We've got a lot of them here in my re-purposed Old Town rental property. I bought this little nest in 1989 and moved back into it after my marriage ended. I'm a do it yourselfer of average skill but that's not the challenge.
ADD people can hang moulding and paint. But waning focus and energy, especially when the seduction of another "thing" comes along, makes us not the best project managers or task finishers. Fart noises and off-colour jokes though, remain our rapid synapse forte'. Keep that in mind as you consider the go/no go on inviting us to your holiday parties.
Shut up. I’d rather read books. And until someone is present who demands that these little odds and ends be completed, I’ll still choose reading.
Non-work reading along with the reading I do to attend better to my soul and spirit (I loathe most self-help books) is crucial for my active mind. It girds me against burnout which one is prone to if your profession involves mind twisting subjects like healthcare economics.
My mind cleansing fun last night before bed (I usually read two paragraphs before falling into REM sleep) was a see-saw perusal of Hemingway in Paris, courtesy of A Moveable Feast and Scottie…The Daughter of… . It was interesting to gander snippets of Paris through different eyes but during similar times tinged with different circumstances of the attendees through whose eyes I walked Paris.
So WHO in their right mind would opt for picking up scattered clothing from my manic unpack-repack activity of last Sunday as I jettisoned my chattel from Portland/Santa Monica and readied myself for Jacksonville Florida? When you could take the journey through the books that I described above. And yes, things will be spic and span by this afternoon. I have a woman coming over. Her name is LFG and she wants a Christmas tree and one she shall have.
So I’m sure, at some point, these unfinished things will find their way to completion. But for now they don’t bother me and until they bother someone else who matters, I’m gonna read.
Oh, and PS…LFG’s room continues to be a nice little work in progress.
