Oh. Maybe that's why I get stressed out? It's not a complete list. Every woman I know has a list like this in her head. It's so hard to relax and enjoy and be in the moment with ... whatever... because you should always be doing something else. Or you could. I read an ad about a book exhorting you to make more of every moment in the day. EEK. That's the last thing I need - to feel guilty about my time management. I'm sure I could do more, but then I start getting really behind on my "rest, mental" and it's not pretty.
You have to have a list, you have to prioritize your list. Have your husband help you. Men are fabulous at prioritizing. And they don't even mind when it's "their fault" that you don't get to do something or other. ;) (I love submission some days).
Speaking of blogging, there's a related blog about choice in creation and why I'm glad I'm not an atheist that wants birthing... but I think I'll put that over at HHH.
