How to stay focused and on track is a daily challenge for me. This was written in 2005 but it’s still true today.
I had about an hour before I had to start dinner, so I thought I would spend that time sewing.
As I sat down to the sewing machine, I realized that I needed to clean the lint from the bobbin area, so I took the throat plate off and cleaned out the lint. Then, I realized the sewing machine and my computer were really dusty, so I got my feather duster out and dusted them.
Then, I thought I would dust the ceiling fan while I had the feather duster out. When I did that, a bunch of dust clumps fell on the carpet, so I had to get out the sweeper. Since I had the sweeper out, I used the wand attachment to sweep out the corners where the stray threads and small pieces of material seem to collect.
Then I thought I would sweep the corners of the front porch because I had noticed some cobwebs and dead bugs out there. I realized the front door needed some attention, so I cleaned it and the window.
I thought that since I had the sweeper out with the wand attachment on it, I would clean the track of the sliding glass door too. I did that and then also swept the floor and the corners of the back patio.
I realized that the patio table and chairs needed to be cleaned too, so I did that. Since I was out there, I watered the flowers.
By the time I put the sweeper away, it was time to start dinner.
That’s how easily I get distracted.
