what to do what to do

I am going back and forth on this idea of taking a few days off and going to Las Vegas. I am worrying about the cats and thinking that I should clean my house and worrying that I will fall off my latest eating plan. I know that every time I visit it is a mixed blessing, I love being there yet feel like my independence is somehow sucked away. I am so used to being on my own and controlling everything. At the same time, I really enjoy having my children and grandchild to do things with that I normally do alone. I don't know why I am so torn. I think it's mainly the cats.

ADD Heaven

I have been 1) writing a letter to applicants, telling them their project is incomplete; 2) researching that property through our files; 3) answering questions at the counter and on the phone; 4) doing a building plan check for two adjacent projects; 5) looking at a new submittal of plans that I might schedule for an upcoming Planning Commission meeting. As part of this enterprise I have been copying and faxing and stapling and stuffing envelopes and trying to be sure the right materials land in the right envelopes. This is a fairly typical day here, which I think is one reason the work appeals to some inner part of me.

sleepiness

I felt tired when I left work. I came home, had a piece of toast with peanut butter, read a little, then fell asleep. It was hard to get myself up. I have changed into workout clothes and will do Tracie in a few minutes. AT 6:30 I have to be at a Planning Commission meeting.

off

Done with the workout, showered, changed. I almost feel new again. But there are nagging things bothering me. Mostly my house, actually.

Planning Commission

The meeting tonight was funny. There was a lot of joking around ahead of the meeting and some of that continued into the meeting. The agenda only had consent items on it and the commission was up for approving them all without pulling any, so the main part of the meeting was over in less than ten minutes. The chatter, questions, follow-up stuff, went on for another twenty. So it was a half-hour meeting. Some applicants arrived a little late and discovered that their projects had already been approved.

It would be nice if they all were this way. But in general, these meetings do move rather quickly. And commissioners are almost always up for streamlining even more. So am I.

I've got to do something

THis house is really awful. There are piles of things everywhere, the bed is unmade (it usually is), the floors need to be cleaned, there's too much stuff. I need to get on a system. It's making me nuts.
