I am working on making a few changes. some are a long time coming. some, not so much.
I am going to go to sleep earlier. so I can get up and walk TheDog before work instead of after, since it gets dark so early. (and she thinks I've been abusing her with the short walks.)
I am going to stop jumping to conclusions. I have been incorrect in my jumping. well, once or twice. and I don't like being wrong, ever. (although, yes, I can admit when I am.)
I am going to send holiday cards this year. really. not just talk about it. or buy the cards. I'm going to actually write in them and send them.
I am going to finish my gift shopping early this year. at least by noon on Christmas Eve, since my family's going to a football game that afternoon.
I am going to have everything together before my holiday party. I want to enjoy my guests this year instead of running around finishing up the preparations as they arrive.
and I'm going to prioritize. work can wait. coffee with friends, birthday celebrations, and important conversations can't.
now, I'm off to sleep. there's a blonde dog with a leash that is going to wake me up at the crack of dawn.
