Then there’s the ever-popular sidetracking questions like, “Will you play a game with me?” and “I’m hungry; what are we having for lunch?”
Don’t get me wrong, I love having the girls at home. But every night I fall into bed and wonder what I did that day.
So the other night I decided to revise my to-do list. Instead of worrying about all the unchecked items, I decided to focus on what I did accomplish. Here’s the revised list:
- I didn’t get any writing done, but I did get a new idea for an article.
- I didn’t clean the van, but I did go on a walk with the girls.
- I didn’t sort through the rest of our summer clothes, but I did have a good chat with a friend on my way to pick up the girls.
- I didn’t finish critiquing an article for my writers group, but I did play a game of checkers with Madison. (She won, by the way!)
- I didn’t cook a big, fancy dinner, but I did get the floors vacuumed.
And now that I think about it, summertime might be a good time to forget the list. After all, I got this blog done – and it wasn’t even on my list.
