Simplify, part One

One of the good things about 2008 is that my work has decided to limit the number of vacation days that people can carry over each year, to fifteen. Since I have 50 vacation days built up, that means that I have to use about seven weeks of vacation time between now and the end of the year.

Since our major trip for the year was Disney, that means that I've got a lot of time on my hands, and I'm not planning to do anything terribly dramatic with it.

There is one thing that I do plan on doing: simplify my life. For many years, I've enjoyed living a three ring circus, but these past six months have shown me that what I really want at this point in my life is to focus more on fewer things.

Those would be: my kids, Corb, my work, and my art. Will that be theatrical or creative writing? That I need to really sort out, still.

In any event, I'll be taking three week-long vacations, and also, taking Fridays off all summer. At least. Today, even though it's a Monday, was my first day off.

So, I woke up this morning, and drove to the Registry of Motor Vehicles, to turn in the plates for the car that Corb totaled in May. It was much easier than I thought...pretty much, just five seconds, no waiting, and I was done.

Then I called my insurance company and took the car off the policy. And, because Josie was listed as co-owner of only that vehicle, I took her name off the policy entirely, including as a listed driver. That should save me money, which I'll need, since Corb was at fault for his accident.

Now, I work on the last piece of financial information I need to submit to proceed forward with the divorce.

Then I pick up the kids and enjoy the day!
