This “decree” recently appeared in our bread cupboard.
Apparently my oldest child had eaten one crust too many and he was taking kitchen law into his own hands. Granted, 50 lashes and a possible death penalty are pretty steep punishment for a crime of this nature, but HE HAD HAD ENOUGH!
I can relate. I’ve been a little tetchy myself the last week or so as the incredible expanding to-do list has taken over my life. I have decided to post my own decree.
Official Decree #1
(which will, hereafter, trump every other decree, past or future)
I hereby decree that every errand or “emergency” that surfaces in the course of any given day will be added to the end of the to-do list.
Said list will be re-evaluated every evening and any items of a time-sensitive nature will be moved to the top of the list for the next day.
Those items at the top of said list will be dealt with in a timely fashion after I have completed three uninterrupted hours of writing.
Of course, the most important place to post this is on my own office wall because the eyes that most need to read it are my own.
