doing more enjoyable things. I learned how to say NO, but the years of stuff
on the to do later list are still not done:(

Are you over the 'oops' time yet as I call it? As much as I wanted to stop

things I really enjoyed and am not sure I really did the right thing. (I
should have given up my job instead) The funny thing is I don't have a clue

pages, restoration work, greenhouse control, meetings, odd projects,
classes, speeches, pond tours, pond expos, and a zillion other things I gave
