My "To-Do List"

At work, I'm a real stickler about operating from a list of things that I update every day. This keeps me on top of what didn't get done the day (or week) before and keeps me focused on where I need to concentrate my efforts for the day at hand. This nasty virus that I have kept me home on Monday and Tuesday last week and even though I went into the office on Wednesday, I don't know if I'd actually consider it "work."

To illustrate this point, here's a copy of part of the list that I created for Wednesday.

To add insult to injury, I STILL didn't get caught up on all of that e-mail.

This made me laugh pretty hard. It's something I would do even if I wasn't sick!

How's the email thing going Rog?
Have you caught up yet? Ha. Just teasing you. I make lists like that all the time. I do my best to finish it off. Sometimes it's rough. Nice easy post to read. Now, I can scratch that off my daily list of always, "Check Mr. Shumway's posting." Which I do daily. It's too good to pass up.

Yeah, but what's the oldest item in YOUR inbox?? Mine? May 6, 2006.

Drowning is right.

I got hit with a case of the Three Kids. Followed by a bout of laziness. Trumped by a full-time job of edumacating the hooligans into full-time freaks. And geeks.

It's spelled "ketchup" and you should definitely clean it off your email.

I guess those emails are pretty important!

I had a dream about you and your wife! My family came to your house (probably to see that lamp) and my 3 year old spilled laundry soap (the wet kind) all over your carpeted stairs (don't even know if you have carpeted stairs) and your wife was super kind and understanding while I was super embaressed. Then we were out front and you went to get your camper which had your balloon animal supplies (a side job) and you made a huge balloon sculpture for us. Then your wife drove her camper up to show us her side job of making cinnamon rolls.

Strange but true.

I make lists all the time. Then lose them. Then find them and realize I forgot to do something important. Then crumple them up and throw them away in self-loathing disgust.

:-)

Hope you got your email on.

So, the last thing on the list - at first glance I thought it said "get in flight club". I don't know where that came from!

It's "Get in Fight Club." I figured it would be a fun way to interact with some other guys and I have decent medical insurance.
