Over the weekend I attempted to tackle at least a few of the 12 items on my High Priority To Do list.
(I have several To Do lists, and it's a fact that some of the items on my Lower Priority To Do list will never get done. Still, at least I am aware of what needs doing. At least there's that.)
One of those on the High Priority list that I did not get around to doing was taking new pictures. As a result I am showing pictures from around Thanksgiving.
The first two are in Mathews, the next three are from Big Hair Envy's house.
Of those 12 High Priority items, I completed only two things, one of which was setting up our monster of a fake Christmas tree. This arduous task, which I dread each and every year, took a minimum of five hours on Saturday, between hauling it up from the basement, assembling it, stringing the lights, and decorating it.
The end result looks like
(Here, insert the sound of CBW scratching Christmas Tree off her list. Also insert the sound of her banging her head against the wall because she never got around to the internet Christmas shopping she planned to do. She loathes shopping and will do everything in her power to avoid going across the river and setting foot in an actual store where there are (gasp!) other people! This internet thing is right up her alley, but she needs to stop talking about it and actually do it.)
Those other High Priority items need to get done this week, in between work and traveling to basketball games.
Speaking of basketball, the Mathews JV girls won their game Friday night. Chesapeake Bay Daughter still isn't feeling 100% but she gave everything she had out there on that court.
There's a game tonight in Northumberland and one Thursday in Lancaster. That's a whole lot of driving.
Given all that--plus my dearth of new photos, postings this week will be sparse.
In the mean time, and circling back to the To Do lists previously referenced, recently I've been contemplating an even greater To Do list--my Bucket List.
In this (click here) blog post from 2008 I sort of came up with one (under Seven Things I Plan To Do Before I Die), but it really needs updating. For example, I am pleased to see that I've actually done some of the things I talked about doing.
What are seven things you hope to do in this lifetime?
Have a great week and hopefully I'll get some new photos before the week is out.
