This is one of those days when I donâ€™t seem to be able to get my mind in gear.Â Sleep was fine â€“ and I got plenty of it.Â The house wasnâ€™t trashed when I got up, so I didnâ€™t start the day behind.Â The weather is even nice.
I would like to blame the days â€“ they are getting shorter you know (probably caused by global warming), but the truth is I run into this situation every now and then.Â Itâ€™s particularly familiar when things have been running smoothly and right on track.Â Then comes the day when I just canâ€™t get going, so I donâ€™t.Â Things fall behind, projects are overdue, and my muse feels neglected.
Today is not a day that I can stay in a rut.Â I have to get it together because I have company coming in just a few hours.Â Before then, I need to straighten the house (the regularly scheduled maintenance activities) and finish my work.Â There isnâ€™t time to sit around psyching myself up so that I donâ€™t sit around.Â Maybe that is the key â€“ always have something planned that involves other people and then I donâ€™t have an excuse for NOT doing.
And the wheel just keeps on spinning. . .
