I figure slow progress is still progress, right? Right.
Well, my slow progress is visible in my kitchen. Every day I do a full drainer of dishes and leave them to dry. Every day I put away the clean dry dishes when I get up in the morning. ... Read more
I did pretty well today, but my plan for the morning got sidetracked by some computer niceties, and then my plan for the afternoon got sidetracked by some other computer things, and then my plan for the evening got sidetracked by watching Da Vin... Read more
Getting organized isn't easy. It's rather a process, is it not? I am in the midst of doing so. (Actually, I'm kind of ALWAYS in the midst of getting organized, but that's beside the point.)
This time around, I am attempting to make liberal ... Read more
Well, I've established that on days that J is home, I need to either involve him in my planning the night before or make my plans really really loose, with lots of room to make changes on the fly.
Today was a good day, for sure. It just was... Read more
I had a really good day today. Got pretty much everything done that I needed to get done. And I ran for the full two minutes during my interval training this afternoon! (I have four two-minute runs with three-minute walks in between, plus a five... Read more
But I was making progress!
Isn't that always the way... I think I've found the magic thing that will help me get on top of things, and it stops working after only a few days.
Problem with the above thought: there's no such thing as a magic solution.
Problem with th... Read more
We all have them. Things that derail us, that take us on detours and get us off-task. All of a sudden, three hours have gone by and nothing concrete has been done. On the other hand, you now know more than anyone else in your circle about how to... Read more
Busy day today.
I had a good day today. I got off-track a bit, but I still made it to swimming and was early for my movie "date" this afternoon with a friend. (We saw Tangled.) This was as a bit of a shake-up to our usual sit around the coffee shop and chat and... Read more
Trying to stay on top of everything.
It's very difficult to stay on top of things, and I know that it's hard for people who don't have ADHD as well, so I'm not writing about this to try to get people to feel sorry for me or anything like that. More I think it's good to see where we... Read more
Last night I finished reading Sandi Patty's book, The Edge of the Divine: Where Possibility Meets God's Faithfulness. Sandi Patty is a Christian singer who is a part of the Women of Faith organization. I borrowed the book from my mother at Chris... Read more
Today was a good day.
We were only a little bit late for church this morning, which was good. After church, we went to the mall and had Taco Time for lunch, then went to see The Adjustment Bureau, which was most excellent. Since we'd just had lunch, we didn't bother ... Read more
Just a little bit of news...
I bought a new pair of jeans yesterday, along with a couple of tank tops with lace trim, all from Reitman's. I like shopping at Reitman's because the clothes are stylish and suit my lifestyle (that of a housewife) and because they sell regular s... Read more
Dinner was delicious. :)
I made a really good dinner tonight.
Preheated the oven to 375 F.
3 lb chicken, stuffed it with two lemons that I had cut into quarters.
Small mixing bowl, added 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1 teaspoon rosemary, and... Read more
I like to cook. I enjoy trying new recipes, but my favourite things to make are good, solid, down-home meals that I don't need to fuss over - and that includes reading a recipe! As a result, there are a few things I make pretty regularly: soup, ... Read more
The "EVERY Day" part of the plan.
Here I am, as promised, with the list of Solutions I'll be continuing or trying to work into my life for the next three weeks. I say continuing because some of them are things I already do (score!), not because I'm going to copy the Solutions fr... Read more
