Another beautiful day in Yuma although it was a tad breezy. I ended up not going into town like I'd thought and spent the day just messing around and thinking about doing a few odds and ends in the Arctic Fox.
I had gotten behind with my odds and ends and they were starting to pile up, and I'm here to tell you that looking at a pile of odds and ends every morning that needed taking care of is a bad way to start your day.
So I spent some time prioritizing the odds and ends situation and determined that my odds needed more help than my ends did and that by concentrating on my odds I could get them straightened out a lot quicker. But on the other hand since my ends didn't need as much help maybe I should tackle those first and get them out of the way so I could claim some success.
Determining that led me to a reorganizing of my priorities and a reshuffling of the entire odds and ends picture which exposed the depth of this problem to such a degree that after lunch it was becoming clear to me the gravity of the whole odds and ends situation required some immediate decisions on my part before the entire odds and ends thing reached critical mass where I would never be able to get a handle on it.
By late afternoon I was so engrossed in how to get this odds and ends question under control I completely forgot about dinner and remained mentally locked in a bitter battle over what to do about the possibility of an impending disaster if I didn't quickly take control of the rapidly deteriorating odds and ends dilemma.
It appears I'm not the problem solver I used to be. But mentally and physically drained I gave it my best shot until bedtime where it became apparent that the odds and ends issue was insurmountable and I had no choice other than to admit defeat.
But I plan on waking up early tomorrow so I can have the entire day to sit and think about what I can do about all these odds and ends I need to do around Arctic Fox, and why they don't seem to be getting done even though I've spent days thinking about them.
