Non-specific tasks

Don't you hate it when your husband comes home and asks you what you did all day and the best you can come up with is "uhhhh...I was busy but can't think of anything unusual." or "uhhh, housework?" That sounds so lame but what probably took up most of your day is what my daughter calls non-specific tasks. 

All those little things take up time even if they don't seem worth mentioning.  Things like making and returning phone calls, taking out the trash, clutter control, pet care, budgeting, meal planning and preparation, returning library books, reorganizing shelves and drawers, emptying the dishwasher, cleaning out the car...and this doesn't even start to cover tasks associated with child care or outside tasks like gardening or the big projects. 

It would be an interesting exercise to actually write down what you do in a "normal" day.  I think you'd be surprised.  Those "little" things contribute to the smooth running of your home and family and are are you.
