What I did today

Aug 09

Do you ever feel like you spend the whole day running around a getting nothing done? I’ve felt that way a lot lately because I have so many large projects looming over my head. And then I have to remind myself of what I did accomplish.

    • I installed drip irrigation in the last 8 feet of my garden bed
    • I mixed compost into the top bit of the bed
    • I planted carrots and beets, the carrots under burlap in the hopes that they will germinate (although it might still be too hot, we’ll see)

    • I built and painted another planter box for my grow shelf.
    • Did Day 1 of the Couch-To-5K program (and realized how out of shape I am!)

    • I filled out and submitted all the online forms and paperwork for my kids to do virtual academy this year (woo hoo! This has been a big stress. I just need Xander’s signature when he gets home tomorrow and the paperwork can go in the mail)
    • I got about half of my chore checklist cards made on the computer.

  • I made homemade turkey-vegetable soup from a leftover turkey breast carcass and some old vegetables that needed to be used. How’s that for a cheap, healthy meal? I made biscuits to go with it, too. And it was yummy, which is never guaranteed when I don’t use a recipe.
  • I went on a date with my husband!
  • I blogged!!
All this on top of the standard dropping-0ff-and-picking-up-from gymnastics (about 1 1/2 hrs total), feeding munchkins and the ceaseless runs to the bathroom with my dear almost-potty-trained 3-yr-old who’s found that the best way to get Mommy’s attention is to start screaming, “I’m going to pee in my panties!!!” while running around in circles like a maniac.
Whew! I guess it was a good day after all.

    Well, thanks. :) Peter made me write out a list of everything I need to do. I ran out of room on the white board, but it was motivating to get myself in gear.
