Lists

I am unable to focus, as a result I have returned to making lists to get things accomplished. Even the most basic housekeeping requires that I make a list to remember it. I can look at something and forget what I am supposed to do. 

The list are split on the page, once work tasks were included but this is no longer the case. I have not managed to work in some time as a result of circumstances. The list are often far to detailed but they help me to focus and at least accomplish a couple of things. 
It all starts here
The items on my lists are what others would consider a simple part of the daily routine. While during the summer it is not broken up into hours it is still detailed. (Breaking it into hours is a left over habit from days of having a work schedule to create by myself).

Example of the List

Wash dishes
Take trash out
Clean kitchen counters
Wipe down stove
Laundry

You get the idea, only the lists are typically much longer and broken down into steps for each room. The days that I do not have a list I do not manage to get more than one or two things accomplished. 

May your days be productive whether with a list or from memory.

Left

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“Yes.”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
