I made my list, highlighted my priorities and scheduled out what needed to happen yesterday and today.  I got 5 out of 6 done yesterday, but today has been a bit off the rails.

The unexpected happened.  Something else has taken priority in my schedule, and there's no possible way for me to conquer today's 6.  Hmmmm....

Lessons: 

  1. Don't leave things until the last minute.  I know there have always been other fires I needed to tend to but tax deadlines are tax deadlines.  I need to learn how to be more organized so this isn't a scramble when life happens.
  2. Relax.  The priorities are what the priorities are.  Take another look at the 6 for today.  Will anyone die or get sick if I don't vacuum today?  Probably not.  Postpone that one.  
  3. Delight in the unexpected by being prepared for the unexpected.  Ahhh, now we're back to point 1.

Does anyone else have this happen?  You're all nodding aren't you?

Got it.

p.s.  Happy Easter!
