Thanks. We’ve tried variations on this, but I think I’d like to get back to it. My wife is pretty good about calendaring stuff, but in practice, that doesn’t really seem to help her get on top of stuff that takes multiple steps/days to complete. I suppose I should have mentioned that we also have a two year old in the house, which raises the degree of difficulty on getting anything done without having to start/stop 100 times. I think that is where a lot of the problems come in. She starts on something on her to-do list, gets interrupted, and then forgets to complete it, or loses the momentum towards completing the task and it ends up sitting 1/2 finished.
