Hectic is an understatement these days.  Today was no exception.  However, what I did today was...instead of retreating ( from my responsibilities) by going on Facebook or web surfing, I cleaned and organized.  Wow...the sense of accomplisment was a breath of fresh air.  And I did not even do that much cleaning or organizing...just a little bit here and there.  Still, it left me feeling more in control of my environment.  It's a nice feeling.

I know that Facebook is a huge timewaster yet I'm not doing a darn thing about it.  At least I recognize the problem...isn't that half the battle?  I wonder if there's a Facebook Anonymous program out there some where?  The ironic thing is that I don't even post that often.  I just go there to avoid doing real work!!!

I am officially ( to myself) declaring a semi moratirium on Facebook time.  I can only go on the website three times a day.  There's it's in black & white so I have to stick with it....I hope.  The eventual goal is not visiting the website on a daily basis.

Concentration...or lack thereof

I can't seem to commit to more than 20 interrupted minutes on any task.  The biggest distractor?  Facebook.  Still, I managed to:
1. sort through themail
2. paid bills
3. check-off receipts against credit card bill then shred receipts
4. made chili for boys
5. made vegetarian stir fry for myself
6. cleared recycle basket
7. clean kitchen
8. feed three hungry boys

I still have to get the boys to piano lesson by 6:30....the fun never ends.

 I'd be so much more efficient if only I could FOCUS and STAY on TASK

to list or not to list

I made a mental to do list but stopped there.  I hope I can remember everything - it's quite a long list.  I'm afraid of commiting it to paper as it would be a constant and tactile reminder of the things I haven't done!

99 bottles...

Our precious shower real estate was taken over by the countless bottles of shampoo and conditioner.  Consolidated four shampoos into one and repeated performance with conditioner.  Precious space reclaimed. 

Feels so very cleansed!
