Andrew says that one of the down sides of a big move and a new situation is that you have to take yourself. Flaws and all.
I say No.
With this new move I am going to reinvent myself.
I will be different person.
I will be outrageously organised.
Paperwork? I'll be the queen of paperwork! I will not procrastinate with permission forms. I will open envelopes with typed addresses. Heck, I'll even fill in the 7 year old CCLI form that they've sent and resent about 40 times now.
I will be a Getting Things Done devotee. Or maybe I'll even write my own book so others can learn from my mad organisational skillz.
I will no longer lose things. Everything will have it's own special spot and I'll put things back in the right place not just into some random cupboard to get them out of sight.
I will be brave enough to draw up and send out a roster. I will ask people to do things well in advance. I will not say yes to what I can't do.
I will do grocery shopping for more than one day at a time. (If Jesus returns, the poor folks who are left behind can eat it.) Maybe I'll write a shopping list.
Just wait, friends. Next year you'll need to be introduced to the new me.
