To Do Lists

Yesterday I had only 2 items on my To Do List (TDL), and by day’s end they were still there.

Today I had 3 items on my TDL, the 2 from yesterday, plus a new one.  As of 5:30 pm central time, I am 2 for 3 on today’s TDL.

If my math is correct and I simply add the two days together, then I am 2 for 5 or at 40% success for the running two day period.  If I were a baseball player, that would be considered amazing and I would be batting 120 points higher than any current player on the Twins roster.

Now, in fairness to myself, I decided that I would not likely accomplish that much these past two days.  I was going for spontaneity.  So I spontaneously went to the fair today.  My total fair visits this year are 3.  This is more than any previous year in my life as far as I know, at least when there are people at the fair.  In full disclosure, I walk our dog around the fairgrounds during the off-season.  I also spontaneously went to a movie with my wife, spontaneously read 2 books in the last 2 days, and this is not a misprint.

You see this has been a very busy summer for a retired person and I decided to dial it down and do whatev (short for whatever) the past two days here at the tail end of summer.  Let me tell you, this is hard for me to do.  I have been wired to check things off and keep moving and my muscle memory is now a little confused.

But this is likely a normal part of being . . .
