Never enough time in a day, and often too much time to make decisions that would better be made in a few minutes. I say this having no evidence whatsoever that my agonizing and indecision, my procrastination, and hemming, have resulted in any better a decision making process than those made on a spur of the moment. Those spontaneous decisions don’t carry the weight of uncertainty, or result in costly scheduling delays. How could they. You simply make them. What a novel concept.
Well it looks like I am at that point, like it or not where I will be making many a decision which are the result of months of delays, and which I could pretend to myself were made in an organic and spontaneous fashion. If for no other reason than to make myself feel better. This late Sunday, the decisions are exhausting.
I will leave the comfort of my sister’s home, and head to my new home. I will paint the freshly painted walls with a host of new sample colors and when I awake in the wee hours of the morning, I will make a bleary eyed decision on the new living room wall color. I simply cannot live with Alpine White, which screams yellow to me. To name it white seems like false advertising. Come on Ben Moore. I thought you were on my side.

I’ll shuffle down the hallway to see if I can locate a box marked bedroom, and dress my beloved bed. We’ve only been separated a short while this time, but I miss it nonetheless. If I can’t locate it, or muster the energy to dig it out, or climb to the top of the stack and bring it down, I’ll just crawl on top of that unmade bed and close my eyes.
Tomorrow is another day.
Hope you close out January strong.
