I struggle with: {Time Management}

See that? Go ahead, click on it.

I'm not ashamed of one thing on it! This is my personal list of things that I need to get done. As you can see, I'm having a time management problem. Only one thing is crossed off.

See, I've got this book. And I make my list(s) out in said book. For both work and home/blog/projects/sewing/shopping. If it' s not on the list, then it doesn't happen.

Oh and also, I got my first speeding ticket a little over two weeks ago. Thank god it was on my list, or I would have probably forgotten to call the lawyers about it.

While we're on the subject of things that irk me, my husband locked me out of the house and went out of town. I had to scale my two story house, try to remember if I had left any windows unlocked, and then shimmy through the boots. I wasn't that mad after wards {read: the next day} At least I was able to get in.

Is this what we turn into as we get older? I've always been big into making lists, but seriously, my memory is getting worse and worse.

......and 30 is only two months away

I'm totally with you on the lists!! Although since I started working from home my list-making has sort of stopped - and that's definitely not a good thing since I need to get things done! P.S. I'm impressed you didn't kill your husband for locking you out!

I can so relate and I am pushing 32! I am working at a bank with a schedule the can change hourly and then I come home to work on my etsy shop, not to mention Hubby works a totally opposite schedule to me. It gets crazy and a list is the only way to go!

So, I think I have some clear rocks you can have. (BTW - at first I thought it said clear SOCKS, and I was wondering where the heck you would find those!)

My memory is definitely worse! If it's not in my Outlook calendar, it doesn't exist in my book. Maybe we're all just too dependent on outside reminders (like outlook or lists)? It's like how they say your vision gets worse as you wear glasses...maybe our memory gets worse as they use these external crutches?

Liz- he was lucky he was still in the air when I got home! He felt so bad too. I was in tears, it was raining and I'm afraid of heights. Great combo!

slmpetersen, I know. It's so hard to switch gears isn't it?

And I'm totally with you on this Averill. The only thing I can think of is that I have to store so much more important information, that I have to purge other bits. That's where Outlook/the book come in.

And thank you Shanen!

Kristina with a K said...

Oh geez Gretchen! Is it gonna get worse? And Gayla, I'm in Denton. I remember someone telling me there was a great thrift shop in Lewisville.

This is what I have to say:
1. I'm sitting in front of my computer reading your blog for hours. This is ridiculous, I have to subscribe to it, you are so cute...
2.Is this what we turn into as we get older? Well, yeah, sadly. I had a sharp, photographic memory all my life, but after 40 I started to make lists for everything. Now I'm 50 and I can't live without it. There you have it! It's not so bed, you know, I always loved crossing accomplished things - totally satisfying!
