This week I was busy. VERY busy and I'm still not feeling great - which meant that I couldn't take on one of the bigger projects on my To Do List. What I did do was organize my online clutter. I started by taking care of all of those emails that can't bring myself to delete for some reason or another - responding to those that need responses and even unsubscribing to a few newsletters here and there.
In fact, I unsubscribed a lot this week. I hit my Google Reader hard and really looked at the blogs I read and the ones that I only followed because I wanted the follow back...yes, I'm guilty of that! Honestly, though, I use FeedSquares to read my blogs and I LOVE it...but seeing that number climb and climb (85 unread, 146 unread, 238 unread) makes me feel crappy and over whelmed. So...I cut down the number of blogs I subscribe to in hopes that I won't have that sinking feeling I get when the number is too big to tackle.
In doing all of that I realized something about myself...I try to do too much. I don't stick with one thing. I don't give myself time to really try something out and see if it works before abandoning it. I'm not very good at following through. I plan on really thinking about this discover and trying to come up with the one thing I want to try and ignore the rest for a while. It might be the whole grocery thing...or maybe I'll get back to Flylady - I haven't given up on that, yet!!! I'll keep you posted, though!
I did head out to Staples today and bought some awesome organizing supplies for next week's project! I can't wait to get started!!! :)
