accountant meetings for 4.5 hours, website revamp suggestions to webmaster, spring line order to seamstress (and her 2 pugs), request to enviro tote company for new recycled cotton tote bags for TranquiliT and tranquil space, shipping online orders, meeting with darling teacher assistant, meeting with fabulous steering committee member to see her new digs, doctor’s appointment complete with three new bottles of pills (for my not-so-fabulous GERD – again, worst name EVER), two yummy yoga sessions, chatting with boutique diva on reordering needs for tranquility boutique, meeting with teacher on launching free yoga class for survivors of women’s cancers, a trip to ikea to get shelving to house my TranquilliT inventory, and hours of reorganization of files, inventory, and accessories such as post-its, note cards, paper clips, promo materials. this has been my past 48 hours.

i was to have a writing date with a dear soul today but i’m behind on my deadline (due in one hour) for the weekly column so we rescheduled it for tomorrow AND are combining it with a perusal of the edward hopper exhibit complete with reflection on 2007 and goal setting for 2008. that feels like a win-win. once i get this column piece written, i plan to slink back under the covers for a few hours of decadent napping and then hit the phillip’s collection with beau to see the impressionists by the sea exhibit after he watches a football game. i always thought that men running after a ball in brightly-colored fitting capris was a bit perplexing but apparently the rest of the country loves it.

taking the time over the past few days to do so much organizing feels GREAT. i picked up a few magazine containers and small boxes at ikea to house online order receipts, pages i’ve pulled from magazines before tossing, tags and tagging accoutrements, scarves, and headbands. it feels so good to label the boxes and know these pieces have a home. i usually use shoe boxes and cover them in wrapping paper but . . . haven’t gone shoe shopping in way too long so i don’t have any. also, i’m able to find boxes made with recycled products now so it makes it a bit easier to be green AND organized!

here’s to some “spring” cleaning during our final days of 2007 – in more ways than one, i’m talking relationships, guilt, negativity, old patterns, bad habits in addition to all the physical stuff we’ve accumulated – and some reflecting time to jump start 2008! for some tips, join us on january 7 for a “new year, new you” le chic teleclass chat or on january 12 for an all-day gala. until then, happy planning and maybe even a nap . . . or two!
