Tryin' Something New . . .

Ever since my dream bubble was delayed - who knows, my dream of living near the beach may still happen - I have had very little motiviation to get much done.  So, I decided to play a game with myself.

Years ago, I used to put each of my house chores on a piece of paper and put them into a big bowl.  I would pick one out, set the time for 30 minutes and work on that chore.  Then onto the next 30 minute chore.  Well, it worked for me.  I think these days there is a name for that kind of behavior: ADHD.  :-)) Whatever!!

So, I have decided to incorporate that idea into a new game!!  I am going to randomly pull out one of my many, many, many, many bins and containers and see what is inside.  If it is a project (one or more), I have to finish one of the projects before moving onto a new bin or container .  If it is a container full of fabric or patterns, etc., I will put the contents into appropriate places or leave them in that container and LABEl the container - no ADHD stuff going on here!!

This is my first try at it today ~

I cleaned out the basket on my livingroom table, put some of the projects into some empty containers and decided I was going to use up this Scrubby ball of fibers.  So, while watching Mars Attacks, funny, funny irreverent movie, and a couple of HGTV episodes, I completed the ball and made 3 kitchen scrubbies!!

Hey, this idea is working!  Well, at least for one day so far, but who knows . . . . ?

Sounds like a great plan, Kris. I hope it works for you for more than one day!! : )
So are there new developments in the possible move?
