Allow yourself to be distracted

It’s amazing how hard it is for me to get distracted from some things, and so easy from others. I’m a man of lists and schedules (thanks Mom!), and when travelling around I find it impossible to stray down an unnamed road or to stop too long in any one place. Hopefully I can work on changing that somewhat once I’m finished with this work. I’m missing too many things along the way. Right now though, it’s so #$%! cold that all I want to do is finish my work as quickly as possible, and head south. I hope it is warm in Alaska by May 1st!

BTW, today I’m working in Stockton, IL. I’ll be heading up to Perkinstown, WI tomorrow if all goes well. New tires are on their way from The Tirerack, which I would recommed to anyone needing specialty tires. Their shipping is quick and cheap, and their prices seem lower than most.

    Oh, a mother’s eyes! Ha ha, I wouldn’t worry about the curtains 🙂 The lists and the drive to always be working at something have been handed down for generations 🙂 It’s a running joke to have to plan to relax, but it really is important to do it… And I think if you plan it enough, it sort of becomes an easy habit… It’s not really a bad thing to have focus and a plan, as long as you love the journey you choose!

    O my! I hope you had the curtains closed!

    I’ll try my darndest. Last night I found a really cool camping spot in the Chippewa Nat’l Forest. It is closed for the season, so it’s a nice quite place to boondock. Paste that link into the address bar and you can see the map. The pups and I did some hiking around the campground area. Last night was very tolerable temperature wise. I actually popped the camper top for the first time in many days, and it was great to be able to stand fully erect inside. I had wine, cheese, pepperoni, and crackers. Yum Yum!

    Gee, no mention of how very easily distracted you are from finishing things. . . Dunno about Jen, but Bryan is MUCH better at making lists and schedules than he is at actually doing the things on the lists. Sometimes the schedules sound like fun but would require at least a 72-hour day to complete! 😉 Oh, the irony of you being unable to be distracted.

    I hope it’s the cold that’s holding you back. I am going to be relying on you to see things and take pictures so that I can travel vicariously. How am I supposed to do that if you make a beeline for AK and don’t take pictures of the roses on the way? Sheesh.
