It was one of those days when I ran out of easy things to do and had to hit the hard stuff. I always do the simple tasks, which are for some reason also my favorites, before I try to tackle anything more stressful or strenuous. Thatís the only way to be sure I can cross multiple items off my to-do list.
By Friday, all the fun items on the list are pretty much crossed out, and whatís left is what Iíve been putting off all week. Today I was shocked to learn that the things I put off turned out to be easier than the ones Iíd been working on. Iíd dreaded opening the kennel mail, because every time I do it forces me to make phone calls and ask questions. I might be part-owner of The Kennel, but I havenít a clue about most of the day-to-day details of the operation.
But everything in that pile of mail was simple and straightforward, and I didnít have to talk to anyone or even do much work. And the few pieces that I didnít know what to do with I buried under another pile for another time. So everything is cool.
Thereís been a question about insurance hanging over me for weeks, months even. One question is never enough with the insurance company, though. It always leads to a whole cornucopia of questions spilling out over each other. You can see why Iíve been putting it off. This morning I mentioned it to Julie, and she said, ďLet me handle it.Ē
The four sweetest words Iíve ever heard.
So I didnít wear myself out with work this Friday after all. I wore myself out with something, because I fell asleep sitting upright two or three times. But I feel pretty good heading into the weekend with several more items crossed of my to-do list, even though I didnít have to do much work to get through them. Everything is totally cool.
