My “to do list” is HUGE – and I’m either being lazy, or just un-motivated, or overwhelmed, or WTF? I don’t know. But here’s my list:
-finish all of my fun, fantastic sewing projects (see earlier posts for the WIP)
-clean my house
-fold Malka’s laundry
-stick to my WW plan
-paint and mount the “Torah shelf” I made for Narda for her birthday
-clean out Malka’s closet, move all of my crap out of it
-general de-cluttering, find something for the U.T.E.R.U.S. “garage sale”
-make the photo albums for the adoption of child #2
-copy Narda’s and my birth certificates, send to adoption agency
-take Malka’s artwork, cut up to mount onto nicely folded pieces of paper, turning them into GORGEOUS thank you cards
-finish a bazillion craft/knitting/sewing projects
-finish Malka’s scrap book (um, I did 3 pages about a year ago)
-get hair cut
And this doesn’t even begin the “at work” to do list, of things that are “OK to wait a while, but SO need to get done” – like all of my check lists for the Major Chagim (holidays), but my window of time to get them done is narrowing.
My WW leader once said, when I asked her what the deal was – she (bless her heart) said – follow the Nike Ad – Just do it. It’s SUCH a simple concept. To just STOP being in my own way. If only I could just put my fears/baggage/laziness/whatever on a shelf, and just get shit done, I’d be much happier.
Like this am, I loaded the dishwasher while Malka ate her yogurt, and then she helped me scoop the litter boxes and take out the trash. It’s such a small thing, but I feel like superwoman for accomplishing it. I shouldn’t, though, you know?
