A sad state of affairs

Remember back on October 30, when I was talking about unfinished business?  Well... a lot of it is still unfinished.

The ones in green are the ones that were great ideas at the time but got kiboshed for whatever reason. The ones in red are DONE.  And I am proud of the ones I got finished, although I think I could have possibly accomplished a couple of other things, now that I look at the list again.

I'm on a more-or-less constant quest to find more minutes in the day; to squeeze in just a little bit more living before I have to go to bed; and to wring as much joy and fun out of each day as I possibly can.  A lot of times, my satisfaction comes from getting things accomplished, which is why this list of unfinished projects bugs the living hell out of me.  So, because I'm completely contrary, I'm going to ADD to this list, and see how many I can knock off by the end of the year.  Yes, I know that's only 13 short days away - but knowing that an entirely new year (and decade, for me) starts in two weeks... well, that's a pretty powerful motivator.

I'm under no illusions that I can do ALL of this stuff - after all, I do have a day job.  However, it definitely won't get done if it's not on a list right in front of my nose.  So the list is going up right beside my "DO EPIC SHIT" resolution.  I'll be unstoppable!!

See how I left room for one more thing?  JUST IN CASE.

Okay, I gotta go.  I have a lot to do.

Love Shelley!


  1. i love your list, epic yes, i make lists for everything....

  2. that "one more thing"... is -for sure- a visit with me (look, it will fit perfect in that little spot), and you might as well just colour it RED right off the hop, because IT. IS. HAPPENING!! (Oh and then {if there was room} you could add "FINISH WRITING LIST" in red as well!!) So glad I stopped by to see what you have been up to, love the painting!!


I would love to hear what you think...
