No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

There's Always Something to be Done

"One never notices what has been done; one can only see what remains to be done." ~Marie Curie

This has been the story of my life.

For as long as I can remember I ALWAYS saw what was left to be done instead of what had been accomplished.

Do any of you have this problem?

It's no wonder I am tired all the time because I'm trying to take care of the undone stuff. Damn undone stuff!

I no sooner get some things done and it hits me in the face all the other stuff waiting my attention.

As much as I'm gruffing about the undone stuff, I can see what I have accomplished. There is one room in my house where there is basically nothing to do. That room is the bathroom. I do need to sweep daily the litter Bailey has spread about as he digs his fallout shelter. One I take care of the floor mat and get the sweeping done, that room is done and I can see it.

The rest of the rooms are influx. I guess this is why I have a rolling to do list. It keeps me on track. But the nice thing about it is I can do other things out of order because they speak to me to be done.

One of those rooms is my sanctuary. I want to clean out that last wall and reorganize my closet. A friend just gifted me a boom box and I need to set it up and to get my art area set up. My dresser needs to have the mirror secured to the base. At this point there is no room to do the work.

Yes, the sanctuary has become that room of the items that have the name "I don't know where I belong." What a sorry state for those belongings.

As I type this, I can see the new photos we have placed on the wall and make our apartment more of a home. Maybe we are feeling like we can actually move in.

I encourage all of you to stop and look at what you have accomplished in your world. It is good stuff and you are doing well. I'm proud of each and every one of you.
