That's a suggestion for me, not so much for you unless you've got what I've got—circle vision. Instead of tunnel vision where you see only one thing, you see everything in circles and have to force yourself to focus on the task at hand. Look, something shiny?
I've actually been pretty focused lately trying to handle one task or event at a time, but my brain is actually juggling lots of things. I had a horn lesson yesterday, so I practiced and drove to Mt. Union and paid attention for the hour of instruction (I even played pretty well), but I also interviewed a woman from the local Hospice office and polished up a news piece about it and thought about another news idea—or two or three. And I bought groceries and stopped by the dry cleaners and the gas station and the coffee shop and AAA. And I cooked pork in the slow cooker.
And I thought about all the upcoming trips I'm going to be taking. Eustacia's spring break is next week, but no one else is free, so she and I are going to Disney World just the two of us. We'll be gone nearly a week, and we'll get Mickey's signature for you even if you have only disdain for Disney (you know who you are).
I'll be home for a week after that, but then Daughter No. 1 and I are taking a road trip to Maine during her spring break. Husband has a golf trip planned that week, so again it will be just me and the kid. We have no idea where we're headed yet, but we'll figure it out.
In the middle of all of this, my sister is facing surgery. We're all hopeful for the outcome, but she'll need time to recuperate. She is the one of the four of us who tends to our mother, making sure she gets to the grocery store and doctors' appointments, etc. Mama is an independent and feisty woman, but she can't drive, so my plan is to go to Georgia for a few days to help out with that. I'll do that after the trip to Maine.
So, it's a good thing I've quit my job effective March 30. That's another story I'll tell you later. I'd love to just sit here and talk in circles all day but I have to get to English class to read with the immigrants, and then I have to get my hair cut at 11:00, and then I have to work on a graphics projects that I haven't even given a thought to yet, and I have to think about an article about Facebook while trying not to waste time on Facebook, and then I have to make dinner and practice my horn and read a book I'm only halfway through.
Oh, look! A kitty!
