So I have an ever-expanding list of things that need to get done. It is one of those overwhelming, too many things, shut down entirely lists that won't go away.
I know that none of these tasks are too big that I can't accomplish each and every one of them. I know that they have to be done, and be done before this week is over. I know that I could have accomplished a number if not all of them if I hadn't done to the Wheel of Fortune casting yesterday. I know these things, but am doing little about them. Yikes.
So here is my list...one that can't be hidden in the bottom of my purse or used as a coloring page. And if admitting you have a problem is the first step, then...
"Hello. My name is Amy. I need to get these things done:"
*Write the conclusion to my research paper due LAST Monday.
*Enter the 165 applications I have so far for Angel Tree into the spreadsheet. There will be more tomorrow.
*Lesson plans....find teepee.....paper bag vests and pilgrim hats....corn art....
*Finalize reflections on lesson I presented 2 weeks ago. Wish I could remember what I had for breakfast!
*Call back the approximately 2 dozen messages on my voicemail about Angel Tree from last Thursday and Friday.
*Reading reflection ch. 7--should be first and fastest.
*Laundry. More accurately-put away 27 loads that are crowding my bedroom floor from washing here and there all last week between deer camp and school.
*Unpack camper. HMMM...wonder what marshmallows would look like if I put this one off until next October when we will use camper again.
*Walmart. Camping and living out of an ice chest for 10 days has somehow emptied our house of everything.
*T graph plot my research results. Wish I knew what that means.
*Gather items for JA meeting tomorrow night so we can write out tags for 400+ children. There will be more tomorrow.
*Family time? Homework? Koalaty reading slips? Bedtime stories?
*Start media contact to raise support and awareness for Angel Tree.
I didn't number any tasks because they are all equally daunting and important right now. If anyone has a magic wand to wave and get everything done, I will be forever greatful. If not, then I will be super enthused about prayer and support.
Now that I have aired my dirty laundry (literally) I can't hide from it any longer. Off I go!!!
