CED = Monkey-Mind Friday

I'm having one of those days. One of those days when you have a plan that you mean to follow, but it breaks into fragments, and you have to decide, on the fly, what to salvage and what to let go.

I had phone calls to make and bills to pay today. I'm half-way through cleaning my house, when I realize that I only meant to surface-clean it today. I've paid the bills, but I need to get to a real P.O. box to mail them. I still have to exercise, and need to run errands on the Island, but I need to go & pick up David in the opposite direction, except I'm not sure what time he'll be ready. I should have let him take my car, but he can't run the errands for me. What to do first? Eat lunch, of course.

Now that I'm done with lunch, I should stop writing and go exercise. Then I can finish cleaning the house, take a shower, and run the errands...if David doesn't call first. And I have an art project in my mind that I really want to sketch out, before I forget what it is and how I was planning to do it...

I think Creative Every Day today = creatively managing monkey-mind. Or is it hamster-wheel mind?

Ha! I love the hamster photo!

You know, ever since my business hit the skids and I have an ABUNDANCE of free time, I find I get very little done. It seems my free time is inversely proportional to how productive I am. Which is bizarre. Still trying to figure that one out.

I guess the old cliche about needing something done - give it to a busy person - is true. Because if you gave it to ME - it wouldn't get done.... Truly odd.

Very funny...exactly how my mind works (or doesn't) on most A.D.D.
Like running in circles...or pehaps the hamster wheel. ;0
