The chaos that came with my lost (not really lost) keys from last Monday continued well into the week. I paid the incorrect amount to the after school program, I calculated my time sheet incorrectly, etc. The smallest tasks were challenging.
In a surprising turn of events, I ran 10k with a 9 minute pace. My fastest ever! Of course, the Garmin was probably malfunctioning.
Thankfully, this week is a lighter load. My head is still cloudy, and I am still not sleeping well, but I know that will pass.
After a conversation I had with my mom last week, I do want to clear up a few things.
The first is that I do not have to-do lists around my house. I think my mom is under the impression that I have multiple lists. She said that I probably got that from her. And then I started to wonder if everyone else thought the same. I do make references to the “to-dos” a lot. This doesn’t refer to a list though. These are simply those activities that need to get done. I don’t need to make a list to know that I need to do the dishes, put away the laundry or clean the bathroom. Those tasks are constant. Why bother with a list?
I do make grocery lists though. I can’t operate without one. I end up with a ton of produce and bread but no real food. Well, maybe some lunch meat and cheese. I do like to eat sandwiches.
The other issue to clear up is that I did not forget to pick up the Girl Scout cookies. That was a dream/nightmare. So if you were judging me because you thought that I forgot them, you can stop right now. If you were judging me for eating a ton of cookies in one sitting, I suppose you can continue.
Thank goodness for the long weekend coming up. I know, I realize that it is only Monday, and I am looking forward to the weekend. My 8:30 bedtime last night conflicted with Downton Abbey, so I will have to catch up over the weekend. I am also looking forward to clearing out some of the clutter that has been accumulating since the beginning of cookie sales. Hopefully the ladies and I can get some crafting done. I think all three of us have a few unfinished/not yet started projects.
And I just realized that the previous paragraph looks like a to-do list. Hmm…I can picture my mom smiling as she is reading this post…
