Upcoming Action Face
Last week, I was feeling low. Illness does that. And brooding. Fortunately, a week can do wonders. After spending the last few days working hard, getting back on the eBay taskset, and having a handful of successes, I am feeling that 2020 is beginning to take shape. Hope is the air at our house. It makes for good, deep breathing.
I’ll get down to a few bullet points to sum up the last seven days:
Tired from the Start…
I think it was originally Robert Burns who is credited with the saying, “The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” (or some variation thereof). To whomever had that insight, I applaud them. If I recall correctly, the Bible also has a stance on the matter.
I bring this up because 2020 has begun with my best laid plans being waylaid by recovery from illness and a general sense of exhaustion. Like so many humans, I had every intention of ending 2019 with my eyes set on the coming 12 months, with my goals written and my timetables in place. However, the goal-setting never materialized. The holiday plans began, followed by daily needs to address this or that, not to mention my full time gig, the eBay store, and a desire to invest in my family.
Needless to say, the last month of the year ran away from me, and the first two weeks of 2020 continued the trend. I contracted some manner of cold last week and was just staying afloat. Today, I am finally feeling a bit better, so I am also getting this promised post published.
