It’s been pretty slow at the shop, just as it always is this time of year. I swear I’m going to catch up on bookwork, cleaning, projects & all sorts of things I stall out on during the year when we’re busier. Of course I can always find reasons for not doing all that stuff. My best one is “ I’ll be here again tomorrow, I can do it then”. And yet, there it sits.
Why is it that when it comes to the parts of our jobs we’re not so fond of, we need a little push to get moving? For instance, since taxes are going to be due soon, it might be a good idea for me to get my bookwork done (Al hasn’t tackled the taxes in 40 plus years, pretty sure he’s not going to start now) & even though I’m pretty neat, I needed a reason to organize our storage area at the store. Since we have sublet some of the space upstairs, I want it to look a little better when other folks are in there so I need to get it done.
I even have a plan to get caught up on all those projects that have been sitting around in the garage. Needs to be varnished? Al can do it. Needs to be painted? Al can do it. Needs that old fabric taken off? Al can do it. Yes, that’s my next goal, get out there & line up those projects for Al to do. I think that will be a huge accomplishment…k
