Ever had one of those days when there’s so much do to you don’t know where to start? Yep. That’s where I’m at. So, I did what any other girl would do and I begged a friend for help. Problem is… she’s where I am, too, just a different longitude and latitude. And we decided that when the going gets tough, you should make a To-Do List. I’m supposed to call her at 11 today and report on my progress.
That’s where I start to feel paralyzed. Maybe I should just spend some time on Pinterest. Don’t want to miss anything. Oh, wait… the baby’s hungry and needs a diaper change. Did I respond to that email I got yesterday? I’m kind of hungry. Maybe I should go to the grocery store. Do we need diapers? I think my mascara has dried up, should probably buy some new mascara… oh, yah, I saw that commercial for a new mascara that conditions and strengthens your lashes all while making you look 10 years younger. I think I’ll write a blog post about it.
And, Boom! It hit me. I can’t even write a To-Do List. Too much pressure.
And, Boom, Boom! It hit me again. I’ll write a Ta-Da List.
It’s obvious by looking around what needs to be done. I’m gonna make the biggest Ta-Da List that’s ever been made. Every time I need a break or finish a task, I’ll add something to the list.
I’ll update you later with my Ta-Da List. Wish me luck!
What’s gonna be on your Ta-Da List?
Update: That had to be the quickest weekend in the history of ever. And God Bless baby girl for hanging in with me while I made the longest Ta-Da list I’ve ever made. Ok, so it Was the first Ta-Da list I’ve ever made. And I must say that it definitely played to my strengths. By Sunday evening I had a real sense of peace about my accomplishments. I think I may be ‘on’ to something here. Here is a little picture of my big Ta-Da List. Thanks for the encouragement!
