Organizing my out of control to-do list


Okay, so every day hasn’t happened, yet. I’m working on it though.

I have divided my list into different parts


Out of self preservation, I have divided my list into different parts.

√ Writing
√ Jewelry
√ Projects
√ Electronics
√ Spirituality
√ Self care
√ Relationship care

√ Outline
√ Research
√ Writing
√ Editing
√ Blogging
√ Marketing
√ Learning how to draw
√ Learning how to write better
√ Learning how to outline
√ Learning how to market

There may be more in this list, but I think this gives you a pretty good idea of what is needed.

I’m pretty sure I’m leaving out quite a bit of things to do here, but I’m at a loss for what they are.

√ Research what is wrong with it
√ Organize supplies
√ Photograph before, during, and after fixing it
√ Buy parts needed to fix it

Again, I’m sure there’s more, but I can’t think of anything else right now.

This list is pretty much the way it should be. I don’t think there’s much more that needs to be added.

Self care
√ Research time management
√ Organize time
√ Photograph process
√ Buy supplies needed
√ post update
√ Research supplies
√ Research best practices
√ Shower
√ Eat
√ Relax
√ Manicure/Pedicure
√ Laundry
√ House cleaning
√ Dishes
This list could probably go on forever, but I will stop here because I think you get the idea.

No one helps me with any of this. Some people, once in a while, will say they will help, but either they don’t or they do a piss poor job and I have to redo it.

I’m not looking for perfection. Well, I do from myself, but not from others.

I’m just saying that if you take out the trash, put a trash bag back in the can. If you wash the dishes, make sure there’s no food still on them when you’re done. If you sweep the floor, don’t leave a pile of dirt behind the broom in a corner.

These are the bullshit things I have had people do to me when they help me. I have had to wash out my trash can three times a week because they didn’t put a bag in it. I’ve had to rewash most of the dishes because they had food stuck to them. I’ve had to hunt down my broom and sweep up the dirt because both were left in a corner.


Simple fix for both of us. You, of course, don’t get the bragging rights that you helped me, but I don’t have to tell people you brag to that your help was not only worthless, but detrimental.

Is there any wonder I feel overwhelmed all the time?

Relationship care
