To-Do List

Today was one of those days where my to-do list was longer than the hours in the day.

  • plan menus
  • go to Hy-Vee
  • pick up prescriptions
  • get gas
  • go to work
  • do laundry
  • fix dinner
  • plan 3 lessons for modeling
  • help Sam with Google Slides
  • help Max with senior stuff
  • bake snack for small group tomorrow night
  • clean kitchen floor
  • write blog post
  • set up the dog fence
  • do expenses
  • answer emails from Friday
  • write monthly reports from last week

I enjoy being able to check things off the list. Checking things off motivates me to keep going. That’s why I put EVERYTHING on my to-do list. Thankfully it snowed so I couldn’t do the dog fence. One less thing. Hubby did laundry. He is my hero! But the lessons. I’m a perfectionist. If I am going to model, I like to know where the class has been and prepare my thinking and the lesson. This takes time. Time I don’t have tonight. I need to make a choice: continue plugging away until it is perfect or call it good and let it go allowing myself thirty minutes of my nose in a book before bed?

What would you choose?

  1. Love the list. It’s great to check off and know that you have done well. I’m with Elsie above. Relax! Hope you read a book. I love reading YA novels to share with kids. Riding Freedom by Pam Munoz Ryan is a favorite!
