So lately I have been having a string of days that I like to call "I keep doing stuff but nothing gets done" days. I make my nice pretty and/or messy list (sometimes I like to make a really sloppy list so then when I accomplish things on it I feel like I get double points for organizing things...weird, I know), and then as I start to do things on the list, I realize that every time I take a step in the direction of accomplishment, I really end up giving myself something else to remember and do. Here's an example:
My sister and her family are coming into town this weekend. I ask her what groceries I need to have since she's bringing the two little ones with her. She gives me a few specifics (like milk and bananas) and just some general stuff. So I decide to be all super prepared and go to the store on Saturday and I get all sorts of stuff. But then I realize that if I buy milk and/or bananas on Saturday, they're going to be bad by the time they get here this weekend. So now instead of making just one trip to the store, I will have to make two trips. I didn't really accomplish anything.
Here's another example: I got new windows (yay!). The Home Depot guy stops by my house the other day with this form for me to fill out because the city of Garland gives you a one time credit on your utility bill if you get energy efficient windows (which I did). So I sit down to fill it out but realize I don't have all the information. I call HD guy to ask him what to put down and he tells me I have to call a different person to get that info. Again, I didn't accomplish anything because I still have to call somebody to finish the paperwork.
Aaaaarrrrrrggggggghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate everything!!!!!!!!!
It makes me completely unmotivated to do anything because I know I'm just going to have to re-do it again later. Blah!
Everything is wrong. The end.
P.S. Please don't tell me that things will get better soon or any of that nonsense. It'll make me want to throw up. Just scream really loud that everything is wrong with me okay? Thanks.
