Thereís no such thing as a ďroutineĒ day in January, and I should know better than to think in those terms, but today was about as normal a day as Iíve had so far this month. For that to happen on a Monday is kind of encouraging, but I know thereís a long way to go before all those deadlines hit at the end of the month. Still, itís comforting, in a way, to have spent the day doing what Iíve spent so many routine Mondays doing.
In fact, itís more than comforting to know that the payroll is done, this early in the week. Itís downright liberating to have the biggest task I do on a regular basis already complete and in the big envelope, ready to be dropped at the post office tomorrow morning. That will make it a whole lot easier to do the more complex and less familiar tasks that make up about ninety percent of my to-do list just now.
