Random Part 2

So today my throat is a tad better, Benji is still coughing but it is loose now, Alec now has a sore throat, Marvin is some better, but we both drank a shot of vodka last night to burn our throats and help us sleep (works great!!), and Ava was up for about two hours in the middle of the night coughing and still has a runny nose.

I finally made my lists yesterday. My "To Take" lists took up two entire sheets of notebook paper and I was using abbreviations such as "8 shorts", "3 sheet sets", etc. I also have a "To Do" list broken down into three days (today, tomorrow and Saturday morning), which of course includes things like clean the bathrooms, vacuum and dust.

Today was my day to make a couple of meals to freeze, clean the bathrooms, finish the laundry, and several more things. So what have I gotten finished so far? Well, I went up and re-arranged Ava's room and got out all of her fall clothes so I could see what I still needed to buy for her. And no, that wasn't on the list!!!!

WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME????!!! Maybe I'm a closet procrastinator. . .

You're not alone. I too make a million lists and then add to them in my head and end up doing other things. I always have this dream that things will go smoother once I write them down.
Nothing is wrong, you're just a good mom who wants things to go well. Make sure to take some time for you too though.

It must be a mom thing. I make all kinds of list when get ready to go on vacation. I too hate coming home to a dirty house!

I can't tell you how many times I have been distracted with other projects NOT on my list. I don't think it's non-productive. It's just being productive in ways not listed. I was going to clean my bathroom, on my list for this weekend. But I got distracted with my new sponge mop that I mopped all the hardwood floors.

I too am a closet procrastinator. Love the lists and then find something else way more important to put off the list. I'm so organized too so it's weird that I am like that. Oh well. We can't all be perfect. :)
