For me, my One Little Word was easy to come up with this year. I thought about 2016 and what I accomplished as far as things around the house.I wanted to clean out the garage. Right now there is “stuff” in it from cleaning out my aunt’s house and my mother-in-laws house. There is no room for the car. Did I do it? No.
I wanted to get rid of things in our attic. There are boxes we put up there when we moved here 28 years ago and they are still untouched. Did I do it? No.
I wanted to spend more time outside working on curb appeal for our house. There was some planting and pulling of weeds that needed to be done. Did I do it? No.
Why didn’t I accomplish these things? Well, it seems I had some small health issues that got in the way of me doing any kind of heavy lifting or pulling. Now, though, the doctors say I have no restrictions so I can do the things I planned for last year.
Therefore, my OLW for 2017 is FINISH.
