You know what I am really good at? Making to-do lists.
You know what I am really bad at? Getting things done on the to-do lists.
I have been really wanting this summer to be productive. It seems as though by the time school rolls around in August, I look back over my summer and realize that I got next to nothing accomplished. I wanted to make this year different. It started off well. I had gotten quite a few things done, but I have plateaued. My motivation is lacking, and I haven’t been able to get back with it. I know that realistically I will not get everything done that I want, but I also know that I will be hard on myself if I don’t get much done. (It is just how I am. I don’t know how to let it go.)
Here are my to-do lists for today and tomorrow:
As you can see nothing has been checked off. That is partly because I haven’t taken the time to check anything off. The only things I can check off are “Dogs to the vet: 9:00 am” and “Lunch: Out w/ladies.” That is it.
I had the check in my wallet to pay our utility bill, but I forgot to stop by today. It isn’t due until the 10th, so it won’t be late or anything, but I had planned to get it done today. I also had my check to deposit and post-it note with what I needed to get out in cash. I did not make it to the bank.
Everything else was my laziness. I procrastinate and procrastinate, and then at the end of the day I feel super lazy. I don’t have a lot of time to get things done during the day, usually just during nap time, and by then I am exhausted so I just want to rest.
I will probably adjust my lists so that I do in fact get things done tomorrow. Miss C and I will head to story time at 9:30, and then hopefully actually go to the bank. I also plan to pay our bill tomorrow as well. And I have to make my client disc, as I plan on seeing my client tomorrow and giving it to her. The weather is a little uncertain, so I don’t know if I will do laundry, as I hang everything out to dry. If the forecast looks ok, then I should get at least 1 load done. I probably need to focus on getting all the current clean clothes folded and put away before I start washing more.
Who knows when everything else will get done. Isn’t summer supposed to be a time to relax? I am not feeling that way at all! I suppose I do it to myself. 🙂
