It is not beauty that endears, it’s love that makes us see beauty.

A List

A list for you today.

It is the last week of school. Most kids are not even going. My kids however are going until a birthday book shows up. Hopefully that day is today because I am tired of fighting with them in the mornings!

I keep making plans for how I think the summer will go, but I have this feeling I am doing all of this planning for nothing really.

There are times I feel like Starbucks isn’t close enough. Oh wait, it isn’t.

I I wish some people lived a whole lot closer.

I have times where I wish I had next to no “things” but that turns into times where I wish I had more of something. I keep telling myself less stuff means less laundry, dusting, etc. but it doesn’t really end up changing regardless. I still want less and more.

I would really like to just sit down and read a book without interruption of someone wanting something. That means I need to find a good book worth reading. The latter part is harder that is seems, I assure you.

I do love my children – I do! I am enjoying this time at home with Bailey as it makes me somewhat more patient, and I get to spend the good times with her. Oh, and the bad times. Ha!

I struggle some days with wanting to do anything. That was my issue with yesterday. I think it was just because it was so dang hot.

I have been irritated and I wish the feeling would leave.

I cleaned my Keurig but it is still acting stupid. Unreal since I got it at Christmas.  It works perfectly fine, it just takes too long in my opinion to brew a 10 ounce cup of coffee.

That is all for my list today. Short and sweet. Random at best.

Random Stuff

Random stuff for you here….

Tomorrow is Friday, but today felt more like a Friday to me than a Thursday.

December 9th is coming fast.

December 5th is coming faster.

Trying to plan my next race isn’t as easy as it sounds.

I feel like I could use a coffee right now.

It is 8:12 pm.

Sales goals aren’t going to make themselves.

I love the ability to come up with a campaign that makes a client happy, and is fun to present.

I think I need to go stroll the aisles of an office supply store.

Stationary and pens make me happy.

My kids have tomorrow off, yet I still have to go to work.

I have a chocolate party tomorrow, book party, kids party, and a potential spa party between tomorrow and Saturday.

I am going to be busy.

I am going to miss Alaska.

I admit it.

I can’t wait for the beach.

I can’t wait to sweat.

I think this is all I have for now.

Not much – but it is something.

Managing Monday #8

So this morning we had success! I changed my daily routine list a little bit. I mean the items on it didn’t change, but me adding time periods to it did.  I usually make a list that looks like the following:

4:45 up – get coffee and breakfast started

5:00 unload and load dishwasher – fluff dryer

5:15 news- blog – coffee

5:45 shower – get ready

6:15 wake girls – get girls ready

6:55 – out the door

I make a time frame for each project to be done – and it puts my OCD in overdrive when I screw this up.  I decided to experiment a little and just make a list of things to accomplish and goal times.  My daily routine list looked more like this today:


Coffee and Breakfast

Dishwasher – Laundry

Blog – Enjoy Coffee and News

Get girls up and ready

6:55 goal time to be out the door loading the car.

Success happened for us today! It was such a smoother morning – I was happy! I think I have found that if I don’t make a strict list – I don’t feel so much pressure to get it all in and done. It would cause me to feel like a failure for not getting everything right (based on my timetable).  With the new format I can make it all fit and if I am not feeling it, or we have no bread to make breakfast sandwiches, or no laundry to fluff – I can linger longer on other tasks and not feel bad!

Isn’t it funny how little things can affect us in such a large way?  I am going to try to do this with a few other aspects of my life and see how well it works!
