Welcome to 2022. And to start the year off this blog post is strange yet true. While yes it was written a while back it still remains the truth to how I operate.
Just in case you have ever wondered what it’s like to be me, here is a morning in my life:
Take son to school
Get home and start a cup of tea
Decide to go to the bathroom
Then think I’m going to practice my Latin routine and so I work up a sweat doing that
Then see mess on the floor so pick that up
Remember the cup of tea
Decide to make toast too and then eat the toast with my tea
Remember my supplements so take those too
Think Need to feed the dogs
Remember I was tidying my floor so grab the vacuum
Vacuum the bedroom and ensuite
Decide to dust too
Vacuum again because of dust
Take my book down to my creative space
Get sidetracked reading information on my desk
Put the vacuum away
Decide to clean the bathroom vanity then the toilet
Go to the laundry to get cleaning stuff but decide to do the cat litter tray
Think I need to feed the dogs
Remember I was going to do my bathroom so go back to doing that
Realise I need to do laundry so I put that on
Check on my plants, get sidetracked thinking how proud of myself I am with the fact they are still alive
Still need to feed dogs
Decide to put oils in my diffuser
Get sidetracked looking at them all and deciding what I want to use
Check on deliveries online to see when they are arriving
Pick up a book and get under a blanket to start reading it because it’s freezing
Then remember I need to check my blog posts
Set more posts to publish
Remember I still need to feed the dogs
Yet I’m here writing this post…
Who else operates this way?
Who else can never just start one thing and do it until it’s finished and does a million things in between?
I think this is why to-do lists help so much.
And yet I will write them and then not follow them too.
Sometimes I wonder how I have made it this far in life?
Some people would label this as some sort of on the spectrum behavior and say I should get tested. But personally I don’t see how getting tested for something I’ve done my whole life will make any difference to how I live my life now. Maybe as a child it may have made some difference but I’ve learned to live with my quirks of behavior so I don’t believe it would make any difference now.
Now I better go feed the dogs haha
