I didn’t do too badly this past week, but I didn’t do too great, either. Doing well on dieting and working out, though. And the emailing/commenting every other day thing helps, too. So there’s a few pluses. However, where I went wrong with getting myself down the list a bit better is beyond me. Sidetracked? Maybe. But this whole, cuttin’ myself slack thing obviously didn’t work too well, I gave myself too much slack, and essentially got nothing done.
So, in an effort to do better, I’ve begun a new tactic called the “Name-Calling Cough” tactic. Have you ever heard of it? It’s where you cough something to that person, pretending to cough, masking an insult. Only in this case, since we’re writing, we type out what you’d pretend-cough to that person, only this person is to me, myself, so I’m typing this to myself.
I know, I’ve probably lost you.
Okay, let’s pretend person A is talking to person B, and person B has majorly screwed up. It would go something like this:
Person A: You know you’re an idiot, right?
Person B: What did you say?
Person A: *coughyou’reanidiotcough*
Person B: What?
Alright, that might not’ve been the best example. Just trust me when I tell you that belittling myself for being a lazy-body just might do the trick. Or get a laugh. Or both. Whatever.
This week’s to do list. So help me, if I don’t get some of this off the list final-fricken-ly, I may have to ground myself.
Let’s see how that works for me! I swear, I will be grounded from doing anything fun if I don’t act responsible and try to do some of these things. Who wants to be in charge, raise your hand?
Would you like to join us this week for To-Do Tuesday? I promise I won’t use the “Name-Calling Cough Tactic” on you! Just don’t try to wallpaper the entire planet, or something too overeager to start with, taking on too much like you-know-who. Start with just a few things. Don’t over-do it. Look at me, the idiot over here who doesn’t listen to her own advice, use me and my gray hair as an example, k?
Just so you know, you can join us at anytime, it doesn’t have to be on Tuesdays – the list will go up every Tuesday for you to link to, but you can make your list and link to us at any point in the week!
Remember, with “To-Do Tuesday“, we’re attacking our to-do lists each week, blogging about our lists and what we’ve got going on, and sharing it with each other to help keep each other accountable. Everyone should come back here to link up in the Mister Linky as the central “To-Do Tuesday Hub” so we can visit who’s participating and offer encouragement to each other throughout the week. Don’t forget to add the “To-Do Tuesday” button to your post, linking back to this post!
Let’s continue to cross items off our list as we go and help support each other in completing our lists! Don’t forget my useful HTML tutorial on how to effectively “
cross-out” or “check off” your items on your to-do list!
