Let’s Be Reasonable

Rushing through the days, I’ve been daydreaming about my upcoming vacation. A week off! What an opportunity to get things done! Naturally, I’ve been making a mental list.

Be reasonable, I cautioned myself. Make a small list, maybe six things that I can actually finish. Panel the mudroom. Build the sheep paddock. Clean up everything for winter. Muck the deep bedding out of the sheep stall. Plus one or two others.

Of course, when I actually wrote the list, there were 78 chores on it. Thus I decided I would make the “must-do” items bold and red. There were 18 of those. Clearly it’s not my nature to be reasonable.

Yesterday’s parent day was grueling, after a long and grueling week. Today will be easier and will be done by 2 PM.

I am ready for the finish line.
