I confess to being a list maker. I will make myself a list of things I want or need to get done in a weekend. I’m always over ambitious on the projects and under estimate the time it will all take.
On my list – don’t worry I won’t bore you with the entire thing – I had three writing projects to work on, some household stuff, and some crocheting stuff. Just writing that down, my inner voice is saying – are you nuts? That’s too much to do in one weekend. Maybe…
It was a good day today. I got edits for 17 more chapters on the computer. At the same time I’m working on a chapter summary to see where I can consolidate and edit out some of the details in my too long manuscript. I edited an essay and submitted it for consideration. I’ve not gotten to the third writing project but I’ve been a bit busy so far.
In addition to the writing stuff, I got the crocheting stuff done that I needed to. I made some small gifts for my student workers. They are all organized and ready to go. Hopefully Ken will wrap them for me tomorrow. I need to make labels for each one… that was not on my list.
It is silly, I know but I LOVE being able to cross things off my list. It makes me feel good. The list is a tool to keep me on track. Now I am not so far gone that if I deviate from my list I get upset or annoyed (well mostly I don’t).
Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. There isn’t a lot planned for the day. I’m hoping I’ll be able to get a lot done tomorrow too. Maybe I’ll be able to cross off everything on my list… okay that won’t happen but maybe I’ll come really close.
