That Ol' Weekly List Black Magic

Last week's score: 14/31 + 1 bonus = 48% = F :(

So, I'm lying in bed last night stressing because we don't have the house completely unpacked and set up. "After all," I think, "It's been three whole weeks." We knocked ourselves silly this weekend running over the hill to do a bunch of shopping, putting up shelves, etc.

I started looking at last week's list and realized that it falls down because of what's NOT on it. Like, the daily chores (there are at least 12 per day) that have consistently gotten done. This list ends up being the "extra-curricular" stuff, and we managed to knock out half of it. So, rather than beating myself up, I'm following the BBC's suggestion and having a life-sized floral sculpture made of me. It'll look lovely on the deck!

Getting extras done on top of the regular stuff has to count for something!

Three weeks is nothing when it comes to moving, especially an entire household like you have. If it was three weeks of nothing but moving stuff, fine, but you've been doing so much else. Give yourself a break!

BTW, you have offically been named "a hoot!" by the ladies at the chirpractor's office ;-)

I'm a hoot! Does this mean I get a discount?
