I’m having a battle with motivation at the moment, and it’s not a battle that I’m (currently) winning.
“Is there anything you want me to do?” I asked my wife this morning, as she was getting ready to leave for work. “You could order the side panel for the bath” she replied. A simple enough task, you would think, but I’ve been trying to achieve it all day, and its now almost 5pm and all I have done is measure the bath so that I know the size of panel to order…
On the plus side, I have booked my car into Autowerke for a service and brake pads this Thursday – I’ve been trying to achieve this since the beginning of last week. I have also selected a new contract for our electricity supply at the cottage – our current contract expires in just under 3 weeks – now all I need to do is actually call the energy company and set the wheels in motion. Tomorrow, perhaps.
I searched around for a late availability holiday for my wife and I – it’s our wedding anniversary next month, and we decided that it would be nice to celebrate that somewhere warm. I haven’t selected a holiday yet, but I do have better idea of where we should go. I’d better check that my passport hasn’t expired!
I took the dog for her two walks today, and that’s about the extent of my achievements for the day.
Don’t ask me why I’m struggling to perform some pretty basic tasks, because I don’t understand it either. I just know that I’m struggling. I have a whole list of basic tasks that I need to do, and no idea when I’m going to be able to get them all done. I just hope that I can make some sort of progress before my wife loses patience with me.
