Despite this, though, real progress was made. Getting dates on the calendar really does slow down the stress – who knew? Now to get the tasks required to perform my long-term projects out of my head and onto something external. That’s the project for this week. I’ve gone to the doctor, so the muzzy-headed feeling should diminish.
I’m going to continue with the calendar thing, because it’s working. As for other lists, just having them on paper in a drawer doesn’t get them done. That’s got to change.
It has also been brought to my attention that if I can get someone else to shoulder some household tasks around here, I should be able to deal with the persistent problem that no organizational method can handle: how to fit 40 hours into 24 and still sleep eight hours. Of course, since my husband’s time is about as occupied as mine, this is going to require convincing young adult males that yes, there are to do lists more important than theirs. Wish me luck.
