Today I told my friend Super Mom that I felt like I had so many little tasks to accomplish today that I just didn't feel like doing anything at all.  (Am I the only one that feels that way?)  Being the Super Mom that she is, she simply said ,"Write your list & prioritize." 

Sometimes it just takes someone else to kick start me into action.  What's funny is that I had an interview with a procrastination expert to listen to as well.

So far today:

  • I have delivered Diva's forgotten dance items, class Halloween party stuff, and sweet pickles to her school.
  • Seasoned a cast iron skillet
  • Written some bloggy stuff
  • Did some laundry
  • Listened to anti-procrastination interview

  • Made pear butter with the sack of pears that a friend had given me

  • Pickled and canned jalapenos from the garden (apparently our pepper plants didn't get the memo that it is fall)
  • Cleaned house
  • Folded clothes

  • Took some pictures of what else is growing in our little garden (some sort of Winter Squash - it was a mixed seed packet so I don't know exactly which kind, Green Peppers, & Eggplant)
  • Returned some phone calls
  • Started making plans for a tea I am co-hostessing in January
  • Skimmed the cream off of the milk (this is only a big deal to Engineer - he must have cream in his coffee, not whole milk, cream therefore it must be skimmed from the milk)
  • Took a shower (I am hopeful that some of you can relate to this having to be on a list in order to get done before noon and that it's not just me)
  • Attended a concert with Diva's class and 10,000 other little kids (okay, not quite that many but might as well have been)
  • Did some banking
  • Answered some e-mails
  • Visited with my Dad
  • Tried to find a suitable costume for Diva to wear to the downtown Fall Fest this evening
  • Paid some bills

See...I told you lots of little things.  I get the question all the time of "What have you been up to?" and I have no idea how to answer because of days like this one - nothing terribly exciting, just stuff that needs doing.  Surely I'm not the only one....right?....


  1. I have "list" days a lot. Especially if I have a lot of out of the house things to do. I even have to list them in route order or I will forget some things and end up using way more gas than necessary. And yes...Shower/dressed/deodorize is usually #1 on my list. LOL
