A formal complaint was filed today about the lack of cooked food in this house. Zak asked if I would do some more cooking again “like I use to”. Oops. OK, ok. Noted. But this request gave me pause to reflect.

Do you know what my New Years Resolution was? Stop over committing myself. I have not done that all. Completely the opposite actually.

I recently heard someone say “If you have 40 priorities, then you have none.” That’s me. I have too many priorities. I take on too much and before I know it the things that are supposed to be at the top of the list get lost in the shuffle and I can’t give ANYTHING my best effort because I’m spreading myself too thin.

I wanted to make Green Lemonade yesterday after my long run but I couldn’t find a small piece to the juicer. It’s small but it’s also a very crucial part: the nut that holds the blade in place.
