I have a love of lists. One particular list is titled “Big To-Do List”. It lives on my desktop, not getting done with any amount of speed. I did just manage to chop off a few things, but not because I did them. I just decided that “Scraping all the ceilings in my house” could not be on the list. That task will still be there, but I want this list to be about FINISHING projects, not just starting them. Granted, there are a few projects to start in there, but wait! I think I’ll move them to the list I have called “Ideas for Gifts”. Its a great list of things I want to give people for their birthday or xmas. Its really saved me so I don’t have to think of things for people all at the same time.
Back to this list. This isn’t a New Year’s Resolution. I am working on a new habit that I hope to have established by the end of the month to eat more slowly and really enjoy my food, not just inhale it, but thats a whole other blog post. This list just needs to be hacked at, not the tiny nibbles I’ve been making. I can add to it faster than I’ve been working on it! Thats just a set up for frustration. So, in here I share with you my now even slightly shorter list (only because I shifted the weight to other lists…). I am making a commitment to get some of these things done! Lets say, at least one by the end of January. Maybe 2 in February (it is a leap year, so I have an extra day!). Those sad socks have been sitting on my list and in a random gift bag awaiting to be finished and worn for so long I might have to refrog the second sock again because I have no idea where I left off. Let me tell you, that is not a productive use of my time. Other things will be easier, two items are just buying MAKEUP for Bob’s sake. Why is this even on my list? Some also look easy, like getting hooks for hats and purses, but I’m funny and I want to buy them used at Restore or the Goodwill. I think I may just suck it up and buy them new. Since I haven’t found them yet, its taking more energy and resources to keep looking for something so basic.
