So this summer has turned into our busiest. We look like deer in the headlights!
Trips, camping, summer camps, yard sale, helping relatives move, managing a larger garden and then we all got sick with a summer cold. My life and home feel turned upside down. Some basic housework is getting slowly done but if it doesn’t smell or beg for food – it’s getting ignored LOL
I am not sure where to start because I feel so overwhelmed by the size and variety of things that need to be done. I have both smaller tasks and bigger projects. Here are a few examples off the top of my head:
Want to set up my camera so I can download the pics on it – been a “ to do” item for over a year
Lost my old cell, got a new one and need to add my crucial contacts
Need to respond to letter with some insurance info – non critical. Been walking by this letter for 2 weeks.
Hermit crab tank needs cleaning in a bad bad way
Fall garden starts are sitting in containers and need to be planted
Our bedroom has become the area to dump everything – needs a huge cleaning and I’ve been avoiding this majorly
There are bunches of other things like the above. I guess the first step is writing down what needs to be done. Although that list tends to get ugly and starts to include ridiculous things like reorganizing my bobbins. How do I make a realistic list or perhaps more than one list?
Once the list is made…. How do I decide what to do first? Tackle like items together, work small to large, mix n match smaller and larger tasks? Ugh, help.
Edit to add: I work full time so most things are getting done on the weekends, but smaller tasks could be done in the late evening. Unless I'm braindead :-)
