New Rule - only four projects
Working on our house, there is always a few projects that are mid-stream. The majority of the bigger stuff is saved for when my dad visits or when Nick has a weekend free. The smaller stuff gets added to my list of things to do. I have a problem that I like starting projects much more than finishing, so there are a lot of little things that need to get done. Since I am home with James now, I am attempting to get the little stuff done between the feeding, changing diapers, walks and fussy times.
To help get stuff done I have implemented a new rule, only four projects going on at once. I have allowed myself space on the dinning room table to keep the current projects and cannot add another until one is complete. Currently the list is;
(1) Finish thank you notes from baby gifts
(2) Finish and mail James' birth announcements
(3) Sewing new pillows for the den couch
(4) Planning the garage sale
I am hoping this smaller list means I get things done much quicker.
