My “Did Do” List From Today

One of the blogs I follow, Rookie Moms, one blog post mentioned writing a “Did Do” list when you start feeling like you aren’t getting anything accomplished.  It’s sort of the opposite of a “To Do” list – you just chronicle all the things you did that day from the moment you woke up.

I love To Do lists.  The thing I love about them the most, though, is CROSSING THINGS OFF THE LIST!  It makes me feel so accomplished!

So, on days like today, when I have lost track of time but know I did something productive today, I like to write down my “Did Do” list.  Now, today is a Saturday, so Baby Girl got to spend some precious time with her grandparents, affording me some extra freedom in my schedule for the day.  I will leave out the obvious daily personal hygiene tasks, but please know I DID brush my teeth this morning!  Here goes –

  • deposited trash bag in garage for hubby to deal with later
  • turned off sprinkler
  • finished last load of laundry
  • showered/dried hair
  • collapsed in bed – 10:30 p.m.

Did I mention my parents are coming to visit????

I think the only reason I have enough energy to get all of this done is because of my new food regimen and the Walk at Home workouts I do.  I hope you are seeing some great things happening in your life because of your positive, healthy decisions!  Blessings upon you.  ~Ephesians 3:20-21
