Losing focus

Today is officially the last day of the first half of 2016. At some point, during the night we'll step over the threshold, and start downhill toward 2017.

As I look back at my New Years resolutions, I've made a little progress, but there are more unchecked items than checked ones. I have my work cut out for me.

The thing about everyday life is that things creep in and change your priorities and the thinks you meant to do slide further down the list. It's easy to get discouraged and think, "What's the use?"

But losing focus is one thing, quitting is something altogether different. I don't plan to quit.

Both Jilda and I have a four-day weekend that starts tomorrow. We don't have a great deal planned, so we will take time, reevaluate, reprioritize, and get our ducks in a row.


  1. A row of ducks could be interesting. Have a good long weekend.

      How about a row of fishduckys?

  2. Enjoy your long weekend ! Take time to refocus.

  3. I am sure you never go far away from the line you have planned. However I do at times. But I am easily redirected by what I consider 'family needs', and I go off on a rabbit path to 'fix it'. I seldom do, but my instincts don't remember what happened the last time. LOL
    Have a great weekend.

    HINT: 'em ducks don't want to line up in formation and 'dress right'!

  4. Enjoy your long weekend. Sounds like a good plan!

  5. You & Jilda are an inspiration to others! You are probably more on course than you think!
    Happy 4th!🇺🇸❤️

  6. "Get your ducks in a row"...I love that thought and sentiment. Have a relaxing time together.

  7. It reminds me of an old saying: 'Man plans, God laughs" meaning we make plans, but God has plans of his own. That doesn't mean that we have to quit planning, certainly not. We just have to be realistic about what can or not be achieved.

  8. I'm willing to bet you find something productive to do, but I hope you ake time for some relaxation.

  9. Interesting way of looking at the year, being the last day, of the first half. Things change, but never give up! Enjoy your time off!

  10. I think it is always good to reevaluate your list of priorities, choose the most important ones as you are right, life takes over xox
