"Road to a home" is something one of our list people came up with. Her idea was to make a list every day -- one maintenance job that needed attention, one task towards a long-term project, and one thing to do for herself to help improve her moood. It was helping me a lot... I'm going to try it again. But I'm adding
MAINTENANCE: 1. Catch up on laundry & folding. 2. Empty the perilously high-piled dish drying rack.
PROJECT: Shed purge! Give away the old singer & the microwave from Rob's office (the one that got re-orged out of existence by the governor). Find the box of winter bits ... somehow I seem to have one of every glove, but no mates to any.
ME TIME: A nap before taking my daughter to her friend's birthday party. Since she had us up at 5:30 this morning, I may even try to get HER to take one too.
THINK POSITIVE: I set up coffee before coming down to laundry&LJ; my husband's making breakfast...and I think it smells ready. So glad to have a washer/drier in my house so I don't have to lug all this to the laundromat!
