It's Monday. Time to start a new week. The weekend schedule is over. Concluded is the two-day volleyball tournament, two different church services for different family members, a lovely dinner party, and homework.
Now the kids are off to school, and the hubby to work. I have 6 to 7 hours of "freedom." Time alone before the 3:00 plan of action kicks in. Just me and the dog.
My mind is swirling. I have so much I want to do in addition to the so much I have to do. How do I sort it out? How do I prioritize? How do I implement?
A list. Yes, that's a good thing, a list. Problem is right now I have several lists. One is a Shopping List for the next errand run. One is a more immediate Must-Do Soon...Today if Possible list. I also have a Must-Do Later... Today if Possible list. One is more of a Note to Self for those things I don't want to forget but which don't require an immediate action. And that's not even counting the items scrawled on the daily calendar, or the chores that don't need a list, they so obviously need to be done.
Yes, I am a firm believer in The List. I get much pleasure from crossing off a job, signaling a finished task, an accomplishment made.
But this morning I am overwhelmed with the little things. I am paralyzed with freedom. I can choose this over that. That over this. Where do I start? I guess I start with avoidance. Hence this blog.
