The inside of my head can be a scary place.
For one thing, it’s cluttered. (picture a hoarders house! – no that’s not fair. It isn’t THAT bad!) Picture my workspace. You’ve seen it haven’t you? Okay, just in case, I’ll show you again. (How embarrassing…)
These are old pictures. Trust me on this, it’s worse now. (Jeez, it’s no wonder I can’t sleep when the inside of my brain looks like this!)
Anyway, I have a general idea of where most things are, but they aren’t easy to get to.
So, back to my head. I went in there for a specific reason. I had some stuff I needed to sort out. I dealt with what I needed to deal with, then I got side-tracked and started poking around.
While I was there, it occurred to me that I do not own a nativity set. No kidding. I set out to buy one a long time ago, but I could never find one that was just what I wanted. I had some for sale in the store. Maybe being around them there made it seem less urgent to have one at home. Who knows. At any rate, I waited. And waited. Finally, a few years ago I found one I just loved. But it was pretty expensive, and I talked myself out of it.
Well, that’s just plain dumb. If I added up all the $20 and $30 purchases I’ve made over the years since then, I EASILY could have bought that set. So, I’m going on a search to find it. And if I can’t find just that one, I’m going to settle for one that’s close enough.
Once I got that issue resolved, I starting thinking that “inspire” is not going to work for me as my word this year, after all. As much as I like the IDEA of it, I think my effort will be better spent concentrating on something I NEED rather than something I like. So given the cluttered state of my world (AND my mind) I think I’m going to go with “organize.” The very thought of it terrifies me. Which is probably an indication that it’s a good idea.
So, I’m going to happily and creatively get myself organized. Inside and out. (I can so hear the girls that used to work with me laughing their heads off!!!) HEY! I’ve heard that every once in awhile they teach an old horse a new trick! It could happen…
