On my Caught Up List:
  • Read paper with breakfast
    Sydb asked me why the papers are on my Caught Up List. I think they got put there because they were piling up when I was two to seven days behind reading them, and I decided to stay caught up to keep the sheer mass of paper down in cleaning the kitchen table.
  • Open mail
  • Answer Christmas Cards and write Thank You notes
    This is a seasonal item on this list -- I found a cache of un-answered cards from last year, and I don't want to repeat that this year.
  • Post receipts and bills
    I printed a report for Flar to tell me which bills to pay, when. Right now, we need more money before the first, to pay the automatic payments.
  • Kitchen Table
    I've got a pile of mail and two presents that need to be delivered, that are sitting on the table, and the rest of my stuff is cleared off of it. Mind you, there's still a gingerbread house taking up the middle of the table, and Critter and Timothy have stuff to put away...
  • Dishes
  • Laundry
    I have clean clothes to fold and put away
  • Coupons
    There were two circulars in today's paper to clip and sort

Other stuff I'd like to catch up on:

  • Post to 50BookChallenge
  • Write about Christmas shopping, Christmas Day and Presents
  • Add icons to my Caught Up icon for Kitchen Table and Bills
  • Catch up on medical bills, which probably won't get a separate item on the Caught Up List, since they're technically bills
  • Start catching up on files
  • Work through the "things to do" basket that's been building up.

I'm feeling generally more relaxed about time, which is a good thing. And more productive, with a default list of things to do each morning, and default structure for the week. It helps to get going, when I have a list to get me started. Especially when the list doesn't start with some really big impossible task.
