Why I Get Nothing Done

I made a list this morning of a bunch of things I need to do this week. Among them: reorganize the kitchen (cabinets, etc). I started messing around with stuff on my “pantry” cabinet shelf and noticed the front doors really needed to be wiped down. So I started wiping them down and noticed the floor was in need of sweeping. Sweeping the floor made me have to move a bunch of cereal boxes out of the way (I didn’t have a good storage solution for excess pantry items found on sale), which made me realize that my tall, square wire shelving thing from Target was simply inadequate for that space, and that I was sure I had a wider one around the house somewhere that would better suit the purpose. There were two in different locations that needed to be screwed together to meet my needs. To do this, though, meant taking all of them completely apart and starting over. When I was done, I had a tall rectangular unit for the kitchen and two short ones that I wasn’t sure what to do with. Remembering that our closet upstairs in the master bedroom is in serious need of help also, I took one of the short square shelves upstairs and proceeded to completely empty that closet. Doing this reminded me that I’ve been meaning to weed out clothes to freecycle. When I got the closet put back together, it made a sharp contrast to the rest of the room and so I proceeded to clean it all up including dusting under the bed. While doing this I found a bunch of hair stuff that belonged in the bathroom which led me to a trip in there where I noticed that somebody tied the sink fixtures together with yarn and, oh yeah, I still haven’t brushed my teeth yet today so I need to do that…

You get the picture.

    Megan – this scene has happened at our house recently too! It seems the list of things to do is never getting any smaller……
    Though – through all of that, it sounds like you did get some great things accomplished!

    Sounds familiar!
    I need to get my husband to read this so that he can understand why my “to-do list” never seems to get done even though I swear I do accomplish something every day!
