Tunneling my way out from the Gazillion To-Do lists

This past week has kind of sucked. I don’t know if it has to do with constantly running from one event to another of if it has to do with my lack of energy when it comes to cleaning the house. Let me explain my crappy mood…. I couldn’t find my keys this morning so I had to walk to work. I am SUPER lucky that I live within a 25 minute walk to work and it saved my ass this morning. And I got SUPER ASS lucky that it didn’t start raining until I got to work. Because if it started to pour on me while I was walking to work, I think I would have turned around, went home and back into bed. I have no idea where my keys are. I spent 30 minutes looking for them this morning… thankfully I was planning on getting to work early so I had some extra time to look for them before I made the decision to walk.

On Friday, when we went to SXSW, I forgot my camera battery at home. I loaded up my SLR with all appropriate lenses but no battery. I left it charging at home. I was soooo pissed once we got to the music venue downtown, pulled out my camera when it hit me…. I left my battery at home. DAMN. Luckily I had my little point and shoot camera, but I was really hoping to get some cool shots with my big camera. Oh well…. I still had a great time, so I can’t complain to much.

BUT on Saturday when I left my battery to my point and shoot camera at home for the wedding I nearly lost it. WTF!?!?!?!? Granted, I had 3 other ladies at the house that were getting ready for the wedding so it was hectic to make sure we got out of the house on time, but still. I can’t remember the last time I left my camera battery at home, and to do it twice in two days is upsetting. I don’t know why I am having this issue of forgetting/losing things but I need to correct it.

I know that my desire to be lazy once I get home from work is not helping my quest to be more organized. I come home, make dinner, then want to veg for the rest of the night. Ugh. I’ve been ignoring the things I have to do with my dad’s estate; I know I need to be training for the Muddy Buddy, I need to actually go through the mail and get rid of stuff that we don’t need, and deal with stuff that is in there.

So blog world… I’m here to say that I need to be less lazy and get my life in order. No more leaving camera batteries, losing car keys, or wondering where my black slacks are…. Time to get my shit together! And it's time to actually do the stuff on my god damn To Do Lists!!

Dana, you are a great story teller! I really felt your pain! Be sure to look in the couch cushions really well if you haven't found your keys yet. Derric's keys were lost for months! We wrote it off as Hannah had hid them in some little toddler size hole somewhere. They will be somewhere that makes you feel even more angry. This I gurantee!

Thank's Hannah's Mom :o) I found my keys... they were in the garage. I forgot that I went out there to tighten the screw on my sunglasses. UGH!!! I am happy that I at least found those damn keys.... it would have been horrible to replace all of them.
