Quotes About NOT Sleeping

If you can't sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It's the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.

Dale Carnegie

Oh... does that sound familiar! We are talking about a former worry wart! Thank heavens for the internet! It gave me something to do when my brain wouldn't shut down!

'Amityville Horror' house for sale

The house from the film The Amityville Horror....Image via Wikipedia

Even if you had a million or so dollars lying around, would you buy a house as famous as this one? I don't think that I would sleep a wink! I know that there is probably nothing in it, but on the other hand, the minute I began reading the article, my browser crashed. Haunted... probably not, but it still freaked me out for a minute or so.

What can you get your dad on Father's Day??

Just in case you are losing sleep over what to get dad for Father's Day this year, I have one that I know would be much appreciated.

Clean out the garage for him. Kind of a win-win situation. Your mom will be just as grateful!

Wednesday

It's easy to check out your to-do list and then walk away. You simply aren't in the mood to do any of those things. Well, I think I learned a little trick to help you cross everything off of that list! Here's my plan of action!

1. Keep your list small. Actually I create a list a day for the coming week and I only put ten things on each list! That means by the end of the week, I will have accomplished 70 different things. That's pretty amazing if you think about it.

2. Decide what important stuff needs to get done and what's not so important. I try to have both kinds of items on each daily list. That way things are getting accomplished, but the list is not over powering.

3. Set time limits for each project, you might be surprised. I always hated cleaning under the kitchen sink, so I would schedule ten minutes on my kitchen timer and when the timer went off, I was done. Funny thing about that was the fact than more often than not, the area under my kitchen sink would be spotless at the end of that amount of time. I had been putting something off that would only take me ten minutes... I just didn't realize it!

4. Schedule fun things to do on your daily to-do list. For every five items that aren't so much fun, try to pencil in five items that you might actually enjoy! Here's just one example that works for me. I love muffins, but I hate getting the kitchen all messed up and then there are all the steps required to bake a batch. More often than not, I decide that I don't really need those muffins. But my little trick is to make up batches of dry mix and leave it in my baking cupboard. When I want muffins, all I have to do is pull out the mix, add an egg, some milk and sometimes a little oil and all is left is the stirring part. Suddenly, muffin making moves over to my fun list. Just like that!!
