The Gift of Time

Somebody's been reading my thoughts. This came in my mail today, My Daily Indulgence from iVillage:

The Gift of Time

Your days are packed with activity, from the banal (emptying the dishwasher) to the ridiculous (making a Thomas the Tank Engine train out of an old refrigerator box). Yet, if you're anything like us, before bed you make long lists of all the other things you must do by the end of the week. And somehow they never get done. Sure, the kids are fed, the bedsheets are reasonably clean and the dog has been walked (hasn't she?), but some things just seem to stay on the list forever.

Get ready to knock one thing off. Our Daily Indulgence today is not of the pampering, spa type, but more practical instead: Pick one thing you've wanted to complete in your house and do it. Whether it's getting a photo album filled (yes, those really are the Thanksgiving photos from 2003), organizing your sock drawer by color and design, or calling all those people you've been meaning to, give yourself the gift of time to do it.

The reward will be a sense of accomplishment that -- if you're anything like us -- you probably haven't felt in a while. Congratulations! You finally did it.

Why AnneThology?

Anthology means a collection of poems, short stories, plays, songs, or excerpts. My name is Anne, and this blog contains a collection of my thoughts, musings and writings (poems, short stories), some songs I like, plus a sprinkling of excerpts I find worth sharing --hence, AnneThology.

Did you know?

Anthology derives from the Greek word ἀνθολογία (anthologia; literally “flower-gathering”) for garland — or bouquet of flowers — which was the title of the earliest surviving anthology, assembled by Meleager of Gadara.

Look, what I have -- these are all for you.
