Today is one of those glorious days where I got up an hour before my children (!!!) and started the day right. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something about making your bed, that literally gives you a 350% chance of having a better day. Those are pretty good odds, and coupled with strong coffee, well, you’re pretty much guaranteed to rule the world.
Changing out of pajamas helps too. How about some makeup? Heck, let’s go all out. If this is going to be a great day, I’m going to want pretty eyelashes, more coffee, and a list!
If you’ve followed my blog for some time, you probably know that I’m a major list-a-holic. No joke. A habit? An addiction? Let’s call it a lifestyle. To-do lists, shopping lists, packing lists, lists of lists I need to make. I love lists. They help keep my ADD tendencies at bay and give me focus. Do you ever feel busy ALL DAY, working, cleaning, starting projects, trying to finish projects, caring for kids, making sure your house doesn’t burn down, and somehow 8pm rolls around and it appears you’ve literally done nothing!? Lists help. Here’s what I want to do today. Here’s what I will do today. Even one item checked off is better than none.
Dinner in the crock pot before 10am? Now THAT feels good. If I don’t achieve anything else today, that will be enough (and the house having not burned down, of course). Check!
Kiddos are napping and schooling at the moment, so it’s time to get BUSY. Next up? Must start binding a yummy quilt I just got back from my dear friend, Denae of Plain Jane Quilting (check her out! so quick and affordable!). Hard to see in this pic, but the quilting is just the loveliest, swirliest feathers you’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to get it bound and washed so I can share a ton more pics!
And I’m off! Wishing you a glooooooriously productive…, or mellow…, or just plain happy day. *HUGS*
