I love to-do lists, not only because of the glow of accomplishment that comes from crossing things off, but also because of the ridiculous juxtapositions that are our lives. This morning I sat down at my desk to find the following tasks:
Finish project summary
Wash kids’ soccer clothes
Write guest post
Read violin book
I am officially a writer, laundress, researcher, and carpenter. Maybe some people get to separate their lists into an office to-do and a home to-do, but I’m guessing most of us take on multiple roles in the course of a day.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go pull the muffins out of the oven. I forgot to add “baker” to my list.
