Sometimes it's hard to believe I'm in Tucson Arizona. I sure could use me some global warming about now.
Since I have to decide where I'm going to go, if any place, and what I'm going to do, if anything, I've got to come up with something by tomorrow morning because it's getting close to "fish or cut bait time."
I'm enjoying being here at the fairgrounds but at the same time I can feel myself slowly and inexorably sinking into an ever deepening rut. I'm going to the same places, I'm seeing the same things and worst of all I'm starting to develop habits that make me WANT to do the same things every day, and for me that's a bad sign that has to be nipped in the bud before I slowly evolve into a Snowbird.
If I settle into some place for too long I start losing my desire to move, and then since I don't like to make decisions I stop even thinking about moving. Along about then my laziness kicks in and says, "moving is a lot of work, You gotta hitch up the truck, and bring in the slides all of which can be avoided by simply walking over to the office and re-upping." Then my procrastination will join the conversation and chime in with, "if you re-up that will give you plenty of time to think about what you REALLY want to do, don't go doing something on the spur of the moment that you might regret later, sit down, relax, and think about it for a week or two.
Laziness and procrastination are powerful forces in my life and can be a force for good or evil depending on how I use them, or how they use me. Laziness allows me to go through life relaxed, relatively stress-free, and with zero guilt for not accomplishing anything, I guess you could say I'm the exact opposite of a workaholic which makes me a perfect candidate to be a happy and successful retiree.
Procrastination if improperly used can lead to more stress and worry than just about anything else, but I try to use it to my benefit by taking care of the important things quickly to get them out of the way, and putting off things that don't make a difference either way until a time when I'm feeling like doing something useful then I'll get them all done at once.
So here it is about 3 o'clock in the afternoon and I still don't know what I want to do tomorrow morning, but fortunately being somewhat of an optimist I see this decision as me having lots of different opportunities all of which are pretty good so no matter which one I choose it will be great.
The frost on my truck this morning was a bad way to start the day, but things warmed up before lunch and it became a long sleeve shirt kind of day
I took this picture on the way to Walmart this morning, this sure is some weird weather. Maybe I should've stayed in southern Texas, or maybe I should've gone to Florida instead. Or maybe I'll just sit here and rub two sticks together to make a fire and pray for global warming.
