I have our General meeting for the Writers' group at large which is a chunk out of my day. So I not only wrote myself a list, but I wrote a list in the order in which I must accomplish everything.
This task was number three after Get Gas and Make Soup (because I won't be home all day to make dinner). Next is Get Coffee for the meeting. I also need to go to the post office and the grocery store for milk and then the Dollar Store for gift bags. Oh yeah, I've got to remember to pick up the kids. Can't forget the kids.
That's just today's tasks. I still have much more to do as I storm my way to Christmas.
