I just knew that when the kids started back to school things would start getting done around here. And by "things would start getting done", I guess I really mean "I will start getting things done".
But alas, we are on day ten of Mommy Being Free to Get Things Done and all I have managed to do is write and rewrite my to-do list. And in the midst of all of this writing and rewriting, the only things I have managed to cross off of the list are things like "laundry", "grocery shopping", "cook dinner" - all things that I do every day anyway and that weren't even really on my list in the first place. I just went back and added them to the list so that I could cross them off. Pathetic, isn't it?
I just can't seem to get motivated for the tough things on my list like "clean out refrigerator", "dust baseboards", "clean out closets", "dust blinds". Who wants to tackle a to-do list that is full of nothing but cleaning? It almost makes me want to get a full time job so I can afford a maid. And I'm not joking.
Well, it's almost time for the kids to get home from school. I guess I can scribble "write boring blog post" on my to-do list and cross it off.
Ahhhh...it feels so good to cross something off my list.
