I think I am starting to get a split personality. Most of the time our day runs along as normal doing homeschool, cleaning, playing, cooking. Then there are moments when thoughts interrupt and I begin listing in my head things we need to get done, what I need to pack for the hospital, menus and lists to write and put in a folder here at home to keep things running, and so on. The interruptions come at random times – I may be reading to the children, cooking, or even waking up in the middle of the night. It’s almost funny and without paper to write it all down I would be feeling even more scattered.
Today, for example, I added to my hospital stay list the following items:
- Pads for postpartum bleeding and a bottle of tylenol.
- Mason’s notebook for keeping track of doctors, medicines, and information.
- The charger for my cell phone.
I also remembered that I need to gather bill paying items (checkbook, stamps, envelopes) into a folder so that when bills come in they will get paid.
Ah well, at least I’m thinking of these things now, while I’m home and can do something about them, right?
