My to-do list for this week is so long I had to add another column and condense some of the tasks. Instead of separate items for cleaning each room of the house, I have just one general ďclean desk-kitchen-bathroom-bedroom-loft-and while youíre at it vacuumĒ item.
Thatís a big joke, of course, because Iím not even close to getting to any of those things. Iím lucky if I remember to do laundry often enough to keep clean underwear in the drawer these days. Simple maintenance, especially of the house, is just too low a priority. The only reason I keep it on the list is so that I can carry it over from week to week. That way, when the list gets shorter and I have more time, I wonít have completely forgotten about it.
Last night I went to bed at 10 pm. Tonight I worked until 8 pm and then realized I hadnít eaten anything all day, so thereís no way Iím going to get that much sleep again. It never works two nights in a row anyway. If Iím asleep early one night, you can bet that Iíll be up late the next.
I could tell you exactly what I did all day, but then Iíd have to revive you. Letís just say that working as late as I did was the only way to feel as if Iíd accomplished anything at all, despite the fact that I was busy all day without stopping. I had so many things thrown at me from afar that I couldnít cross anything off my list until way past the usual hour. And as we all know, the only reason to make a to-do list is so we can cross things off it.
