I’ve been gone for a while. Life got totally crazy for a while there, but it is beginning to feel vaguely under control. We took a brief trip back to the UK over the weekend, and the enforced time off from the farm and from work has given me a moment to pause, breathe, and think about my To Do List.
Part of my problem is that I can never remember what is in my brain from one five minutes to the next, so I live on lists and things that are written down. Not written down? Doesn’t exist. Doesn’t happen. Not important. A good To Do List is one of the staple means for me to function like a normal human being and not just sit in my chair playing Skyrim all day. A To Do List gives me structure, direction, and serves as my short term (and sometimes long term) memory.
I felt very proud of myself that I spent some time thinking about what I need to focus on when I got back from my trip, and I was all ready to construct a new list to keep me on track.
Except I can’t remember a single thing that I was going to write on that list.
