  1. This is such an exhaustive list, Vinitha. Presently, I’m too exhausted to try anything new. Just floating along. Hopefully, I’ll feel better soon. Stay well and safe! ♥

    1. After publishing this I came up with a few more. Most of which are things I postpone from doing over the years.
      I understand, Corinne, I feel demotivated multiple times a day. Like yesterday I didn’t do anything. We are in survival mode currently. If you would like to talk, I’m a ping away. Hope that things will get better soon.
      Take care, Corinne. Hope you are feeling better now. ❤️

  2. That’s a helpful list, Vinitha
    I am glad I actually went ahead and did quite a few of things on this list.
    Loved #9 and now it is on my to-do list.

  3. Not one , not ten but 54!!! Thats amazing vineetha. You are really resourceful. Appreciate that.
    My take away from this post are many but the one on priority is de-cluttering the fridge. Its been pending so long.

What do you think? Please share! :)
