There are days I feel like I am lazy. I look at my grandmother. She can run circles around me. And to think she had five kids, a farm, and a much different life (no microwave for example) and still did everything...well, I just feel downright slothful.
And some days I am.
But sometimes what I like to do at the END of the day is think about what I did accomplish that day rather than what I didn't.
And sometimes I find out I did more than I realized.
Such as today...
- Got up before I really wanted to and made donut holes with child 2 for some quality time (and a yummy breakfast). Then I managed to photograph them and blog about them on the cooking blog a little later.
- folded a load of laundry
- got another load started
- cleaned up the kitchen from our popcorn/shakes night last night
- read the newspaper (I like to be up on current events)
- scheduled the meals for the next week
- made a grocery list based on the menu of meals for next week
- played a game with child 2 on Wii (didn't really feel like it but sometimes we just have to do these things)
- made lunch for child 3 and myself
- mediated arguments and disagreements, dealt out consequences to any rule breakers
- made the bed
- put away clothes
- responded to e-mails, texts, and blog posts
- watched daughter's last basketball game
- went to the grocery store on a whirlwind trip
- put away groceries
- made/enjoyed dinner with friends
- made a dessert (fruit pizza) with Maria as a special treat
- rocked a sweet baby (not ours)
- cleaned up the kitchen/table after our meal
- vacuumed up cobwebs and glitter in the dining room (no, they were in separate places)
- played my turn in some Words with Friends games
- read today's Bible reading and wrote on the Radical Experiment blog
- wrote this entry for this blog :)
- read a couple of magazines, noting interesting recipes or websites to visit
- wore blue to support a nephew with autism
- got some items for our Life Group tomorrow
So I may not be my grandmother. I will probably never be. But I am getting some things done, whether they are on the "to do" list or not...
