Chore ADD?

There are so many things we want to do to make Rhapsody our home, and so many things that have to be done to make sure that she will be safe for us, and remain our home.

Both of us have lists, mine are written down, Bob keeps most of his in his head, but we both have many things that we both want to accomplish, and things we feel we should tackle, some sooner, some at a later date, and some that we should do sooner but wish it could be at a later date.
One of the big problems is that there are so many things to do that as you start one activity something else will invariably catch your eye and you are off on another tangent, hopefully to return to the original task before too long. Some chores will stare you down and not let your attention wander from them for too long, others are easier to let go.

I understand that we are living on a boat and there will always be lists of things to take care of, but the chore ADD? Perhaps this will change, or perhaps I will always suffer from some degree of this. The newness of it all is both enjoyable and a little disconcerting. Much to learn, much to organize and much to fix. In the words of Scarlett from Gone With the Wind (now that's a great boat name) "I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow.

We love to hear your comments.
