Today I decided to write a to-do list but backwards.
I started to write a to-do list for today and really got discouraged, looking at all of the things that I was trying to fit into about 12 hours seemed unrealistic! Then it hit me… I threw away the To-Do list and started to write down what I did accomplish– my “I DID LIST”
So here it is at 11:30pm… my I DID LIST
- 10 minutes of prayer and devotional time
- Fed and clothed the kids
- Washed all the dishes
- Wiped counters down
- Pruned the roses
- Picked peas and beans
- Did 1 load laundry
- Vacuumed Downstairs
- Sat down with Hubby to plan vacation and go over the next 3 months calendars.
- Picked a date for Little Guy’s 1st birthday.
- Wrote checklist for beach vacation
- Entered receipts into Pear Budget
- Worked on Budget
- Went to target (diapers, wipes, cheap Eggo’s and some other bargains!)
- Washed 2nd load of laundry
Inventoried our deep freezer and stockpile in the basement (more on this later!)
- Typed up inventories
- Took a shower
Now I didn’t write down every little thing like playing with the kids or the potty incident. But you get the idea I hope.
It is so encouraging to look back and see everything I accomplished today.
This works for me and I might keep doing this when I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. I like to see progress, I know there is some special term for this but hey it’s 11:30 and I’ve done a lot today so I’m off to bed!
