Tuesday Time to Tackle: Everything!


  original source


That pretty much sums up my to-do list for the day.  :-)  I spent the morning with a pad of post-it notes and a pile of paperwork.  Now that I have my to-do list more organized, I should be able to get my mind off of shuffle.  

How do you handle long to-do lists?

  1. I get overwhelmed with long lists, so I try hard to focus on three or four items.

  2. I prefer to ignore the long ones. :)

    Really, I have to organize the list into smaller ones.

  3. I use Google Tasks and I don't think I've ever had a day when I got to check everything off the list. Maybe someday!

  4. Divide a long list in 2 or 3 smaller ones or if that's too hard to do, just start on the top and work my way down. I love making lists and crossing off everything I already did. Sometimes I'm sneaky and put something on the list that's already done, just so I can cross something of at the beginning. Silly maybe, but it works for me....

  5. My lists are more timed goal, finish laundry and put clothes away by Thursday - plant flowers and clean yard by mother's day (does that make sense ) then broken done by categories, house, cleaning, shopping -
    Now hubby always has a to do list for his day off (makes one himself) - and usually it is left on the counter top, if I see it I always add to the list - hug wifey, when you are at the store buy something nice for wifey, tell wifey you love her - things like that LOL
    Good to hear you are not on shuffle - :)

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

Ten Things of Thankful: It's Only January, but I'm Taking a Break

A new year often brings re-commitment, re-direction, and renewal of enthusiasm. A blank calendar shows possibilities: routines to be developed, and breaks to schedule in. While I know it's only January--the traditional "routines to be developed" phase--I'm shaking things up and starting with a break. I will be away from my blog and generally off-line for the next few weeks, but never fear, the Ten Things of Thankful link-up will go on. I will respond to comments and read linked posts when I return from my break. 

This week, I'm thankful for:

1. Book club. When I was a child, I had no problem at all living with my nose constantly stuck in a book. As an adult, I am trying to remember that it is OK to spend hours reading. Book club is a step in the right direction. I "have to" read, but I'm having fun, and have given myself permission to read other books, too. 

2. Thrift stores. I wanted an actual, physical copy of The Help (the book club selection for Fe…
