Lists can be fun, and I always make mine fun. I have a list for today and posting on my blog is NOT on my list. However, it will be now, with a stroke through it to show that I have done it. My problem is that I make lists and get sidetracked, which means that I don't get everything done on my list. To make myself feel more accomplished, I add the other things that I did so I don't feel like a failure.

My list:
1. Call Lee-Ann (I have done this and left a message. I really want to connect with her and haven't been able to). Lee-Ann, please call back!

2. Make peanut butter rice krispie squares and cut them in heart shapes.

3. Laundry (gotta get started on this).

4. Clean the house ... this will never be done.

5. Measure for carpets for the bedrooms.

6. Come up with something different for supper tonight using ground beef (since I'm home today and can put some time into it - oh, I'm thinking stuffed shells - yummy - Shaun loves those).

7. Make Valentine cards for Shaun & Spencer and get their gifts ready before they get home today.

There are lots of other things I want to accomplish today, but lets face it. I will get sidetracked and work on some of those things not on my list and will probably not even start on #4 above!! Who cleans their house on a vacation day from work anyway?

Happy Friday everybody. Oh, if anybody loves lists, check out this super simple list maker website:

Trying to Fly!

Happy New Year, or rather, Happy February 1st!! One whole month from 2009 is gone already. Where did it go?

Do any of you fly with Flylady ( I am really wanting to follow her routines, but time just goes by so fast and I just can't seem to keep up with it all. I'm not sure if I'm a procrastinator, if I'm lazy or what my issue is. I'm thinking a bit of both of those things combined result in me not keeping an organized house like I would like. Thankfully my husband, who works shift work, can be persuaded to hang out with the vaccuum cleaner now and then. Thanks to him & Spencer, my house is clean ... and redecorated (I think some things will find their way back to where they were originally - sorry Shaun). Now I just have to keep up with it, again. Wish me luck!
