Apparently we have a semi-plan. In nineteen days we may well be jetting back from New Zealand to the USA. If all the things that are dancing around up in the air neatly align and fall into place in the Tetris stylee, then we are indeed out of here. We will know in eight days if it’s time to go, and if it is, we will have eleven days to figure everything out. Right now it seems very doable, very matter of fact even, but I can feel a vague sense of panic circling in the periphery in a slightly sinister fashion.
So what is there to do to keep the panic at bay but make lists? And in the absence of enough mental focus to make the actual lists, I’m going to compile my uber-list of things that I will need to make lists about right here. And if the first step in getting help is admitting that you have a problem, then I’m going to come out with my biggest problem right now and get it into the open. It is the second of January, 2014 and I am delighted to say that this year I do indeed have in my possession the ultimate diary/ planner/ journal. It’ll probably make my life this year amazing just by it’s shear existence. But, alas, I do not have the correct pen. I have pens, yes, but none of them are quite perfect enough to write in the diary. So the planner is still pristine.
My name is Helen and I have a stationery-centered procrastination problem.
Ah, much better. Back to the matter at hand. Lists. Yes. Here we go.
MAKING THE HOUSE (WHEREVER IT MAY BE) A HOME:
That’s all I can think of for now. So, I think it’s obvious that I need to prioritise. So first thing tomorrow, come what may, I’m definitely going to go on a pen-hunt. Those goals for the year aren’t going to write themselves.
