Tell me again how not to be overwhelmed
I need a refresher, please.
I'm reaching that point again where I fear I'll never be able to do everything that needs to be done. Since I first came to this forum a couple of years ago, so much has been accomplished: new bedroom, new kitchen, siding, porch, two wood floors refinished, new ceiling in the hallway, new floors in both bathrooms, and one bath in the process of a complete remodel. I should feel empowered, right?
Well, to a degree I do. Or I have. But every new room has resulted in STUFF from that room getting moved to the living room (presently without furniture as I gave it all away), where it sits in boxes or whatever, waiting to be sorted through. I haven't seen my piano in over a year. The delivery of the new furniture depends on me getting the windows and bookshelves painted, and that depends on getting the crap out of the living room. The fact that this house has almost no closet space doesn't help. Neither does my three-day-a-week job or the second job I do at home for extra money.
I'm trying to remember....should I make a list of everything that needs to be done, and then prioritize it? Should I break everything down into smaller, more manageable, less overwhelming jobs? Do I set the timer for 15 minutes, or is that for routine cleaning? Help!!
