Good morning, my friends. Did you see I made up a word for my title? "Plandemonium." That's when your plan goes off the rails and you end up with pandemonium. I figure we should be frugal with our words in these hard economic times.
So here's what happened. I had a whole plan for my day...walk on the treadmill, cook meals ahead for camping, make progress on the quilting, purge the office supply cabinets in my office. After breakfast, I started in with the purging. Probably I should have done some other things first because once I got going on the purging, I didn't want to stop. Have you noticed how you can dread a task, procrastinate, and drag your feet, hating the idea of it? Then, you finally get started on said dreaded task, and then you can't help but power on through until its finished. And that's what happened to me. There was way more stuff in those cabinets than I realized, and I ended up generating another four boxes of paper for recycling. Oy.
That was okay, Mike needed to drive into town for some things, and so I rode along. We took one more box for donation and then recycled all the papers in addition to the other errands he had in mind. It didn't leave much time for anything else in the day. Nevertheless, I finished stitching the second block for "The Story of My Day."
