A New Day!
Woke at 7am and rushed to get dressed before the dog lost her bladder. See, there is a contest here because when she see me getting dressed she gets excited and tries to jump on the bed and in her excitement, well, creates puddles. My challenge of course is to get dressed while she is snacking or still asleep so that I can rush her outside. I was keeping a robe and some slip on shoes by the bed but the shoes were in danger of getting eatten and the robe was commandeered during yesterday’s flash freeze and besides with the backdoor effectively unfunctional the robe and slipons just doesn’t help much.
Voting day and I’m still uneducated. I can see that the news paper was bought. Today it printed its choices. As you read each one you have to think, “ah.. money for the paper here. ah.. money for the paper on that one. oh yes that benefits the paper.” The paper is for the paper not the people.
I figure by the time I figure out politics I’ll be one of those old people voting on contrived issues from days past and completely out of touch with the generation that matters and the issues that truly concern them. I did not get to update http://august5ballot.blogspot.com/ as much as I would have liked. I will start on the November one sooner.
The puppy wants to romp badly and I am the only one awake. I need to be programming not playing.
I made a decision last night that each evening before I get tired I will consciously decide what the plans for the next day are, pencil them into my planner, and lay out my clothing for the next day. Now, using the Covey system of planning I do my planning a week at a time and review each evening. The mistake I’ve been making has been to try to do my review/looking ahead when I am way too tired to seriously give it any consideration. Unfortunately, I think the weather is causing my plans to be altered.
