I made a list. A list of *gasp* CHORES. Yup, I sure did. I came home Sunday night (from a very relaxing weekend in Plainfield) a little depressed by how much work still needed to be done to get the house ready for MB this weekend. (I know, I know – I can hear you say “buy then why did you go to Plainfield last weekend” to which my only reply is: I needed REST more than HOUSEWORK.) So I made a list, broken down by day of things that I need to do. Then, by the end of Sunday night, a day on which I added NO chores, I had already crossed off two. 🙂 Lists can be very effective. Last night when I got home I actually DID the chores I had assigned myself for Monday – plus one for Tuesday, so now I feel totally ahead of the game. I might like this whole list making thing. *well, maybe*
(MB, you should know, that while I like the fact that “clutter” is okay with you, when there is no place to sit at the dining room table and eat a decent meal (like breakfast), then something is drastically wrong, and it was. Drastically.)
Rather “mature” of me, dontcha think?
Although, I just now realized that I need to gather up my knitting projects to take to Kate’s house. Hm. Will have to ponder this one for a while and then … add it to the list.
