SOLC 25 of 31: Plannin’, Shoppin’, Writin’ Everyday

Luke Bryan has a hit song on the radio called, “Huntin’, Fishin’, Lovin’ Everyday.” My days are more like “Plannin’, Shoppin’ and Writin’ Everyday.”

On this Monday morning as I think about the week the rolls out in front of me, I already anticipate a few “shoppin'” trips. Tonight I already made a late trip to the grocery store (after puppy class) to get the items I need for a breakfast that I’m hosting for colleagues tomorrow morning. This follows the late night trip to the grocery store last night (after tennis) to get ingredients for last night’s dinner.

Which brings me to “plannin'”. See, if I were more planned, I might not be making so many shoppin’ trips, but who has time to plan? Planning takes time, which I’m short on right now. But I think today sometime I’ll need to make a shoppin’ list to plan what to buy for tomorrow. I also need to start planning for the dinner I’m hosting on Saturday evening (after a morning conference) – another list, another shoppin’ trip.

And then there’s the “writin'” everyday. It’s all consuming. Whether for this blog (for enjoyment), for work (for mandate) or for graduate school (for the learning? degree? connections?) or for my leadership blog (for passion) – I am truly engaging in all kinds of formal and informal writing EVERY DAY. For better or worse, I am dipping my toe into multiple genres at one time: research, analysis, reflection, evaluation, interviews, surveys, life stories and life lessons.

And so, this week will bring Shoppin’, Plannin’ and Writing’ everyday. Here we go!

    I think many of us find ourselves plannin’, shoppin’ and writin’. I hope you have a great week.

    Sounds busy. I’m glad you’re able to make time for it all.

    Love the song, love the slice. I have a pantry and fridge full of ingredients but never the right stuff to make a meal.

    Wow, your writing schedule is very varied and busy. I don’t know how you do it, along with the other stuff!

    The manager of the grocery store asked me one day, “Do you live in our parking lot?” I’m retired, and so I should have lots of time to plan. I still find I’m shoppin’ every day; sometimes twice a day!
    You certainly are busy (in a good way)
