...by an OCD, work from home, crazy, high energy girl. lol.
I had a photo on Instagram last week similar to the one
below and had a comment or two about what it was.
I thought I'd share it here in more detail. If you're a list
person you might appreciate this and I'd love to hear some
of your ideas, too, on how you keep your home/family/job
humming along while living a crazy busy life.
I keep this list stored on my computer and edit it for the season.
When I made up, I typed out what I'd like to get done around
the house in an ideal world. And I will tell you right now
that I rarely, if ever, get everything crossed off the list in
a week's time. It's just a guideline, but I do manage to
get about 80% done. On Sundays I print off a fresh list
for the week. The right hand column is from my calendar
and I write out what will be happening on each day so I
can stay organized, remember appointments, etc.
The thing I like about it is that nothing is assigned a specific
day. The goal is to have the things done by the weekend so
I can do what I'm in the mood to do and how it fits in
with what else is going on here.
There are things that I do daily
that aren't on the list. They are things
such as making the beds, scooping the cat litter,
packing the boys' lunches, dinner and dishes, basic
straightening of the house...and working in my studio.
So if you had any doubts that I'm a little crazy, I've
certainly removed all doubt now, right? hahaha....
But with 5 adults living here (3 with special needs) a
couple of parakeets and a herd of cats, I need
some kind of order to keep my sanity! :)
Any other crazies out there?
Or are you more of a laid back person that hates
lists and structure? I envy you, sometimes! lol.
But this is the way I'm wired and accomplishing
things on my lists makes me happy.
How do you keep your home running smoothly?
