The Never-Ending To-Do List

I am a listmaker.  Okay, I'm an obsessive list much so that if I do something that's not on my to-do list, I'll write it in just so I can mark it off.  Yeah, I'm that bad.  Needless to say, I always have a to-do list, and there are several recurring items on my list...
  1. Laundry - Need I say more?  I hate laundry, because, unlike other chores, you can't ever say it's done.  It's never ending. 
  2. Quiet time - I absolutely have to have my quiet time every morning, or the day just doesn't feel right.  This little bit of time when the house is quiet is where I draw my strength through my Bible study and prayer.  It's also a chance to go over the day's plans and get myself mentally ready for the day ahead.
  3. Studying for something - Even though I'm out of school this semester, I still find myself always studying for something, whether it's work, a Bible study, or children's ministry.  Once college starts back in July, I'll have my nose buried in textbooks all the time.
  4. Cleaning - I'm so busy that cleaning often gets pushed to the back burner.  There's always, always cleaning to do.
  5. Exercise - It doesn't necessarily happen every day, but I try to work out five days a week or more.

Laundry! It just multiplies... literally :-) Quiet time is wonderful! Trying to get some every AM, too.
