Wake up!

Do you ever need a wake-up call? I don't mean a hotel wake-up call...although, now that I think about it, that'd be good. If I was getting a hotel wake-up call, I'd be in a hotel, which would mean I was on vacation, which would be lovely. I do like vacations.

I mean a wake-up call that rouses you from a sleepy torpor in life. Every once in a while, don't you just emotionally give yourself a dust-off and clean out that garage, or get that proposal done, or finally match up that basket of socks? You know what I mean. Stuff that's easy to let slide. I'm a go-with-the-flow gal, and it's much too comfortable on my duff.

Soooo, this weekend I haven't exactly been a whirlwind, but I've been managing my to-do list, making some of the to-do into got-done. What a relief to cross those naggy little bits off.

I am on deadline, and tomorrow I'm putting some muscle behind the words. It's going to be hard, hard, hard--it IS Crime Time Sunday on the Hallmark Channel and I do love it. But somehow I'll manage both.

I'll just have to set my alarm.

I know what you mean about needing a wake-up call. Mine involves housework. I'm okay with the deadlines and other work related stuff, but vacuuming carpet when I know my cats are just going to shed some more is very easy to put on the back burner.

I had a beautiful wakeup call this weekend. I definitely need to simplify my life. :)

I got as much done as I could before my children remembered me. Need I say more?

Those wake-up calls are great when they're from the Lord. He always gives me better direction than I give myself. Good post.
