I couldn't read your list, Lindsay. I felt like I was going to have a stress induced asthma attack. Of course I started reading that with my own list already in my head. Today I am going to choose to do less than perfect, and I will remind myself of that regularly.

We had carpet installed on Thursday, and I am still working on getting the upstairs back to normal while cleaning and decluttering as I go. This afternoon the installer is coming back to do the stairs and then it will be done.

Off to start the dishwasher, and then fold the laundry that just beeped for my attention.

I could do a mojo dance for you. Or...maybe not. You'd die of laughter and never finish anything!
What's the one thing that's bugging you the most? Go do that one thing.
