To-Do Lists

Normally I LOVE marking things off my list. I will even go as far as putting things on there that I've already done just so I can mark them off. I'm not very organized (as the recipes strewn across the table testify) but lists make me happy.

Since I have a few more days until school starts, I decided to make a rather ambitious to-do list while I'm at home. Today's list read like this:
  • Go to dentist and pray my broken crown is not a big deal
  • Pick up package from post office
  • Get book from library
  • Deposit check
  • Organize recipes
I knew the last item on my list would take a long time, so I was really proud of myself when I had completed 1-4 and it was only 10:30 a.m. If I were to write down what I've actually done today, it would look a little more like this:
  • Play with the dogs
  • Eat cheeze-its
  • Look at recipes
  • Watch "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Price Is Right" (because we all know that I love a good game show!)
  • Make a New Year's card, order it online, and pick it up at Wal-Green's less than an hour later
  • Watch "The Great Muppet Caper" (I really have no idea what happened here)
  • Move recipes around
  • Wash sheets and comforter in guest room
  • Check facebook
  • Read blogs
  • Sit down to work on recipes for about an hour
  • Resort to blogging about procrastination and lists
There you have it, folks. I'm definitely not cut out to work at home.
