The End of NaBloPoMo

I had a semi-eloquent post planned about my dueling feelings about NaBloPoMo: the incredible satisfaction of completing it versus the annoyance that the issues I post about now are the same issues that I posted about a year ago for NaBloPoMo 2008: organizing my house, food/weight/exercise issues, money management, and trying to be more organized so that I have more free time. I keep thinking that at some point I will “catch up” and then my home, weight, finances and time management will be perfect. But I suspect that I will always be working on those issues. Sigh.

So, I’ll end on a positive. I was running early for work today so I decided to swing into the grocery store to pick up a couple things. I successfully avoided the donut display AND the starbucks counter, saving me un-necessary calories and some money. Then as I was checking out, I glanced into the trash can next to the self-check out and found a coupon in there for the brand of beans that I typically buy. Oh yeah, you know I reached into the trashcan and pulled it out! (It was a pretty clean trash can – evidently put there for people to put their unwanted receipts into.)

Until next year !

Does this mean you haven't yet read the book I gave you? Because it's going to solve all the time management and organization problems. If you follow it.

I HAVE read it up to chapter 3 and have been working on my "reception area.: But she only allocates one morning before work to decluttering your clothes closet (including laundry and dry-cleaning) so she moves a little faster than I am able to. I have allocated Wednesday afternoon to my closet, though !

What is this book? It sounds like I might need to read it?

its like when you read your journals from, like, 8 years ago and you're still writing about the same stuff......seriously, gives me new meaning to "breaking the cycle" and "be the change you want to see in the world"!
