For the next year, starting on January 5th, I’m going to be working my way through Regina Leeds’ organizing programs: One Year to an Organized Life and One Year to an Organized Work Life. I suspect it’s not considered ideal to do both programs at once, but my work life and my personal life are so intertwined that it doesn’t make sense to attempt to organize one and not the other.
Today is proving to be tough. I had a bit of a melt down after my doctor’s appointment. I’m sort of cut loose, but not cleared to drive. . . he’s leaving that for my other doctor to do. Katie has been crying most of the day. She is calmer when I wear her, but I was only cleared today to do it, and even with the Ergo carrier, I have to take it easy on my back and work up to using it.
Tonight, Ben woke up from a sound sleep coughing and complaining that his tummy hurts. He doesn’t sound great, so out came the tylenol and the Infant VapoRub to make him feel better. Here’s hoping that we don’t all catch whatever he has. He’s going to hate being kept away from Katie, but it will have to be done so we aren’t all wiped out.
I wanted to wish you the best of luck this year. Following both of my books simultaneously is a tall order. IF you feel overwhelmed, put “Work” away for a few days or weeks and make “One Year” your bible.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
And above all else, remember to breathe!
Happy New Year and warm wishes for a successful year.
Thanks so much. I’m learning a lot about myself and how I ended up having so much trouble organizing my time already. This seems like the right thing to be doing now.
