I frequently tease Josh about his lack of focus when it comes to finishing tasks. While he can sit and pore over detailed spreadsheets and orchestrate the movements of heavy equipment and materials with with fluidity of a orchestra conductor, he lacks a certain attention to detail when it comes to putting away paint brushes or socks.
I tease him about this often and yet here I am this morning, in a childless house, unable to tackle any of the oh so numerous items that need to be accomplished by 1 p.m.
The busy season is upon us and our house is turned upside down. Not a good combination. After living here for 3 years, we’re finally reached a calm in the storm and have two able bodied adults and a bit of time to dedicate to hour projects. But let no one fool you – when there are two little hurricanes spinning in your home, it takes much more than spare time to get tasks done. Motivation and focus are also key.
Now, I have the motivation. But the focus?
Not so much.
I sat down to write a to-do list and here I am, writing a blog post.
Can someone stage an intervention?
Or at least come and wipe down baseboards and ceiling fans?
Do people actually make a point to wipe down baseboards and ceiling fans on a regular basis?
