Planning The Day ( Or Lack Thereof)

I have been sadly slacking in my day to day organization. Yes, having a cold has not helped my motivation,but even before that,my enthusiasm was less than stellar. There are projects I could do,but instead of planning out when to do them,I wake up each day and go "OK....what am I going to do today?"My mind always goes to the obvious daily chores,but not the other things that need to be done.

While our garage has been cleaned out,it still needs organizing.Our attic needs a good going over,and now that the weather is cooler it will be more comfortable to work up there. I need to make more candles. Our bedroom still needs a good going over ( though most of what needs to be done is on Rick's side of the room!) We need to start redoing our bathroom and kitchen. I need to start planning for Christmas. There is plenty to do. It just needs to get done.

I am starting to knit again. I don't have wonderful knitting skills,and that is more due to not doing it on a regular basis than anything else. I want to make mittens and have bought a new knitting book.Right now,however,I am practicing my basic knit and pearl stitches by making a simple dishcloth.

Does anyone else have bouts of just doing the bare minimum? If so,what do you do to get yourself motivated to get yourself more organized?


  1. ME I DO! (me waving my hand up in the air)When the to do list gets so long I rip it in pieces and toss it! Start at one end of the house and work my way through by starting with the first thing I trip over. Well it's not that bad yet but it sure feels like it some days.

    When I feel like that food & cleaning come first then before I know it other things on my list are starting to get done. Now to figure out how to get a few more hours each day :)

    Would love to see you dishcloth when you get it done. I got some yarn a few weeks ago to start some new for our bathroom. I love them for face cloths

  2. Oh me too, I'm like it quite often! Some days I just can't be bothered! I reckon it's a seasonal thing, now the sun is out things look much better and we're getting heaps done. Some of us, I reckon, are just meant to snuggle up in the warmth of our homes and hibernate until spring.

  3. I'm glad I am not alone!:) I guess I just need to bite the bullet and do a little something each day ( aside from basic upkeep). Sometimes I just feel like I can't get out of my own way.
    I will post a pic of my isn't the prettiest looking thing ( I have a couple of dropped stiches which has left holes) but I am still plugging away at it,slowly but surely.
    You have made me feel better,ladies!
