A couple pieces of my “fall” schedule should be revealed by next Thursday when I see the surgeon. At that point I’ll learn when I’m going to see the cornea specialist. I should also know by then if I’m heading to Jackpot, Nevada to work a tournament in August (and then probably Reno to play). By the end of this month I’ll find out if I’m working a September tournament here in Vegas.
Normally, being a big planner, I’d have a lot of anxiety not knowing my travel and work schedule. But I think my health challenges have forced me to realize it really doesn’t matter. The work is going to be there. The travel opportunities aren’t going anywhere. And the Oregon Coast will wait for me, I’m sure.
And, in a way, I still always have a game plan. I have backup plans. “Stuck” in Vegas? I’ll play poker, go to the gym, and begin outside home improvement when the weather cools. Not going to Jackpot but have some time to kill? I may hit the road right away OR play poker here while the gettin’s good and then go. The possibilities are endless.
It’s time to be more spontaneous now and truly take one day at a time. My Summer of Organization has really helped me with this. I’m actually enjoying tackling different tasks every week that improve my lifestyle and functionality. For instance, this morning I’m going to do some alterations on my roll-up curtains, some desk organization, and devise a more functional shaving kit. Next week I’m really going to work on my new gym routine.
The gym is a big step for me. If I get through this summer actually in better shape than I started, it’ll be a major accomplishment. Now that my headaches have subsided a bit (since I’ve been getting up early to get a head-start on my eyewear-progression) and I haven’t had one beer in an entire month — I think I have a fair shot at this goal!
One day at a time. Life is good.
