Do 1 Thing! Because Things Are Good

Thursday is a great day to do that 1 thing you don’t want to do but also don’t want to continue thinking about doing. 

A long time ago, or so it seems, because we’re talking about almost two years ago, I worked in Development for a non-profit that had a gala, and, because this is what you do, I invited lots of people I knew who might even tangentially be interested in said non-profit and its gala. One of those people, a family friend, came up from DC to attend the gala, which I very much appreciated — and, at the auction that accompanied the main event, he bid on and won something! A guided tour of the Met, given by one of our very knowledgeable board members.

Fast forward to now and the non-profit no longer exists. Former co-workers and board members alike have scattered to the four winds. My family friend, though, finally has a chance to come to New York, he tells me, and he is excited to take that tour of the Met! Oh lord.

My 1 thing, then, is to email the former board member, remind him of his commitment, and hope that he will indeed still be willing and able to give my family friend what he paid for. Wish me luck!

(Mike and Logan finally convinced me to listen to the Taylor Swift album.)

My 1 Thing today is to finally get it together and pull together a baby Halloween costume, which will basically just be a beard and a cone hat because Halloween is tomorrow and he’s going to be a garden gnome.

What are your Things??

Our 1 Thing: Remembering to Do 1 Thing, Oops

Thursdays are a great day to do that 1 thing you need to do but don’t want to do but need to do. 

We forgot about 1 thing! So now my 1 thing is to post “Do 1 Thing” before day’s end. Oops. No, okay, that doesn’t count. My 1 thing is child-related: Babygirl turned two and we’re throwing her a hopefully casual, low-key party this weekend in the park. Can any party really be casual and low-key when people travel to get to it, though? Probably not. My mom is coming, and various in-laws, and other family members, and they will want food to chomp on even though the party was planned strategically for a non-meal time. I said no gifts on the evite but people will bring gifts (we’ve received some in the mail already) so there will be thank you notes and clean up afterwards, as well as stress and prep work in advance, some of which is to be done today. So yeah! There it is.

What’s your 1 thing?
