My Five Things – Week 1

I love to write to-do lists and check items off.  However, my nature is to become so detailed that my lists grow incredibly long only Samantha Stevens could accomplish them all.  I could have a good number done by the end of the day but still see the unchecked items as proving I’m less than.  The usual questions begin playing in my head.  “Why am I not naturally tidy?”  “How come I don’t have as much energy as [insert intimidating woman’s name here]?”

In an effort to ditch the whole party pooper persona that so easily rears her ugly head, I have decided to participate in The My Five Things Challenge over on $aving Toward a Better Life.  Rather than limiting myself to a one-day deadline, I will give myself five things to complete within a week’s time.

Here is my list for this week:

  • Begin packing up Christmas stuff and decide what should be kept out for January.  Snowmen are not just for Christmas!
  • Write and mail thank you cards.
  • Laundry.  This could really be a one-word list, but having only laundry listed would be almost as bad as having a more detailed list.
  • Plant fruit tree.
  • Move books from cabinets to bookcases.

I’ll let you know how it goes.

If you want to participate, sign up here.

Thanks, Tabitha, for this helpful idea.
