The Project


Back in March when my parents were visiting, my mom and I were discussing all the wanna do projects that tend to add up in our lives,
and yes, don't forget the don't wanna do projects too.

I don't know about you, but on rare occasion I will find myself with a nice chunk of un-spoken for time. A half a day with no deadlines, no errands, no routine cleaning or laundry to be done, and I say to myself "this would be a great time to............ and that's where I get stuck.
I have so many choices of things I could do that I just can't settle on one and before you know it - poof - the day slips away.
Well, mom & dad to the rescue!. After they left, I found my solution. There it was, sitting on the dresser in the guest room right where they left it ..... the project jar!
The note inside said "call home"
The idea is simple, put all your projects in the jar and when you have a chunk of time pick one project and do it.
Sounds simple enough but after calling my mom things kinda got a bit more complicated.....

I love this idea. I think I will start a project jar tomorrow. Is it fair to pick again if you choose something like "clean the bathrooms"?

Great idea! But my heart says: I would only put fun project ideas in the jar. I think those routine tasks are for a different list.
