We are in the ides of March and there is plenty of time to tackle the below list. Yesterday I woke up with a burst of energy and cleaned the toilet and stove before Kev got out of bed. I love starting days that way, having already been productive before my morning coffee.
I use lists like anyone else: to organize, to feel like I'm exerting some measure of control over the life's madness, to stretch the days a bit as they whip by. How quickly weeks can slip away and blur together if not marked by these small accomplishments.
