I’ve always been one to write lists…and then never follow through with them. Mainly because I’d write lists that were WAY too overwhelming. Sometimes, I’ve even broken them down to the point where I had every minute of the day planned out. Hour by hour. Not good for a black-and-white type of person like me. If I didn’t get something completely done by the time I was supposed to move onto the next thing, the whole day would blow up in my face. So, I did not make a checklist today. But, boy, did I get a bunch done. And all before 10AM, too!
Made all three beds (eventually I will be having my girls making their own, but I’m starting small with them, too. Right now, they clear their places at mealtimes. Good enough for me.)
Vacuumed the downstairs (isn’t it great when you’re having people over?)
Emptied and reloaded dishwasher
Cleared kitchen counter tops
Washed pots and pans
It’s the little things that seem to make a big difference. Since tomorrow is Saturday, I’m usually thrown off my routine. But, the plan is to stick with it and maybe tackle one or two other things as well. Ah, the sweet smell of victory…no matter how small!
