More than three times a week I find myself shoes still on and jacket fully zipped admits a project I never intended on doing. I am easily distracted.
For example, today I had grandiose (and necessary) plans for the day. Here are the things I did not plan on doing, but throughly exercised:
1) Washing my sheets (to avoid washing my clothes).
2) Walking the loop three times with a dear friend.
3) Buying a pumpkin spice latte and fresh apples at a quaint farmers market.
4) Taking a two-hour nap.
5) Six missed calls.
5) Going to the library and checking-out book on “the meaning of sex” (classic grad school).
6) #5 was nicely was nicely pared with a well-attended parents banquet, in which I took my “theory of sex” books to a dessert table and snagged a few for the road.
7) Spending forty-five minutes on a family’s blog, which left me laughing at my computer and looking forward to family life. Naturally, I was shoes on, jacket zipped.
And here I am, blogging about my distractibility. Jacket is off. Shoes are still on. Baby stepping towards focus.
