To-do lists are a basic necessity my life, but I'm rarely organized enough to make them.
I made a list last Saturday, and accomplished all the chores on the list that day, which is a rare pleasure! Some mornings I make a list of the important things concerning the kids, like checking on due dates for Harry's college and Isabella's summer program for things like tuition or dorm applications, or people/offices I have to call for them, like doctors and such. I don't put the stuff I dread on the list, so I can always put it off if I want.
Two things I must do but I'm dreading: 1) clean up the ant infestation I have around my kitchen sink, and 2) find the source of the fly infestation we have right now which is probably a dead animal somewhere in or near the house.
Things that I can tick off are 1) running (always on the list even if it's not written down), 2) dishes 3) laundry 4) wiping down kitchen counters.
8.5 miles this morning, making up for the short run yesterday. It was really beautiful out this morning!
After that, I walked my dogs before going out to walk my work dogs. Philip made Penne ala vodka for dinner.
Drink: I need one tonight, I think I'll have an Exit 4 Trippel while I watch the Flash tonight. Blather: The news has been reporting that a new type of virulent illness spread by deer ticks is on the rise, and the deer tick population will be enormous this year. Start wearing knee socks on the trail, XT!
Bonus: Why yes, but this is a weekday ending in Y.
Today, I rushed to get home to take Isabella to the dermatologist, but ended up canceling because I forgot to get a referral from my PCP. That put me in a mood, because I don't understand why I can't just go straight to the derm for something which the doctor has seen her for in the past, instead of going to the PCP and paying $40 so the doc can sign off on a referral, after he barely looks at her.
But I concede this is a battle I will not win, so now I have to schedule two appointments.
