This is my 1st official week out of work. I quit my job! I only worked three days a week but it was a very stressful job. I have never been able to spend Spring Break or Summer or Christmas break home with my daughter. I am a pediatric dental hygienist, there is no time off allowed when the kids are out of school. That's really hard to do when you have a family! Not all offices are like that but the one I worked at was. I had been there for almost 11 years & I am glad I am done! You cannot imagine how much better I feel not going to work! Monday I was home with my daughter & we had part of the best day (she is 11 going on 16 so you can imagine!). But it was still great not to have to worry about what I was going to do with her while I was at work & she was out of school! Today I cleaned the house, even dusted! That is something I never do! (the dusting, not cleaning!) I think that stems from my childhood. My mom always made list for my sister & I to do while she was at work (I was raised by an amazing single mom!!). She said the list would "keep us out of trouble". We weren't bad kids, I mean 2 girls, how much trouble could girls get into? Well there was the time we used the mattress to slide down the stairs... But anyway, that wasn't my idea & no one got hurt! Since I was a kid I have hated dusting! I always dreaded to see that on my list! As for the list thing, it ruined me!! I mean seriously, I cannot function without a list!(thanks, Mom!) If we ever do away with pens & paper I will not be able to get out of bed! I'm not kidding! I have a list for everything, even cleaning the house! I keep a list in my purse of things I need to look for when I am out shopping(thrifting). It is C.R.A.Z.Y!! Here are some examples:
This is the list on my kitchen desk.
This is the list below the list on the kitchen desk to remind me what I need to do today.
Yes, I have to mark things off the list. I don't feel complete without doing that. The column on the right is what I need to talk to my daughter about after cleaning her room.
Here are the list on my kitchen chalkboard
This is the list from my purse.
It is a sickness I'll tell you!
