June Checklist

I know it can be hard to keep up. Believe me, I know. But I can tell you from experience, that being organized and having a checklist is one way to start tackling the hard stuff. What I like about a list, is that when I get a brain freeze and don't know what I should do that day, I can get some ideas from my task list and see what I can wrap my thoughts around and actually get something done, rather than sit there wondering……. yes sometimes sitting …
