Alright Thursday. It hit me last night that TOMORROW is Halloween. Trick's on ME this time. I kind of knew it was coming all along. I got very healthy treats to hand out instead of candy. I got Pilot a costume. I got a crap load of pumpkins to decorate our steps. I made a plan for visitors to see US instead of us traipsing around town with Pilot. I'm making yummy apple cider for our visitors. I'm even going to carve up a couple pumpkins to be really, really festive (those of you who know me - might know that Halloween is not all that high on my holiday list).
BUT WHAT I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT HALLOWEEN is that it means there are only two short and very busy months until the year is over. O-VER. Fifty-five days until Christmas. Sixty-some days until 2009. Those two tidbits lit a bit of a fire under my ass and inspired me to make my list of what I want to accomplish before the year is over. Not so much ACCOMPLISH, but what path I want to clear a space for as 2008 closes... Did I do myself proud in 2008? Really? I'm going to be taking the next two or three days to do a SELF-ASSESSMENT of sorts to get back on track and finish with a little bit more focus.
Today: I had time yesterday (while BabaLuba & Pilot were playing noisy band) to organize my TO-DO lists and clear my head a bit... that's going to make attacking the list more productive. I needed that. I also feel like I need to get a little more productive with myself. Pilot is supposed to be with the Nanny today and we're experiencing a little confusion on that front so I guess I'll just have to wait and see what happens. The basement needs cleaning up after the construction. The laundry. This, that and the other thing. I'm motivated today to GET ON IT.
The year is slipping away - make it happen. I'm on fire. Let's do this. GO!
