Have I been playing or Am I disorganized?

I've always thought of myself as an organized person. I've made to-do lists for years, sometimes starting the night before with the next day's list. There's the Call list, the Go list, the House list. So why, since returning from our cruise, have I not gotten anything done?

I made a big list and set it by my computer. It's still here.

What I've accomplished:
Paid bills, put up dill pickles, kept the grandkids overnight.

Downloaded 500 photos from the camera, put nearly 200 of them on a flash drive, and took them to Walmart to be printed. They look great.

Judged the Orange Rose contest via attachments. I should have done this before we left. There were four entries. It took over an hour each. There was a deadline.

Gave a talk at the local Rotary Club yesterday noon about publishing. Had to think about it and write it first.

Took my car into the dealership for what I thought was something minor except there was also something major wrong with it. So major that they floated me a rental car for 24 hours. Said rental car needed someone to get out and push it up the hill. It was crapola, and I drive a four-year-old Chevy Trailblazer, which isn't exactly luxury class. However, to be fair, the repairs were done that day and the rental and I only had to pull over and look up the instructions once.

Wrote the article for the North Texas eNews about the trip. Took DAYS to do it. Decided on the photos to accompany the four parts. Uploaded part one to the site, then the photos wouldn't do right and it's been two days deciding with the editor what to do about it. This afternoon, I hope, if nothing else comes up, I'll finish.

What I haven't accomplished:
Deciding whether or not to make an online album.

Making a collector's box of the trip to match the two from Australia except I can't find a box even remotely similar to what I have. When I found something that "would do", I bought the wrong color.

Written the two short stores for Woman's World that I thought up on the trip. They're good ideas, but when I ran them by the spouse, he frowned at one and shrugged at the other. We'll see.

Queried Texas Co-op Power Magazine with two ideas.

Did I mention my sister was coming? That Father's Day is Sunday and I'm getting another batch of canning cucumbers on Friday?

When I figure out where my time has gone, I'll let you know.
