Two-Plate Minimum

Per usual, I was poked awake this morning by several to-dos swirling around in my subconscious. At 3am.

And, per usual, I got up to transfer them out of my head and onto paper so I could get back to sleep. At 5:30am, I made my way to the kitchen and reviewed my list.

20 to-dos (or plates to spin) today.

I should clarify - this is my household list (errands, kids' stuff, personal stuff). My work list is just as long, if not longer.

Honestly. I'm seriously considering imposing a two-plate minimum on my daily activities. And, as I diligently campaign against product development "scope creep", I need to ensure that my list actually shrinks during the day instead of expanding like it often does.

Maybe I ought to look into hiring a bouncer...
