I love traveling and generally being out of the house. It's part of my Sagittarius nature. Experiencing the world around me that's different than the usual world around me. There is so much out there to explore and learn about and I want to see it all. Maybe even the good parts twice.
I've been fortunate enough to do lots of traveling this fall. First to Dawn's wedding in Virginia in late September. A month later, to South Carolina for a trauma conference. After spending a few days home, off again earlier this month for vacation (and a little campaigning) in Florida. And it has been a blast.
Yet, I realize I need some down time. Some home time. Some routine.
Piles of mail and surgical journals have stacked up on my kitchen island. (I've managed to pull out bills and pay them but the rest...)
I'm sorely behind in Project Life. I anticipated this and signed up for Becky Higgins' class "Project Real Life," hoping this would keep me more on track. But it hasn't and somehow I feel doubly behind (yes, I realize the number of weeks is the same).
I haven't touched my French lessons in weeks.
How could I have possibly gotten out the habit of going to the gym?!?
The holidays are looming frighteningly close on the horizon and I'm no where near ready for them. Six weeks ago, I vowed to myself that I would be better prepared for them this year so I could truly enjoy them without being so stressed. I fear that will not happen.
This weekend, it's time to buckle down. Get shit done. Get organized. Get my routine on.
