Current To-Do List

So much to do and so much to see! Life surely is in the fast lane right now for us. We are gearing up for Summer here [Nebraska, USA] and I am eager, but a bit unprepared too. In order to keep my mind right, I like to make to-do lists: adding to it the moment I think of something to add or else I will forget [I swear covid dementia is a thing!]. I figured I would make my list here and maaaaaybe it would inspire you or you’d inspire me by commenting your list in the comments!

Alright, here we go!

That is all I can currently remember. I am sure I am missing something. It seems like a lot considering most of it is to be done in the next 6 weeks, but having things to do is good for the mind. We just can’t forget to take time to just be as well. Finding those moments to slow down, have no agenda, and just be (bringing Monday no screen days/movie nights back).

What’s on your list?
