Pick Yourself Up, Dust Yourself Off...

...Start all over again. (Anybody else know this Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers song?)

Jenn over at Frugal Upstate has been discouraged that she's not on the shortlist for the Nobel Prize -- well, actually, she hasn't been able to get even the small deadlines met that she'd hoped for. Instead, she was just lucky to get the everyday family chores done.

I can relate. So, I'm betting, can you.

Maybe you didn't write an Academy Award-nominated screenplay this week. Maybe you didn't even get a shower by noon most days! But if you and/or your family wore clean clothes, ate hot food, and didn't have to kick a path through the clutter, that's something accomplished. Something good.

I hope to get some deferred things done this weekend -- but I'm also going back to the 15/30 Plan: take 15 or 30 minutes a day to work at a task or job that's been put off. When the timer goes off, you're done -- until the next day. It's amazing what can be accomplished in a series of short periods.

And have a good weekend.
