    I think it’s a tie between the first one and the last one… 😛

    Go get a glass of water and drink it while you read your Bible for 15 minutes. Drive to the library and continue on to the grocery store planning supper on the way. Pray the rest of the drive. Pray some more on the way home. Call Sara while you start the laundry and clean the bathroom. Tim’s haircut can wait-it looks good long 🙂 But you get the idea. Some days you just have to group things together and look forward to the days that you can spend more time on each thing.

      I did drink 20 oz of water while I did my devotions, I was so proud of myself. I went to the library on the way to the grocery store, too. Haven’t got to praying yet, but Sarah called me, so that worked out well, plus I checked out a movie at the library and watched it while I finished all the apples. Whoohoo! 🙂

    My list advice came to me from a professor while I was in college. At the end of each day, completely tear up the list and throw it in the trash. Start a new list the next day.

    If I were you, I’d rip that list into three pieces, and have one piece for each day. Or something on that order. Don’t try to do it all at once! (Can you tell I’m in the gear of seeing how little actually NEEDS done?)
