Chores in a Box

Since I am still fighting off the tail end of my head cold, I am struggling to motivate myself to clean and prep the house for next week’s Christmagiving visit from the kids. I am feeling better, but I’m certainly not 100%. I don’t want to move from inside to outside, where it is quite cold, until I am fully healthy.

Abby’s back at work today, though she is certainly not over her cold either. I’m vowing to myself right now to compartmentalize and get at least one corner of it down today. Every journey, I am fond of saying, starts with the first step.

Taking trash to the curb last night, down our 100-yard-long driveway, in blowing snow, chilled me to the bone. Although the sun is out today, it's still pretty cold.

  1. “Every journey, I am fond of saying, starts with the first step.”

    I know it’s a cliche, but it gave me pause.

    How many of my journeys did I initiate with a full head of steam, only to change course halfway through after realizing I’d poorly chosen the original destination?
