I get questions now and again about how I get so much stuff done around the house. I have two kids who are 20 months apart, how do I have time to do X?
The honest truth is that I have no idea. Sometimes a weird thing in my brain takes over and when I come to stuff is done - ha! This happened once when I made a slip cover for one of my chairs. I have no idea how I did it, I just know that I was watching Anaconda one Sunday afternoon and by the time the movie was over, I had a new chair cover.
Even though I do tend to get a lot of things done, I'm still not overly efficient with my time (hello Internet time waster!). So a few weeks ago I was excited to discover the Reminders button on my iPhone. Yes I know it's just a task list (and I'm likely the last to know about it), but I'm not really a list maker and this one looked like it would be easy and fun to use.
As I think of things to do in my head, I add them to the list. It could be anything. You can see from my list that I have "Glue bottom to blue cup" (one of Leo's sippy cups needs fixing) so it literally could be anything. When I have five extra minutes, I look at my list and see what can be done in that five minutes. Then I check it off which is the best part!
Anyway I feel way more organized this way for some reason. It helps me feel like I'm accomplishing things throughout the day.
Of course, I could always just take a picture of my chalk board lists too which is what I did this morning on my way to the grocery store ;).
How do you keep things under control? Are you a list maker? Don't you just love checking things off?
