Jia, of Untypically Jia over at Untypically Jia and her "been there done that list"
Just today alone, not counting yesterday, last week or this whole month - I've been so overwhelmed by my to-do list. It simply is endless. I just keep adding to it each day, I try to prioritize I really do. Just the urgent ones are enough to fill a page. Then the just vitally important ones seem to spill right on over to the second page.
I know I'm busy everyday - and the days just seem to fly by with me trying to get SOMETHING done everyday.
But after being inspired by Jia, I'm starting a whole new list system.
The UN to-do list.
As I go along I keep a tally of all the things I've done but not been able to check off of any list. So for today the list would look something like this:
Got out of bed
(it sounds mundane I know but is not a small task with the arthritis I'm experiencing in my back lately:)
Read 20 pages in my book "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society"
(I'll have to blog about this one soon as I AM in love!)
Spent two hours searching for a stubborn virus, removing said virus and restoring my husbands computer to it's previous "unviral" state (I think it had H1N1) so he could get out the door and go to work!
Walked / hiked four miles through the wooded hills above Alpine with friends and dogs.
(Killed two birds with that one)
Left messages with like 8 different parties
(Why oh why doesn't anyone call me back?)
Searched for cheap airfares to get my son here in January for the other sons wedding.
Made the bed
Did the dishes
Read my scriptures
Said my prayers
(Pretty much in that order unfortunately)
Let me see, what else can I add:
Ate 6 chocolate chip cookies
Drank two cans of diet coke
(I thought about making something healthy for lunch, but I don't think it counts as an official list item as I didn't spend enough time thinking about it to actually create anything)
Assisted daughter number two in creating an updated resume and cover letter so she can find a medical assistant job in Rexburg for next semester.
Made a decision about where to host sons wedding luncheon.
Fed the cats once, the dogs twice
And now finally; created this blog post!
Whew! I am exhausted, no one has still called me back, and now I'm heading on over to the URGENT to-do list and see if I can get anything DONE today:)
