Poke the Box Workbook


This is a good PDF.  And it’s free.   If you are one who gets stuck when you have an idea of something you’d like to do or try, then take a few minutes to read this workbook.    Me, I get paralyzed by fear.  Yes, getting laughed at… Failing….   It will be too hard…  (compared to calculus, probably not)

I have projects to do around the house and a new one this week that I wasn’t expecting.  I guess I should have, but I hadn’t thought that far yet.   My daughter came home from 8 weeks at summer camp in Washington State.  It’s so good to have her home again.  But wait…  She has a 5 pm training meeting.  She wants to get moved into her new place before then…  Home, unload car, empty suitcases, do laudry, reload car, take her to school (except she’s living in a rental house off campus with some friends.)  And they need furniture.  She needs a bed.  Of course, take your bed from your bedroom……

Are you seeing yet my new project?   She has emptied her bedroom.  She will probably never live at home again.  She’s a senior in college.  So she said I can make her room into my real office, and let the guest bedroom be a real guest bedroom.   So that’s 2 rooms to rearrange.  Those who know me, know how I like to save every book, magazine, letter, etc.   There is so much clutter to be sorted and deleted.  And books and bookcases to move to the other room.  It’s fun to rearrange things, but I’m so overwhelmed by how much I have.  Pack rat, I am.  — I’m not a hoarder- we can still walk in all the rooms in the house.– Anyway, like the workbook says, just start.

It’s time to go move a bookcase or two…
