Friday Five: Notes to Self on a Busy Life

Five things I occasionally need to remind myself about:

1. Everything on your list is something you want to do, or–at the very least–a piece of something you want.

2. You’re the one saying, “Yes.” And you pretty much had a reason for each and every Yes.

3. President Obama has a much bigger to-do list than you do.

4. Too much to do is better, just about every time, than not enough.

5. And, finally, to paraphrase my husband, “You could have this much to do and a butt rash.”

And how’s the craziness in YOUR life going today?

    I don’t know about number 4 Becky. I might have to debate you on that one.

    And I’d love to know your husband’s exact quote, but we should probably leave that to the imagination! 😉

      Well, on any given day, number 4 might be inaccurate, but as a life, I’ll still go with it.

      The quote is basically, “You could have X AND a butt rash.” X being the variable.

    My version of point 2 is “And why did I think this would be fun?” Still and all, at one point I thought the project in question would be fun, so I try to channel my inner Mary Poppins to get through the more hectic days.

    Hubby sure knows how to find the silver lining! 😀

    My hubby and I always quote the line from Young Frankenstein: “Could be worse. Could be raining!”

      Usually I hate comparisons, but this one makes me feel better, cuz not only do I have less to do, I don’t have that huge stack of people trying to stop me from doing it! 🙂
