Lately I’ve been writing a lot of lists. It seems like that is the only way I can get anything done. I’ve got so much I need to accomplish that my brain feels like it is swimming in information.
Yesterday I was driving through town and a lady had stopped in the driving lane with her turn signal on instead of moving into the turning lane. She was just stopped waiting for a chance to turn. I didn’t even really get upset about it because I got it. I bet that poor lady had so much on her mind she didn’t even realize she wasn’t in the turning lane until I honked and pointed for her to move over (in a totally nice way).
Of course I have all the stuff left to do to be ready for Christmas, like wrap gifts (I started last night, yay me) and bake Christmas cookies (that’s on the agenda for today, I even bought cookie icing so I can let the kids decorate them, yay for kid activities), but there is also all of the things I would like to accomplish before the end of the year (and before I have to go back to work). It just seems like it would be a totally wasted two weeks if I don’t get some things accomplished.
1. Hang all of my clothes in the closet or put them away in the appropriate drawers… instead of on the end of my bed (or the floor).
2. Organize my “office” space and get rid of a lot of papers and stuff that needs to be shredded. I don’t really need it as an office space anymore so I would like to turn it into more of a mudroom area to catch shoes and all of the various paraphernalia that comes into the house on a daily basis.
3. Clean out at least one closet, either James’ or the hall. We have hardly any storage space in our house and I have so much stuff crammed in these two closets that you really can’t tell what is in there or find anything. I hate it and it drives me a little crazy.
What are some things you would like to accomplish before the end of the year?
