I used to feel silly adding a task on my "to do" list after I did it. Was I trying to make myself feel better by recording more tasks. Or, did I want to feel more accomplished? I finally decided not to ask silly questions. I write them down to remember when I did a certain task last. And, what is wrong with feeling more accomplished! :)
On another note, after one year, I have found a sign to go over my stove. It says, "FAMILY The Best Thing In Life." Hooray, the search is over!
