    Thanks! I got on to check off my to do list here and see that I've basically not done a blessed thing on that list. Instead, a new list of things to get done for graduation has formed. Thursday night is graduation. Friday is a big cleaning and shopping day. Saturday is the "drive by party."

    As you know my weekly list remains largely unchanged. There are weeks when I get nothing on that list ticked off and weeks when I rock and get it all done. That is life and we just get back to it when we can.

    I was just saying something to that effect this morning to my dh. That's the biggest takeaway that I've come across since keeping up the weekly list here. Live the interrupted life first and use the checklist to fill in the uninterrupted life.

    I think having a plan is what keeps me in line. Does not mean I always stay with in the lines but I know where to start when I'm off track.
