OK – I’m not sleeping too well because I know I have a MILLION things to do, I haven’t written a list and extra little details slip into my life that I arranged ages ago via different forms of media, (using Facebook, Text, Twitter or Email….I should stick with just the one really, because I forget how I know things and then think I dreamed them up). This is because I have a tendency to leave personal details right to the last minute, which tends to happen when I’m working!
My 40th is in 2 weeks time, I leave work in 3 weeks time and little Lady I breaks up from school in a weeks time, my mum’s birthday is next week and there are five invites for the 16th that need RSVPing – just looking at that typed out is quite stressful. I still need to organise my 40th, (the invites have gone so I best make a list for this right?), there are a million things I want to do for my job before I leave, (anyone fancy doing a PR strategy for the next 6 months please?), I need to book Lady I into a Yoga workshop for the first week of her school holiday…….ugh, I won’t bore you with all the other details, there are too many and actually, seeing this written down is making me feel a bit sick!!
I know I’m not alone with this weakness, I’m sure there must be others out there like me, but who would be stupid enough to admit such a bad weakness on the internet?…..er…..hmm – unfortunately, I do tend to hang out with some incredibly organised girlies who seem to have their life in perfect order, so I may be wrong! I blame technology, the weather, my health, work, my past, my children, my sister, my mum, my poor hubby, just to make me look a little less forgetful! The same applies with my ever growing To Do list, which I glare at, tut and go do something which was never a priority……like pluck my eyebrows or take princess stickers off the windows, (an awful job, it took ages and I was covered in stickers after)!!
One day maybe I will learn to use an XCEL spreadsheet for all of my tasks and budgets, I will write down lists for my personal life, (I do this for work, why not my life?), I will learn to prioritise my tasks and not blame others for my lack of personal organisational skills and finally I will ACTION tasks as and when they happen…..hell, one day Lady I might actually have done her homework on time for school….little steps first though!!
One day my home life will be one happily organised, zen vibe and one where I won’t be sitting bolt upright in the middle of the night with a look of terror and sweating after one of those niggley little tasks entered my brain during a dream!
Right, I need to get dressed, it’s midday!!…..Oooh look, a really cool Twitter thread…..!!
