Feelings of Accomplishment

I think someone slipped me some crack or speed or maybe just spiked my coffee with some herbal pick-me-up because I have been a to-do list machine this evening! For those who don't know, I love to-do lists. However, sometimes I keep adding and adding without ever subtracting any of them. There's one of my biggest problems: I'm a great thinker (for a blonde) but getting my plans into action...not so much. So, today at work I made a mini to-do list just for today. It seems to have worked. Ever since I got home, I've been on a roll.

So far, I've:
-Made dinner and did the dishes;
-Got rid of the dead plants from the front yard and watered all plants that are still alive (I wanted some new ones anyway);
-Swept and vacuumed all floors;
-Filled the pool back up;
-Cleaned the patio area and sprayed the deck;
-Sprayed the backyard for bugs (it's that time of year again);
-Had a beer (very important to rehydrate yourself); and
-Straightened up the house.

The only thing left on my list is take Wilson for a walk and hula hoop. I feel so accomplished! It's nice to get a few things out of the way and finally off that list. Tomorrow is a whole new day just waiting for it's own mini list. Maybe I'll get started on that right now.

What the hell is Button doing when you are doing all this?

Supervising, of course.

Congrats on getting your to do list done! I like how having a beer was on there!
