"A Great Day" Results ~ Monday

How did I do on my list?

1. Run ~ I actually walked 2 miles this morning. I still have a nagging spot in my back and didn't want to aggravate it since I didn't exercise any this weekend. Hoping for a partial run tomorrow morning.

2. Bible Before Blog ~ Read 1 Peter 1 and meditated and journaled on it.

3. Blog ~ Yep.

4. Daily Household Chore ~ I got my laundry caught up and put away (big feat for me!). I actually did my floors yesterday as a way to dispel some anger I was experiencing. :)

5. Something meaningful with kids ~ Since Kyndal had a doctor's appointment and we spent a good part of the day alone together, we went and ate lunch together. That's something we don't get to do very often without others tagging along.

6. Healthy meal ~ Chicken and dumplings. Done by 5:30 p.m.

7. Kids down by 9:00 p.m. ~ I got Eli and Brynne bathed, starting at 7:00 p.m. I had their beds turned down, and them in it on time, and all my "nightly preparations for the next day" done, as well. I even made sure the older kids were upstairs for the night by 9:00 p.m. That took some preparation in the form of texting to Dawson who was at a neighborhood friend's house.

8. Time with Rick ~ Rick had gone to the driving range after dinner. I know he appreciated me having everything done so I could have uninterrupted time with him when he got home. We sat together and watched t.v. and had a snack.

9. Healthy eating ~ For breakfast I had oatmeal. For lunch I had a chicken teriyaki sandwich from Subway and some Baked Lays. For dinner I had some chicken and dumplings. And for a snack I had a bowl of bran cereal with fresh strawberries and blueberries.

10. Time for myself ~ I went out and took some pictures of my flowers blooming and cared for my azaleas. I also did some research on how to start some Rose of Sharon shoots from my existing bush. These things sooth me.

Observations: I wasted some late afternoon time blogging and surfing the net, so dinner got a little behind, but not too bad. I certainly felt more calm after dinner because I had the majority of my daily to-dos done early in the evening, even though I had been gone away from home several hours of the day for Kyndal's doctor appointment. I certainly had to stay "on task" to get things done when I wanted them done.


  1. This is something I really need to do...put my life into priorities. I feel overwhelmed and pulled in 50 million directions most of the time. I usually never get done what I NEED to do, let alone anything I WANT to do. I feel like to even start, I'm gonna have to let people down and that makes me feel selfish! But in the meantime, I'm becoming bitter because I feel like instead of living my life, life is living me. I'm gonna sit down and try to weed some things out. Thanks for the push!!! Way to go with your list by the way! It never seems to surprise me the difference productivity makes to my sense of self worth! Hope you have a good day, Christie U.

  2. Hey! What is this?! I love this! :) You know I'm constantly "copying" you, such a slacker I am. I think I may need to try this. . . Love you!


Getting comments is the BEST part of blogging! Please leave me one, if you want to! Even if you don't have a blog, just leave me an "Anonymous" comment and sign your name in the body of the comment. I love to see who's reading all this craziness that comes from my mind! Have a great day!
