a little while ago Adrienne posted about her method of getting and staying organized...
she talked about having a spot for a Brain Drain where she writes down all the things she wants to get done that go floating through her lovely head.
Well, I have that too...it's my todo list. About once or twice a week I get so many things running through my head that I want/need to do that I need to sit and write them all down or a) I get terribly overwhelmed and b) I start forgetting things (usually the important ones).
Today on the way to work was one of those times. So when I got to the parking lot I grabbed a sheet of paper and emptied my overflowing brain...
Here's the result:
add the kids religious education classes to the big calendar
add the riding lessons to same calendar
weed flower bed
put bills in mail
call orthopedic specialist for Gator's follow up apt
call PCP for referral to othopedic specialist
work on lagniappe--get in mail
get fabric for ghost costumes --use Jo Ann's gift cert
finish apron for Sugars' dress
make cross template and start cutting plastic canvas for this year's Christmas gifts
make binding for Sugars' quilt
finish Sugars' quilt
dig bed for roses and daylillies
buy manure and soil for new bed
plant roses and daylillies.
There, I feel better now!
maybe you can see why I must make a short list of goals in order to get ANYTHING done!!
Oh and stop by this post on Adrienne's blog and read her very flattering take on quilters!!
