Can I use Frack? Is BSG too far in the past for that to be used? Do people get it? Do people even associate it with BSG anymore? Am I spending too much time analyzing the use of a curse-word-fill-in in the title?
Frack you, January.
I mentioned previously that we had a slew of unfortunate events around the holidays. I’m still driving a van in which I can not turn off the air-conditioning. This, my friends, SUCKS when you’re having record-low temps. I’ve had some sleep issues due to stress and ailing children. I’ve been eating horribly and running less. Basically, I’ve just bombed ALL of my attempts at making this an awesome new year. Making the first 27 days of this month suck ALL sorts of royal donkey butts. I had all three of my inboxes to ZERO the first week of the year and BAM! 150 emails total yesterday. My eating has been at MAXIMUM STRESS BINGING levels and I’m still not getting to any of my strength training workouts that I swore I’d do to get ready for my 12-hour run in 5+ weeks.
About the only thing I’m keeping organized is work but that’s what PAYS THE BILLS. It’s always easy to keep my work life in focus, no one pays me for anything else.
SO! This is the last week of January and I’m going to kick it in the balls on a Tuesday. I mean, I know Mondays, and the first day of the month, and New Year’s Day – those are always great days to get your shit together. But I heard the last Tuesday in January can be a pretty good day for a do-over too.
And maybe if I spend the last four days in January trying to get my life organize, then I can start February on better footing.
Y’all? I do this calendar for my Dad’s family every year and I’ve NOT EVEN DONE IT YET. How awful is that? I worked on it in November, but I got a slew of last-minute photos before Christmas, and I’ve just been putting off working on it until I had a large chunk of time to dedicate to it and HERE IT IS, almost February and my family has NO CALENDAR.
My Dad would be so proud.
So! Today! Getting the shit together! The last Tuesday in January! I’m going to work on my inboxes, my bullet journal, my family calendar, and my strength training. I’m going to quit looking at 2014 as an already catastrophic failure and I’m going to – instead – be grateful that I have 48 weeks left to make it AWESOMETASTIC.
I’m going to smile more. I’m going to yell less. I’m going to MAKE GOOD FOOD CHOICES and I’m going to prioritize other things besides the job that pays me. Just because the other shit doesn’t put heat in my van, doesn’t mean I shouldn’t give it attention. Baby steps. Maybe not all three inboxes to zero today, but maybe under 50! I may not squeeze in a run AND a strength workout but maybe at least one of the two? And maybe at least work on the calendar a bit? Not finish it – but log in an hour or so? BABY STEPS.
So…Frack You 27 days of January! But Thank God for the 28th day! I hear it’s the best day to re-do your resolutions anyway. Screw the 1st, it’s so cliché.
