You asked…
Sooooo, I’ve been on this time management kick lately on my quest to make the most out of my 24 hours and attempt to be ultra-productive.
I’ve literally been tracking every move I make every breath I take and feeling like a dog chasing its own tail! This time of year is so busy for me. It’s controlled chaos that needs a little less chaos and A LOT more control!
My issue is, I’m a jumper. I jump from one project to the next and before I know it I’ve got a bazillion projects started and only a few finished. Then, I get overwhelmed and bury my head in a vat of wine until about a week before everything is due and then I’m like a crazy woman trying to get everything done last minute!
Some people call this procrastination.
My dr. calls it adult ADHD.
I call it fucking frustrating!
So, day 1 of chasing my own tail involved setting timers and journaling notes from 5am to about 3pm then my time management mojo said fuck this, I’m out. I seriously could not account for one more nanosecond of my life!
I ended this day with 10 hours of controlled chaos. Go me!
I have zero plans for the weekend and by zero I mean Z-E-R-O. I’m doing absolutely nothing. For the most part, I’m unplugging. I’ll get my blog posts in and visit all of you but my phone will be off and I will be spending many, many, many hours outside. My indoor time will be split between my headphones, great music and creating AND/OR silence, hot tea and a great book.
What about you?
Do you ever just unplug and chill?
What are YOUR plans for the weekend??
I hope you can do something spectacular and can make some spectacular memories. Spectacular memories are good for the soul.
MIMI’S QUOTE FOR THE DAY –

THANKFUL THURSDAY – ALL AT ONCE

In 2 days we will usher in autumn. It hardly seems possible because I know I was just sweating away ten pounds a day with all of the flippin’ heat we’ve had!
And still, it did nothing for my fat ass.
So, with a kiss and a smile or a kick in the pants and a shove down the stairs – most likely the latter. –
I wave goodbye to all things summer 2 days early and with that, I begin my “thankful” list.
#1 – I am thankful that I’ll be able to see again after all of the summer eye bleaching moments I experienced.

Okay, maybe not this exactly but pretty close.
#2 – I’m thankful that the cooler temps of fall will make other people’s deodorant appear as tho it’s actually working.
#3 – I’m thankful that everywhere I go now it will smell like pies and cookies baking!
I am soooo serious about this thankful list.
The number of people wandering around in dental floss when what they really needed was a circus tent was astounding!
It’s like they all got dressed in the dark!
disclaimer: I’m not “fat shaming” I’m just saying. Try putting on a bathing suit that fits.

And the stinky, sweaty, smelling people that seemed to always be in line right in front of me or right behind me??? Ugh. Seriously? Do you have nasal issues?? You can’t smell your own funk??
Sadly, there aren’t enough pumpkin spiced candles or pies to be baked that can get rid of the funk.
I just went over my thankful list and just in case you were wondering if it’s possible to be bitchy and thankful at the same time. It is.

I hope you have much to be thankful for today even if it’s bitchy thanks.
You know I always want to hear about it so drop your thankfuls in the comments below and have an amazing ‘Thankful Thursday!’
