As I might have mentioned, I kind of like status reports at work. Maybe I don’t always like reading everyone else’s status reports, but I definitely like writing my own because they convince me that I’ve actually accomplished some stuff. And even though I don’t always like doing stuff, I definitely like accomplishing stuff.
I think it logically follows, then, that I might also enjoy writing status reports for my non-work life to balance the nagging feeling that I devote too many evenings to reading internet comments about the latest American Idol drama. I rather ingeniously have chosen to begin this effort several months before the next American Idol season so that I can avoid facing the truth for a while longer.
So, status: over the past week, I…
- Spent ~5 nights writing ~40 wedding thank-you notes
- Petted some chickens
- Attended a housewarming party
- Made those pictures appear at the top of this blog
Wow. That was surprisingly not as fun as it looks. I think some people could do all four of those things in one Saturday afternoon…but that’ll be a good incentive to do more next week. Or to figure out a different Secret to Happiness.
