After sleeping in until eleven, I felt so much better that I decided to make this a productive day after all. I made a list of things to do: clean up, dust, vacuum, mop the floor, clean bathroom and toilet, repot some plants and iron clothes. It's funny how I always feel a lot better after making the list, even though I haven't actually done anything yet. I did promise myself to be able to relax after every chore, so I got to watch a few Friends' episodes after and during the chores too.
But I noticed something I do everytime I make a list: I add things to them that I have already done. Like today, when I saw my desk, I decided it was time to pay some bills and do some other administrative things. So I took care of them, and then went to my to-do-list and added "pay bills", which I could then of course mark out right away. I allowed myself to do this, because it was also a chore that had to be done and I did it. But really, it was fraudulous. Bad Nic! Does anybody else do this too?
It's four o'clock now and all I have to do is iron clothes, and then I'm totally done with everything on my list. And the things that I added to my list. I feel so much better!
