Day/Eve 13- Countdown to Executive Secretary Live 2015- London

Yes. Yes, I am happy. I’m usually smiling like this with a coffee mug in my hands!

It’s a cold Friday evening here in Virginia. I’ve got a cup of Barry’s tea in hand. (I’m out of Bewley’s.) Our teenage daughter has just returned home from work. I’m doing what I do best. Make lists.

Isn’t that how it is for admins? we’re list-centric, list-addicted types? I adore lists. Hand-written lists on paper! (Scandalous!) Sure, I have tasks on my Outlook calendar at work, but at home I prefer paper. Nothing like the feeling of crossing items off a to-do list to make one feel incredibly productive. I love that lists have the ability to get clutter out of my head and allow me to focus on important things like paying attention to my kid and husband at dinner rather than having my mind wander and wonder.

So on my to-do list for London? I’m not missing out on that afternoon tea, that’s for certain. And the dinners and a few of the tours. I didn’t have a long enough stay to do any sight-seeing during my last visit and this time I’m making up for it.

And on my list for tomorrow? Completing the domestic Saturday ritual of doing laundry, cleaning house, running errands and a tiny bit of shopping for a few DC centric things I want to bring along for a few friends.

By the way, I’m loving the responses to my post. And, thanks for sharing it on Facebook. I do appreciate it!  Goodnight, folks!
