Keeping up with Myself...

Monday, June 03, 2013

Most days I see my long to-do list and think, of course I can get all that done today... but then as I reach for the bills I have to pay, I see a coupon I don't want to forget, which leads me to the magazine that I should really put in the bathroom so I can actually read it (LOL), where I see a counter top that needs a lysol wipe, so I grab the wipes and in the closet I realize I've been collecting all those toliet paper rolls for a long time and it's time to pick them all up off the bottom of the closet and put them in a bag to donate to the animal shelter... which is when I end up under the kitchen sink grabbing a bag to put them all in.. where I see the other container of lysol wipes which reminds me to actually wipe the counter top in the bathroom that I saw earlier... Really, I wonder how I get ANYTHING done!! :) I swear I go in circles trying to keep up with myself, until I really begin to trip over my own feet... Usually, what makes me stop and regroup is the moment I go for the same item a second time and suddenly I think wow, did I already do this? I am not a procrastinator by any means.. am I? I really want to get it all done but I distract myself constantly by following my wandering mind. It's really pretty hilarious. Sometimes I really think I'm living in a comic strip in the Sunday paper, which of course reminds me that I saved the comics from the last paper I bought so I could read them later... where did I put them? oh yes, with the bows, so I can use them as wrapping paper sometime in the future... of course, right? I can really relate to my one dog... she runs through the yard picking up a toy and running away with it, but happens to pass another toy, so she drops the first one and picks up the second one.. and it's really amusing to watch, mainly because she is just loving the whole game of it... even if she's not really trying to play! Tomorrow, I will make sure to try to stay on task... one at a time... finishing each before moving on to the next. For now, I'm going to go to bed. Well, first get the dog treats ready, then wash the dishes, then get tomorrow's lunch packed, then, then, then...
