perils with writing and whatnot
When I read Suzanne’s post for the 52-week project last Thursday, I was skeptical on what I could do for my own time management. I wrote a comment to her post somewhat to the effect of, “Time is what I have an abundance of. Enough so that if I fool around for half the day, I still have plenty of time to get things done.”
Then I thought a little harder on it this weekend. There is more that I can do with my time — even despite the limitations of mobility I have.
During most of the time that I’ve been married to Hubby (24+ years), I’ve left his stuff alone, at least for the most part. But also, all during this time, this has been one of the sore spots in our relationship. Mind you, we don’t fight very often. Neither of us get any kick out of that sort of thing. Still, there are times when I’m biting my tongue so I won’t say something about where he puts and leaves his stuff.
Today, while I was reading blog post, it hit me. If we haven’t actually fought about this subject, if handled right, we never will fight about it. I can do something about his stuff and not leave it up to him to do it. After all, I’m a stay-at-home wife with kids grown and on their own. I have the time to do this. It’ll be my distraction from my writing project when I’m feeling frustrated. Physical work, no matter how small is good for getting cobwebs out of the brain.
What’s more, by doing this chore, I’ll like my home better. This may spark some creativity in my old rusty noggin. I know that some writers can work in a mess, in fact may even work better. Unfortunately, I’m not one of those. I’m happier all the way around being a neat freak.
So this week’s assignment for me will be to get into the routine of getting into Hubby’s stuff and organizing it. 😛
