Being home this past week has really thrown my organizing skills into overdrive. Don't get me wrong, if given the proper motivation I could spend all day on the couch with my blankie and the remote for Netflix, it's a gift.
In my attempt to not fall into the abyss that is the couch I've begun making lists on things I need to do during the day. When I was working I had a short list, but those were things that I needed to get done that month, not that day.
Currently my lists consist of things like:
Call the Insurance man - check
Email resume to headhunter - check
Deposit checks - check
Write 500 words - halfish check
Remind BF to call accountant - check
Find Title for car - um, I'm moving this to tomorrow
Read Health Insurance paperwork - check
I did manage to do everything on yesterday's list with the exception of find title for car, but I'm pretty sure I know where it is, and I wrote 347 words (I had to leave to pick the boy up from school), so all in all not too bad.
The other day I actually went to Barnes & Noble to work in the cafe because all I could think about was cooking and doing laundry sitting at my kitchen island.
My loving son has embraced my being home with vigor....
Kid: Can you make bread during the day while you're home?
Me: I suppose you want Chex Mix too?
Kid: OMG! That would be awesome!
Me: Well, I already made the cookies you like.
Kid: Really? Where? (Looking around on the pantry shelves.) I love this no work thing! What's for dinner?
We are so going to get fat this winter.
