your life/house etc and a book on PROCRASTINATION. I can just see Shelley pulling this one up on her reader and pissing her pants. Hubs and I spent the better part of the afternoon laughing about it, but deep down I was somewhat embarrassed. Anyway I have removed a ton of books ready to be donated to charity, Ebayed etc. If anyone wants a good book on time management for small dollars, get in touch NOW! New Year's Resolution is to employ a bit more discipline in getting tasks done, particularly if they're unpleasant!

Still no training to speak of - had another big sleep in today (I've been doing a few 11 and 12 hour sleeps) but I'm finally beginning to feel like I want to do something. I'm thinking of a bit of running and stretching tomorrow. We're all settling back into a more normal eating pattern which is nice after four days of "fend for yourself" - enjoyed grilled salmon, potatoes and a big bunch of greens for dinner tonight and I feel satisfied and content.

I am moving right now..pain.

However, it's a beginning of something amazing for me..and I hope the same to you as well.

Sleep is the most important thing for me. I am glad that you're giving yourself that time to rest.

Happy New Year!
