I’ve noticed something as I’ve gotten busier: I’ve stopped making as many to-do lists. Other than the last two weeks, I don’t think I’ve written a to-do list in nearly six months. I have been asking myself why, but I’m not exactly sure; I suppose it was an unconscious experiment to see how far life would descend into chaos without them. What I’ve learned is that:
- I’m still alive.
- So is Charlie.
- The car, bills, and everything else are all still paid for.
- I’ve gotten busier.
- I don’t think I’ve felt as much stress without a looming list of things I haven’t done yet staring back at me.
However, there are times when listmaking is very exciting. And since announcing yesterday that I’ll be expecting some helping hands this fall, I thought it would be the perfect time to look at the various to-dos in the kitchen, good ol’ fashioned list-style. I’ve been putting off this project for too long. It’s coming, baby. And I’m excited.
I already have a game plan for most of these items (I’ve had three years to think about it, after all). While nothing has really been purchased yet, I’m working up a design/mood board as we speak to put everything together. That will be coming later this week!
P.S. I’ve mentioned that I’ll be attending the Haven conference in Atlanta this week. My clothes will probably be wrinkled, and I’ll probably forget my toothbrush (sorry in advance, Pamela). If you are attending and you want to find me, I’ll more than likely be the loud one in the corner or at the bar grabbing another beer. Really. I can be very awkward. Call me The Ugly Girl if ya feel like it. And I like hugs just fine.
