I started my day yesterday with all the best intentions in the world. I was making my list of things to do and checking it twice. I had things that needed taken care of that I had been putting off and I was determined to accomplish them. In other words, I had been procrastinating and if I didn't get them done it was going to come back and bite me in the hiney. I accomplished part of my plans, I didn't write, but I just couldn't get all of my things on my list done. I spent so much time going here, there, and everywhere and waiting in lines that I simply did not have the time. So, I now have a new plan. I have decided that I will remake my list, again in the order of importance, and arrange to take care of one or two things a day until I complete the list. That way I can get to do some writing too. What's happening in your world today?

My husband had a physiotherapy session at the hospital this morning. Coming back home I stopped for grocery shopping. It is so hot today that we stayed home in the afternoon.

It is hard to get much accomplished in the heat. I am glad you stay home in the heat of the day. It sounds like you had a busy morning.

@HazySue Today it's another hot day. I have cleaned the house and washed the floors early this morning. It's hard to work with the heat.

@LadyDuck I tip my hat to you. I don't know how you can get those things accomplished in the heat. I couldn't do it.

Doing those to-be-done things in parts sounds like a more workable plan. Too hot here today for my liking. The dog hates the heat too.

I can't blame the dog for hating the heat. After all he is wearing a fur coat. Poor baby.

@HazySue We always go for the furry pups due to the cuteness factor. If there ever is a time to choose another pup, it will be a chihuahua. My husband holding Molly as a baby. Too cute to not adopt her.

@Corbin5 Isn't she beautiful? I have a Pekingese. Definitely a long haired baby.

I have a to do list too, though it's not written down. I need to get this apartment cleaned for an inspection next week. It's not dirty, not really, but I do need to get it straightened up, vacuum, wash floors, that kind of thing. I just don't have the strength to do it all at once. My friend said she would help me. She came yesterday and vacuumed my living room. Today I'm going to wash the floors. I got them swept yesterday which was all my limited strength would allow. I wish I were young again. I could have had this done in no time yesterday.

You are lucky to have a friend to help you. That is kind of them. If we were young again we would be out doing other things, at least I would. You are lucky you can keep a list in your head. Once it gets in mine it seems to become lost in space.

@HazySue Some lists are easy to keep in the mind. You know what needs to be done. Now grocery lists are another matter. Though I don't keep a list, I'm starting to write down what I need. Writing it down does help me remember what I need as I still forget to take lists with me.

@just4him that is a problem, forgetting to take the list. I used to outline lessons from text books to help me remember lessons when I was in school It does help to write something down.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I do @HazySue the only thing that I do regularly is wash the pets bowls and feed them then change their water ..... after that it's all about whether or not I feel like doing something, of course I don't have anyone else to worry about and my furmily doesn't complain that much.

@rebelann you are a lucky lady. I can only say that when I retired I thought it would open up a whole new window of time. Unfortunately for reasons unknown I seem to be more busy now than I was then.

The day is nearly over here. It was a good one. We are planning some outdoor activities for a team building event planned for next month.

Isn't that the truth. I take a book to read while I am waiting but I become so impatient.

I do tend to forget that there are other things that get in the way and take up time. Sometimes life just gets in the way. The day here will o9nce again be hot and humid.

I never seem to have enough time to get everything done either. I need to either prioritize my list or get more hours in the day

I am all for getting more hours added to the day. Heck, I am ready to consider giving up sleep.

I hope to do some yard work after I walk Angel, then vacuum the family room, which has Angel's hair all over it, then do some work on the first magnet of the magnet order that I have going.

I am trying to get my blog back up and running. Unfortunately internet is being a pain in the hiney right now. I just put dinner in the crock pot for tonight, and will make mashed potatoes to go with it, to finish the meal. Other than that not a whole lot is going on here.
