GOOD MORNING WORLD
The first word that came to my head this morning was HARRIED. My TO DO list is nine miles long. Here I am with almost three hours behind me and not much to check off the list. The list is not even written. I was going many different directions at once. I need focus.
The best way I discovered last year for me to focus was to write so here I sit spending precious time trying to get jobs done and doping absolutely nothing about the looming list.
I looked up harried. The definition is:
verb (used with object)
1. to harass, annoy, or prove a nuisance to by or as if by repeated attacks; worry: He was harried by constant doubts.
2. to ravage, as in war; devastate: The troops harried the countryside.
verb (used without object)
3. to make harassing incursions.
before 900; Middle English herien, Old English her ( g ) ian (derivative of here army); cognate with German verheeren, Old Norse herja to harry, lay waste
1. molest, plague, trouble. 2. plunder, strip, rob, pillage.

As I read this my harried thoughts and feelings seem to pale in comparison to mentions of war, plague, plunder and pillage. I am simply a little concerned that I will get all the things done that I need to complete this next few hours!
So in perspective my day is not too bad. Think I will kick it up a notch and actually get to the list by writing one out. Might just be able to check all the items off. Of course I will be able to start with a check off as I will put ‘Write my blog” as #1. We know that is all done now – write and check off at the same time! I am now beginning my kind of day!!!
…..ONWARD TO MORE MISADVENTURE…
