    Feeling Overwhelmed...

    I need to write a public to-do list for the day, possibly the week. Anyone else want to do this too? I really need to be held accountable so I don't go absolutely insane (I'm already almost there)...

    So here's my list for today.
    (purple means it's done)

    run dishwasher
    finish Christmas cards; put in mail
    clean up floor
    make grocery list
    finish editing pictures from Saturday; put on blog and FB

    I do it on my blog every day since a couple weeks, and it works great... even if no one reads my blog and hold me accountable! LOL The key to me is to keep it simple and humble, on weekdays (when I work) I try to not have more than 3 to do's.

    I'm feeling seriously overwhelmed and behind too! Ugh!
    I've had the cards done for weeks now, but no letter done to put in with it. Tomorrow night hopefully - to print, stuff, address.
    Finally got the last gift tonight to mail off to VT tomorrow. Bought 90% of what needed to be sent Black Friday, but haven't finished it til now. Mail it tomorrow.
    Still need to make goodies to go into teachers presents. Probally will do Wed. or Thurs.

    Oh yeah - tomorrow Ryan turns 12. So party for him on Saturday and need to shop for it.

    Have I mentioned my hubby's been out of town for over a week now? He won't be home until Friday night!

    Reading all your lists is making me nervous. I'm not much of a list maker so now I'm wondering what I've forgotten to do.

    I've got several lists going on paper, so I'll join you girls in spirit, okay?
    Can I just tell you how little I feel like I'm getting done though? ugh! Lily's days are in two hour blocks - up for 2, sleep for 2, up for 2, you get the picture..... That two hours goes FAST! Today, I marked a few things off my list, but when I went to Walmart, they were out of several things that I needed to purchase, making that trip a little non-productive. sigh.

    I wish I could just make everyone's lists magically disappear, but even Santa has to follow through by visiting everyone on his list! So instead, I'll join you, if you don't mind!

    feed's Wednesday so it's my turn!
    shine sleigh
    check Santa's email for last minute changes to "naughty/nice" list
    buy groceries for Mrs. Claus' Christmas cookies

    Thanks, Old St Chick! I wish you could make my list disappear, too! We'll all get there, though!

    I didn't want to be left out, so here I am. Thanks, Pamie!

    Oh, and I like how Denise has added NAP in to her list! That's my kind of action item! Maybe I should add it to my own!

    I know what you mean, Mari. Hudson is constantly finding things on the floor that he really shouldn't be eating. How fun that you'll get to see your mom again
